It is Priyanka Chopra’s birthday today! The renowned actress is widely recognised on a global level owing to her power-packed performances in Bollywood and Hollywood industries both.
One of the lesser-known facts about the star is that before entering the industry, she initially wanted to explore her career towards the field of aerospace engineering. She, however, joined the Indian film industry after winning many pageant competitions, including 2000’s Miss World.

#TBT Miss World at 18! The turn of the millennium…the year 2000! Wow. It feels like just yesterday I was living this dream. Now, almost 20 years later, my enthusiasm for changing the status quo remains as strong and is at the core of everything I do. I truly believe girls have the power to bring about change if they get the opportunities they deserve. #strivehigher #dreambig
She earned a name for herself through films like ‘Aitraaz’, ‘Krrish’, ‘Don’ and so on. It was in 2008 that the actress had a breakthrough and received critical acclaim for her role as Meghna Mathur, in the film ‘Fashion’, which revolved around the rise and fall of models within the fashion industry. Soon she delivered power-packed performances in many other films like ‘7 Khoon Maaf’, ‘Barfi!’, and ‘Mary Kom’.

In the year 2015, Chopra ventured into the Hollywood industry and bagged the lead role as Alex Parrish in the American Thriller Drama, ‘Quantico’. It was indeed a pathbreaking moment for her as she became the first woman from South Asia to play the main role in an American show. The actress later starred in Hollywood films as well such as, ‘Baywatch’ and ‘Isn’t It Romantic?’
She definitely is one of the few people from Bollywood who has worked towards global domination like no other, so here’s to the diva of smashing stereotypes, ‘Happy Birthday Priyanka Chopra!’
On the occasion of her 38th birthday, many celebrities from Bollywood wished the star.
Kareena Kapoor Khan took over her Instagram to upload a stunning picture of both of them while writing, “Happy birthday @priyankachopra… May you continue to inspire the world ❤❤❤💯💯💯🎈🎈🎈 Hugs from across the globe…”
