Priyanka Chopra is one of the biggest stars in the country and for good reason. Here’s a list of the amazing things she has achieved between the years 2015 to 2018. Have a look!
2018: Love Is In The Air
2018 is turning out to be a great year for Priyanka. Her new Hollywod movie is up for releae, she has signed a big bdget Bollywood movie, she is writing a memoir and dating a Jonas brother! Have a look.
In January, Priyanka was busy shooting for the third season of Quantico and rumours of her being a guest at the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were more or less confirmed.
For the first time in all these months, PC spoke about Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding, but her answer was cryptic as always. Priyanka also sued absconding businessman Nirav Modi’s company for not paying her for featuring in their ad films.
In the wake of Sridevi’s sudden death, Priyanka Chopra wrote a heartfelt note for the late actress on social media. PC also has an adorable nickname for her frequent co-star and friend Ranveer Singh which was revealed in an Instagram live. On the work front, Priyanka launched the website of her production company in order to encourage and hire young talent and her mother Madhu Chopra revealed that her colleagues were shocked that Priyanka was backing Bhojpuri cinema.
While Priyanka has been killing it worldwide, the superstar also faced racism as she was dropped from a movie because of her skin colour. The trailer of her second Hollywood movie dropped and it garnered good reviews. PC finally confirmed that she is attending the royal wedding. She and Jimmy Fallon also bonded on their friendship with Meghan Markle. Priyanka also signed a Bollywood movie after a long, long time. The actress will be seen next opposite Salman Khan in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat.
In May, Priyanka’s Quantico wrapped up and she looked amazing at the royal wedding. She posted the sweetest wish for Meghan and Prince Harry on her Instagram too. But the one photo that REALLY broke the Internet was PC snuggling with Nick Jonas while holidaying with friends.
June has been the ‘breakout’ month for Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s relationship. It started with some good ol’ Instagram PDA and dinner dates, but we desis collectively lost our shit when Nick and Priyanka visited Mumbai! Priyanka was Nick’s date at a cousin’s wedding and Nick’s brother Kevin also said he thinks PC is awesome! Priyanka also started following Nick’s father on Instagram (if that’s not the next level, what is?)
Priyanka’s show Quantico came under fire for showing Hindu nationalists as terrorists in the show and the makers and Priyanka issued an apology for the same. Priyanka also announced that she will be writing a memoir titled Unfinished. Coming back to Nick (sorry guys), the couple were spotted at the Mumbai airport hand-in-hand and created quite a stir in the country when they attended the Ambani engagement together. They also met Priyanka’s mom for dinner leading to the rumours of their engagement.
2017: Priyanka Chopra Conquers Hollywood
2017 marked a momentous year for Priyanka Chopra. The actress made her Hollywood debut, killed it in Quantico as always, and continued to make India proud worldwide. Here’s a look at the things she has done in 2017, can’t wait to see her do a good Bollywood movie now!
In January, it was reported that Priyanka Chopra will be attending the Golden Globes and of course she looked as gorgeous as ever. Rumours of her fallout with Deepika Padukone took a backseat when she posted a birthday wish for her on social media. At the Globes, PC hung out with Meryl Streep, Sofia Vergara and many others. She also won the award for Favourite Dramatic TV Actress at the People’s Choice Award, being the first Indian actress to do so. A new trailer of Baywatch dropped as well, where she looked brilliant as the badass villain of the film. Promos of her Koffee With Karan episode came out, showing us glimpses of how amazing it’s going to be. Priyanka also rocked her interview with Jimmy Kimmel and was her brilliant self at Live With Kelly. In the romance department, the superstar was linked with the very handsome Tom Hiddleston, but she denied that piece of gossip. Basically, she was all over American television and no one had any complaints!
Continuing her appearances in late night talk shows, Priyanka killed it on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (like that’s surprising) where she made pointed references to Donald Trump‘s problematic presidency. In February, she also attended Marc Jacobs’ show at the New York Fashion Week but it was her appearance at the Academy Awards for the second time that made heads turn. She also did tequila shots backstage (like she did the year before that on the red carpet) and hung out with cool people who work in Hollywood. Priyanka looked like a goddess at the awards and at the Vanity Fair after-party.
