Priyanka Chopra is an Indian film actress and singer who has emerged as one of the most popular and high-profile celebrities in India. Born to physician parents, she was schooled in different cities across India until the age of 13, when she was sent to the United States.
In America, besides academics, she also volunteered for dancing and singing activities, but desired to become an engineer or psychologist rather than a performer. She took part in the Femina Miss India contest and was selected to represent India in the Miss World pageant, where she was crowned ‘Miss World 2000’.
After winning the beauty pageant, she left her studies midway to join the film industry. Although she started her career with a Tamil film ‘Thamizan’ it was not long before she made her debut in Bollywood as the second lead in the 2003 film ‘The Hero’. Along with acting, she has also made a mark as an international singer with tracks such as ‘In My City’ and ‘Exotic’
As her father was in army, he frequently got transferred. As a result, Priyanka spent her childhood in cities such as Delhi, Pune, Lucknow, Bareilly, and Ladakh. She received her education from several schools including La Martiniere Girls’ School, Lucknow and St. Maria Goretti College, Bareilly.
