Nov 04, 2017: Desi girl, Priyanka Chopra, continues to make the country proud with her achievements at the global level. The 35-year old actress has been named as one of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the world by Forbes, in its 2017 edition. This indeed is big news for all PeeCee fans.
Piggy Chops has grabbed the 97th spot on the list, while the chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, acquired the top position. Priyanka is also placed on the 15th spot in the list of world’s most powerful women in entertainment and media 2017.
Priyanka Chopra made her Forbes debut last year, when she grabbed the 8th position in the list of highest paid television actresses across the globe. With her performance in Quantico television series, Priyanka Chopra has gained a huge popularity in the US. In a recent interview with a portal, when asked as to what was that one thing which she can do in Hollywood and not in Bollywood, PC replied, “Nothing! At all, actually. The only thing that I think I get as an advantage in America vis-à-vis India is…for example, A Kid Like Jake. The movie that I’m doing…the lead cast is Claire Danes and Jim Parsons. But, it’s such an incredible story. It’s based on a play, it’s a first time director. It’s about a 4-year-old child who has a gender crisis and the parents don’t know how to deal with it. He wants to be Rapunzel instead of Spider-Man. How the school reacts and I’m the neighbour whose son doesn’t have gender issues and they are friends. You have people like Octavia Spencer. You have such incredible actors who have come together just to do 4 or 6 scenes. That’s the only thing that I miss in India.”