In March, Priyanka blessed our timelines with some adorable photos of her nieces. On International Women’s Day, she shared an incredible message to women all over the world, because she is the perfect role model for all the girls (not just the desi ones out there). Oh and after Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, she also played some Holi with Jimmy Fallon. PC also spoke about racism and her skin colour in various interviews, addressing the biases that come along with it. Her promotions for Baywatch were on in full swing and she attended various events across the globe, looking like a total bomb.
An old video of Shah Rukh Khan asking Priyanka Chopra if she’d marry him started going viral. SRK was one of the judges on the Miss India panel, where PC won the crown for the first runner-up. Priyanka shared an incredibly heartwarming video of her late father on her Instagram, it was really sweet. She also shared some cute photos of her pet dog Diana (who BTW has her own Instagram account). In April she returned to India and hung out with her Dil Dhadakne Do director Zoya Akhtar and co-star and close friend Ranveer Singh. Priyanka spoke at length about the gender bias that persists in Bollywood and also very classily shut down comparisons with Deepika Padukone who had made her Hollywood debut in the same year. While in India she bonded with her Fashion co-star Kangana Ranaut and revealed why she has stopped endorsing fairness creams. There were rumours that her American TV show Quantico was being scrapped, but that turned out to be false and the latest season premiered in 2018.
Priyanka Chopra proceeded to break the Internet in May at the Met Gala. The superstar pulled off an edgy look which got her featured in multiple ‘best dressed’ lists in the international media. Her look also gave birth to a lot of memes and funny tweets, but if your appearance doesn’t make a splash on the interwebz, then is it even worth it? PC also welcomed fellow Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif on Instagram. There were rumours of her dating pop star Nick Jonas, which she addressed, but there also another relationship she nearly confirmed – the one she had with Shah Rukh Khan! PC also went on to sign her second and third Hollywood projects. While handling her work and personal life like a boss, she also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi but she was trolled for wearing a dress. Priyanka responded to the social media hate in the best way she can.
After getting hate online for wearing a dress on her visit to the Prime Minister of India, Priyanka Chopra was trolled on social media again for posting selfies at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. She deleted those photos soon enough after getting some nasty comments. But apart from that little, blot, PC had a good month where she was chilling with Kendall Jenner & Nicole Kidman and holidaying in Prague. On her father’s fourth death anniversary, she posted a heartfelt note about him on Instagram.
Priyanka Chopra’s world domination continued, but questions about her marriage kept cropping up (because we are like this only). Her mother had the best response to such questions though. Photos from the sets of her third film leaked online as well. Apart from her shoots, PC kept in touch with her Indian friends by posting funny comments on their Instagram photo. Take the one she left on Ranveer Singh‘s photo! In July, Priyanka’s second Marathi film as a producer released and she looked stunning on the red carpet. She also went on a fun vacation and found time to produce a comedy series being developed by ABC. The cool part? The show will be based on Madhuri Dixit‘s life!
In August Priyanka revealed that her dream job was to be a maid when she was a kid. She was then spotted hanging out with Bryan Adams and chilled with Arpita Khan and Aayush Sharma in NYC. PC paid a flying visit to Mumbai where she casualllyyyy hung out with her pals at Marine Drive. She also featured in the Forbes list of the highest paid actors in India on no.7.
Priyanka looked like a bomb.com on the September cover of Vogue and rocked the Emmy Awards. In one of her candid moments, she revealed her disdain for fairness creams and how bad she felt while endorsing one. She was invited by UNICEF to take a trip to Jordan in order to help underprivileged refugee children from Syria. Of course, she got trolled for that too, but PC dealt with such comments with utmost grace. This wasn’t an easy month for her though. While promoting her next production venture – a Sikkimese film – Pahuna: The Little Visitors, she called Sikkim an ‘insurgency-hit area’ for which she had to face a lot of backlash. She later apologized for making those comments. She also made tonnes of money last year and holidayed with her girls. #Goals
In October, Priyanka was featured on the cover of Variety Magazine, wore a stunning Balmain dress and rocked a sheer bomber. But the most interesting bit was her calling an ex-boyfriend an ‘MF’, which well, means – motherfucker. Ooooh!
