She won the Miss India World title in 2000. For a kid like her, this was something extremely big. Most people in that situation would gloat and be proud of their achievements and go around and rub it in everyone’s face. But not Priyanka. Priyanka Chopra was modest and worked hard and made a name for herself in Bollywood.
Today she is one the most popular celebrated celebrity in the world and the ranks among the highest paid actresses in Bollywood. Last year around this time, Priyanka Chopra appeared on a business magazine and said something really profound. “I was a gawky kid, had low self-esteem, came from a modest middle-class background, had white marks on my legs … But I was damn hard working. Today, my legs sell 12 brands.” This thought of hers shows us how Priyanka has not changed one bit even after reaching the top. For Priyanka this is not about competition or about letting her guard down. its more about working hard and doing the one thing she loves the most with great care.
Priyanka Chopra can be counted as one of the few Bollywood celebrities who also started a career in music and its not just singing a song for their movie but an actual parallel career. She made her debut as a singer with her preppy song In My City. The song featured international rapper Will.I.Am.
The song was inspired from or rather tells us a story about Priyanka’s journey from a gawky kid to a international celebrity. The song was initially unsuccesfull but later got her the Best International Debut award at the People’s Choice Awards India. In My CIty also won three nominations at the WMA ; Best Female Artist, Best Song and Best Video. I’m pretty sure none of this would have happened if she did not work hard.
In April 2013, PC started working on her second song, Exotic featuring famous rapper, Mr Worldwide. The song was beautifully shot in South Beach, Florida and was released on 9 July 2013. 2 days after its release the song went viral and Priyanka Chopra was once again all over YouTube. Priyanka Chopra is now popular all over the world and its not just because of her spectacular work as an actor but also as a singer.
