Priyanka Chopra Biography
Priyanka was born in Jamshedpur and is fondly known as Mimi. Her father is Capt. Dr. Ashok Chopra and her mother is Dr. Madhu Chopra. She has a younger brother, Siddharth. Her father was in the army and thus her family moved quite frequently. She studied at the La Martiniere Girl’s School in Lucknow before re-locating to the United States of America. While there, she studied at the Newton North High School in Massachusetts and later in North Delta Senior Secondary School in North Delta. On returning back to India, she continued her schooling in the Army School at Bareilly. She began college at Jai Hind College in Mumbai but left after winning the Miss India World title. She went on to bring home the Miss World crown in 2000, becoming one of the five Indians to have won that title.
In 2005, Priyanka starred in six films. Her four films, Blackmail, Karam, Yakeen and Barsaat failed to do well at the box-office. But her other two releases, Waqt: The Race Against Time and Bluffmaster did decent business. In 2006, Chopra starred in two of the most successful films of the year, Krrish and Don. Her consequent releases in 2007, Salaam-e-Ishq and Big Brother, were flops.
She wowed the audience in What’s Your Raashee?, where she was seen in twelve different looks, each representing a zodiac sign. In Kaminey, she did justice to her role as Sweety and was seen completely transformed into a Marathi girl. In 2010, Chopra appeared in Pyaar Impossible and later in Anjaana Anjaani opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