Priyanka Chopra gave a fun (and rare) about her personal life, where she said she loves playing (woot woot!) She also went all out on Halloween and celebrated Thanksgiving with her family in Los Angeles. In 2017, Manushi Chhillar won the Miss World crown, making her the first Indian to win the title after 17 years. The last winner was Priyanka, back in 2000 and she had the nicest advice for Manushi. The big news of the month was that she might probably be a bridesmaid at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as she’s good friends with the bride-to-be.
2016: Priyanka Chopra Goes Global
In 2016, Priyanka Chopra became the first South Asian actress to win The People’s Choice Award and made quite the splash all over Hollywood during the awards season. Here’s a gist of her 2016 (spoiler alert: it was brilliant because she’s brilliant).
January started on a good note for Priyanka as her ‘bitch please’ face went viral all over the internet! She then rocked the red carpet at the People’s Choice Award and became the first South Asian actress to win the coveted trophy. Her acceptance speech was all kinds of amazing and her friends back in India went all out on social media to congratulate her. PC also looked like a dream come true on the cover of an international magazine and turned producer by creating three movies in one year. The most interesting bit was the fact that she became the first actress to win a Filmfare award in five different categories.
Priyanka started February by reacting to the clip of her ‘bitch please’ face which went viral last month. She also made an appearance at the SAG award and looked as pretty as a rose. In Feb, it was announced that PC would be attending the Oscars and of course, we were all so excited! Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Reynolds had some really nice things to say about our desi girl too. PC was signed on by Marvel to lend her voice to the Muslim superhero Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel in the Marvel’s Avengers Academy game. She also made one of her first talk show appearances on late night TV by being one of the guests on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. It was in the month of Feb that Priyanka also signed her first Hollywood movie – Baywatch co-starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Effron. The actress also gave us a rare insight into her personal life when she spoke about her partner and chilled with her brother and her Quantico co-stars in Canada. PC had a blast at the Oscar pre-party and completely blew our minds at the main ceremony. She gave fun interviews and presented the Academy Award for Best Editing. She also looked like bomb.com at the Vanity Fair after-party!
More photos of Priyanka Chopra in Baywatch started doing the rounds on the Internet and she continued to spill secrets about what celebrities were up to at the Oscars. She also ruled social media when she decided to do tequila shots on the Oscars red carpet. PC responded to the racism she has faced in the United States and made a joke on the American president Donald Trump. Her appearance on Jimmy Fallon‘s show was well received and she totally looked like a million bucks! Priyanka and Alia Bhatt bonded on Twitter over bikini bodies and PC brought out her inner nerd by making a Harry Potter reference in a Vogue video. Despite being away from the country, the superstar didn’t miss the opportunity to play Holi and she was also awarded the Sexiest Eyes at the Victoria’s Secret “What Is Sexy?” award.
Priyanka Chopra’s former manager Prakash Jaju went on some sort of a Twitter rant where he said that there was a point when Priyanka was on the verge of committing suicide. Priyanka responded to these claims with a very strong statement. She also featured on the cover of TIME magazine where Dwayne Johnson wrote a wonderful tribute to her. PC spoke about credit being taken away from women and was invited to the White House Correspondents’ dinner along with Bradley Cooper (Obama’s last).
Priyanka graced the White House Correspondents’ dinner looking like THIS (stunning). She was busy shooting and having a blast with her Baywatch co-star Zac Effron and attended the Billboard Music Awards. She also hung out with Princess-to-be Meghan Markle and the ladies had biryani by the pool. Goals only. Being one of the first South Asian actresses to work as a leading lady in an American show, Priyanka has had her share of facing stereotypes and she has always been very vocal about crossing those barriers.
June started on a good note for the actress as she starred in a music video along with Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias and Christiano Ronaldo. Expanding her production plans, PC also put her money behind a Bhojpuri film but she criticized for this decision to back a “sleazy” movie. Priyanka turned up the heat (and how) on Maxim’s cover and went for a fun London vacation with her mom. Her armpits on the cover created some sort of a social media uproar, but she had the perfect response to that, as she usually does. Priyanka also agreed to perform at the IIFA awards and was paid a bomb for that.
