Priyanka has won many recognitions and awards in her career, both national and international.

For the movie Fashion she won the National award for Best Actress in 2010.

Her performance in Mary Kom was exceptional as she played the real life five time world boxing champion on screen.

This year in 2016, she was conferred the prestigious Padma Shri by President Pranab Mukherjee .

In 2015, Priyanka became the first South Asian and a Bollywood actress to play a leading role in a prime-time American TV-show, Quantico.

This year in 2016, Priyanka Chopra has signed her first Hollywood movie, “Baywatch”, with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.

She is multi-talented and loves to sing. She got her first international single “In my city” released in 2012 featuring rapper Will.I.Am.

When all seems rosy and glam for Priyanka, one would think success comes easy. When asked how she sees her success in Bollywood, she says “Most outsiders look at the film world as something glamorous. But no one sees the hard work that goes into it. I haven’t taken a holiday in the last four years. I’m working 25 hours a day. There’s no time to sleep or to eat. (July 2007)”

What sets her apart is the zeal to set her own standards. She is clearly competing against herself, bettering her previous record each time. She continues to tread territories that no one has or even thought about. Few people has this kind of remarkable ability to focus and keep moving ahead in life than be bothered about what people around has to say or think about her.

At the Rashtrapati Bhawan, while receiving the Padma award she said like a true winner – ” I like to talk about my achievements than about my hardships. I am that kind of woman.(2016)”

She truly is inspiration personified not only for women all over the world, but also for the youths of this generation. She is a confident, hard working, ambitious and a sensible woman of today.

Priyanka you sure have a long way to go! Keep scaling new heights and give us all more reasons to look up to you!
