15 years ago, a dainty Indian beauty was crowned Miss World and while most people thought that she would become yet another model and then disappear, she proved everyone wrong. We’re talking about Priyanka Chopra, who took home the Miss World title in 2000 and then came back to take Bollywood, Hollywood and the international music industry by storm.
We’re loving her kick-ass avatar in Quantico. The lady leaves us awestruck each time she appears as Alex Parrish.
And who can forget Exotic? Beyonce, please step aside.
Let’s take a look at PC roles that we just can’t get over. It was a tough choice to make, we’re not going to lie.
Priyanka’s portrayal of the adorable Jiya was so spot-on that she left the critics pleasantly surprised and took home the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. She was also nominated for the Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award.
Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004)
When a newbie manages to outshine bigwigs like Akshay and Salman, you know that she is special and here to stay.
One of the most powerful, awe-inspiring and challenging roles that a Bollywood actress has taken on – and completely rocked. No wonder PC bagged the Filmfare Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role for this.
Most of us thought that Priyanka is playing a glam doll in the film, but we were so wrong!
Our favourite jungli billi who kicked some serious ass, looked absolutely gorgeous and made us want to take up street-fighting as a hobby.
You know how we usually discuss who could’ve played a particular role better? We can think of absolutely no one who could’ve pulled off a Meghna Mathur quite like PC.
The Desi Girl appeared in a bikini and took our breath away, and then she decided to rock a saree with equal panache. Too much hotness!
What’s Your Rashee (2009)
How many actresses can you think of who played 12 very different roles in a single film? We rest our case.

By now, even the harshest of critics had acknowledged that PC is an absolute powerhouse of talent and can manage anything that is thrown at her. This film is, in a word, spectacular, all thanks to Priyanka.
Anyone who says that Barfi! is a Ranbir Kapoor film needs to watch it again and focus all attention on Priyanka. They’ll definitely change their mind.
We’re super excited now and can’t wait to see her play Kashibai in Bajirao Mastani!