July is PC’s birthday month and she obviously had a blast on the very special day. Talking, about celebrations, she also celebrated the American Independence Day with a superhot photo from Baywatch. She also gave a detailed interview to Film Companion and responded to tweets about the Internet finding her doppelgänger and had a fun Twitter conversation with Tanmay Bhat!
Priyanka began this month by sharing a throwback from her Miss World days and later a video of her eating a massive burger. How is this even fair? She spoke about her Hollywood debut Baywatch too, where she described her character as a billionaire bitch. Inside photos from her Marie Claire shoot started doing the rounds on the Internet soon enough and my god, the actress looked like perfection! While in New York, she also hung out with her cousin Parineeti Chopra and more Bollywood actors who were a part of the popular ‘Dream Team’ tour. She also recreated Britney Spears‘ iconic song Toxic along with Jodie Foster and other actresses because why not? In more news of PC kicking ass, it was rumoured that she was getting paid a lot of money to endorse a brand. Best!
PC slayed on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine and made a stunning appearance in GQ magazine, but the look that got the world talking was her outfit at the Emmy Awards. Her chemistry with Tom Hiddleston was the talk of the town as they presented an award together. Priyanka also admitted that she has been in a complicated relationship. At the Emmys’, PC hung out with Kit Harrington as well, making us all die with jealousy. She also made it to no. 8 in the list of the highest paid actresses in the world. In an interview, she also revealed that she doesn’t like watching her own love scenes. Later in the month she hung out with Sunny Leone and attended the New York fashion week.
A very hot scene of Priyanka and her Quantico co-star Jake McLaughlin went viral because my god, the scene could burn screens down! Priyanka bonded with Katrina Kaif when the latter visited New York, but the actress got in some trouble due to a controversial magazine cover she featured in. In better news, she became the first Bollywood celebrity to be featured in The Ellen DeGeneres Show and downed a tequila shot like a complete boss. Priyanka also openly criticized the ban on Pakistani actors and dispelled many myths about India at Chelsea Handler’s show.
Priyanka’s solo poster as the antagonist of Baywatch was finally released and she looked really, really good. She also rocked the cover of Hello Magazine and became the first Indian actor to join the list of more than 500 global LinkedIn Influencers. Priyanka also recorded a Marathi song for her production Ventilator and hung out with popular actress and Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle. During an interview on Andy Cohen‘s show Watch What Happens, PC couldn’t stop laughing after she was shown embarrassing videos of her earlier works in Bollywood.
The first trailer of Baywatch dropped and we were all so happy to PC be her badass self! In a series of interviews, she shared her thoughts on why male superstars don’t make it in Hollywood and the one question she hates answering. PC also featured in one Superwoman video and returned to Mumbai (which made people go completely nuts). We also did a list of reasons why she was the cool girl of 2016!
2015: Priyanka Chopra Makes Her Mark
Priyanka Chopra‘s 2015 was a fun-filled one. She made her debut on American television (making her the first South Asian actress to headline a mainstream American TV show) with her Quantico and gave a stellar performance in the year’s biggest hit Bajirao Mastani. Here’s a list of the great things she did in 2015!
In January, Priyanka Chopra got together with Katy Perry, Sonu Nigam, Idris Elba and many more global celebrities to recreate John Lennon’s Imagine for UNICEF. Priyanka was spotted sharing warm vibes with former boyfriend Shahid Kapoor at an award’s function. The actress, unfortunately, met with an accident in the Maldives, but she also made a lot of money after signing Quantico.
PC answered some cool questions on Twitter (where she revealed her biggest fear amongst other things). She also made her Bollywood singing debut with Dil Dhadakne Do where she and Anushka Sharma lip-synced to her voice. Priyanka also attended a fun pre-Grammy’s party in LA.
In March, a smoking hot Priyanka Chopra featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine. In an interesting interview, she spoke about one-sided love and relationships. Her Fashion co-star Kangana Ranaut addressed a misunderstanding they had but eventually made up and remain good friends.
