Priyanka Chopra comes from a non film background, with both her parents being doctors in the Indian Army. She was born in Jamshedpur and was given a simple upbringing. Things changed for her when she participated in Femina Miss India Contest 2000, on the initiative of her mother and went on to win the runners up title in the contest followed by the crown of Miss World. After becoming a successful model, joining movies was the next obvious choice for this charming young diva. Priyanka attributes her success to the support of her parents and younger brother, Siddhartha and was really close to her father, who passed away with cancer recently. Priyanka is known for her humanitarian efforts too, supporting causes like women empowerment and better life for children.
Priyanka Chopra made her acting debut with a Tamil movie called “Thamizhan”, which released in 2002. Then came her Bollywood debut, with two films “Andaaz” and “Hero-Love Story of a Spy” in 2003. The movies got average response on the box office but Priyanka was appreciated as an actress. The real break came in the 2004 movie “Aitraaz”, which starred Priyanka in a negative role and fetched her Filmfare Award for the Best Performance in a Negative Role. Then came hits after hits, with an outstanding show of her acting prowess in “Fashion”, “Don 2”, “7 Khoon Maaf”, “Barfi”, “Krrish 3”, “Barfi” and “Agneepath”.
