ABOUT PRIYANKA CHOPRA:
Priyanka Chopra is a multifaceted personality and one of the most
recognized and applauded talents in the world. Her foray into the
entertainment industry began at the age of 17 when she won Miss India
and went on to win Miss World the following year, a title that
catapulted her to international stardom. In September 2015, Priyanka
made her American TV acting debut as Alex Parrish on ABC’s hit drama
‘Quantico,’ making history as the first Indian actor to star as the lead
of a TV drama series – Quantico is currently in its second season and
has been licensed in 212 territories (excluding the U.S. and Canada),
across 54 languages. In January 2016, Priyanka won a People’s Choice
Award for her role in ‘Quantico’ in the category of “Favorite Actress in
a New Television Series,” again making history as the first Indian
actress to win a People’s Choice Award; and in April 2016 she was
featured on the cover of TIME magazine’s coveted TIME 100 issue, as one
of the Most Influential People in the world. In May 2017 Priyanka will
also make her Hollywood film debut, as antagonist Victoria Leeds, in the
action comedy film ‘Baywatch,’ starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and
Zac Efron. With more than 54 million social media followers, and growing
by the day, Priyanka is also committed to using her reach for good.
Priyanka was recently named a global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, after
serving as a National Goodwill Ambassador to India for 10 years. She is
also a UN Foundation Girl Up Champion, and is involved in a number of
efforts to protect children’s rights and promote the education of girls
in India, including her namesake charity The Priyanka Chopra Foundation
for Health and Education. Priyanka splits her time between NYC and
Mumbai — but is quick to point out that she mainly lives on an airplane.