Priyanka returned to Mumbai in April after shooting for Quantico in New York and looked like a total rockstar when she landed at the Mumbai airport. Meanwhile, our crush on Priyanka Chopra intensified further and we wrote an article on PC looking faaaaaine in swimsuits! Talking about looking great, her first look from Dil Dhadakne Do was out and my god, she looked good. The entire cast of the movie got along like a house on fire and that was evident from all their party photos. Apart from that, PC and Deepika Padukone were also bonding on the sets of Bajirao Mastani, especially during the shoot of their iconic song Pinga.
Priyanka Chopra and the cast of Dil Dhadakne Do went brunching and the first poster and trailer of her American show Quantico dropped in the month of May. She created a flutter at the ABC Upfronts where she partied with Ellen Pompeo and Kerry Washington (the stars of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal respectively). PC also took to Twitter to share some girl love to her fellow Bollywood superstars Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut. While the excitement for Quantico’s premiere was gaining heat, PC’s sex scene with her co-star went viral. She addressed that and also spoke at length about being a victim of racism in the United States.
In June, the cast of Dil Dhadakne Do left for Malaysia to attend the 2015 IIFA awards for the premiere of their film. The actress posted a video from there as she got nostalgic about her Don days and also shared a throwback photo with her gorgeous cousin Parineeti Chopra. While rumours of Priyanka and Deepika Padukone‘s “fall-out” started doing the rounds, PC rubbished them all by revealing how close they actually are. We also wrote about PC’s sunglasses addiction.
The first look of Bajirao Mastani was released and everyone was so excited. We love Priyanka so much, we wrote a list of 10 literary characters she should totally play on the big screen. PC took time off her Quantico schedule and partied with her close friends in Mumbai on her birthday. She also did a fun Twitter chat where she revealed a lot about herself (like her favourite food is khichdi and achaar) and addressed the box-office clash between Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani.
In August, Priyanka featured in TIME magazine, looking unrecognizable (and hot) AF! In an interview to Filmfare she revealed that her relationship status is ‘ambiguous’. Posters of the stunning actress were splashed all over New York from Times Square billboards to the city buses as promotions for Quantico began in full swing. PC was ranked number 1 on The Hollywood Reporter‘s list of actors to watch out for. Best girl!
Priyanka’s debut TV show Quantico premiered in the United States and all her friends in Bollywood from Anushka to Deepika to Preity Zinta wished her luck! Sonakshi Sinha even made a video for PC. Sonam and Priyanka also supported Sonakshi on Twitter when the latter lashed out trolls. It’s all about #girllove you guys! Priyanka also revealed that she and Deepika would often discuss the wage gap problem in the world on the sets of Bajirao Mastani. PC also made an appearance at Jimmy Kimmel‘s show and the first episode of Quantico garnered 7.1 million views. Salman Khan also tweeted about her show, asking when it’ll air. The first poster of her Bollywood movie – Jai Gangajal also released this month.
In October, Priyanka spoke at length about her awkward sex scenes in Quantico while another Indian origin badass woman IISuperwomanII said how proud she was of PC. Her former secretary Prakash Jaju went on a full-blown Twitter rant against her making PC’s former boyfriend Aseem Merchant distance himself from him.
The first look of Priyanka’s and Deepika’s look from Bajirao Mastani was revealed and so was the first look of their song together – Pinga. November was all about Bajirao Mastani as the first trailer of the film dropped and everyone was amazed. PC returned to India to promote the film. She also responded to the problems the Peshwa family had with the film in a very graceful way.
In December, we wrote about how Pinga is basically a roti-making tutorial (hehehe). Priyanka gave a pretty kickass reply to the protests surrounding Bajirao Mastani‘s release. Her romantic song with Ranveer Singh in the movie was a recreation of Albela Sajan from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Ranveer, Priyanka and Deepika gave their career-best performances in the film. Deepika also spoke about how hooked she is to Priyanka’s show Quantico. After Bajirao and Quantico, PC stunned us all with the trailer of her movie Jai Gangajal. She also went on record to condemn the release of the juvenile rapist in the Nirbhaya case.
