Happy Birthday Priyanka Chopra One of the greatest working Indian actress of this generation, and a humanitarian who has spoken about the causes that she believes in, Priyanka Chopra turns 36 years old today. Her journey, from being Miss World, to an acclaimed actress who has won a national award and five Filmfare awards, has been very exciting and tumultuous. Her Hollywood projects, the television series, Quantico began with a promise but was finally cancelled this year due to deteriorating ratings, but she has already signed up for interesting projects, including Bharat, with Salman Khan and Shonali Bose’s drama, The Sky Is Pink, which is surely going to be a return for the actress to the dramatic territory.
Priyanka had a break out role in Aitraaz, which was equal parts shocking and risky. She played a conniving mistress, and was so believale that she ended up overshadowing co-actors, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Akshay Kumar. Her next significant role, in Fashion, won her a National Award for best actress. She played an aspiring model, who gets jaded by her profession as she becomes more successful, but finally receives some wisdom about her life because of her friends, played by Kangana Ranaut and Mugdha Godse.
She had a striking role in Kaminey, which was praised by many, and also shone in Don remake and Saath Khoon Maaf. However, one of her best performances was in Barfi, in which she played an autistic girl named Jhilmil. Priyanka overcame the cliches of playing a character with disability. She was also considered to be the highlight of the historical drama, Bajirao Mastani, in which she played Kashi Bai, the neglected wife of Rao.
Her personal life has also been a matter of great interest in the Media, and her recent public relationship with American singer Nick Jonas took the social media by storm as people talked about the cross over couple and how they would’ve come together. But, Priyanka Chopra is her own planet, and she needs no one to spotlight her. She has been getting better at her craft, and will hopefully continue to do in the years to come.
1. A phenomenal actress.
Throughout her career, Priyanka Chopra's versatility and extreme talent has gifted us beautiful roles that was portrayed so realistically and gloriously. Be it Jhilmil or Kashibai, she can do it all!
