Priyanka Chopra was brought up Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh. She was the favourite in the family and grew up in the affection and warmth showered on her by her parents, grand parents and other relatives.

Her schooling was in Lucknow and the institutions that she studied were La Martini re Girls College in Lucknow, Maria Goretti College in Bareilly and completed studies in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. She wanted to be a Software Engineer or a Criminal Psychologist.

Priyanka is a good singer and occasionally writes poetry and short stories. She didn’t had much aspiration for modeling or ever dreamed of competing in beauty contests, but her parents, without Priyanka’s knowledge, sent photos of her to the Femina Miss India pageant. On competing, Priyanka won the Femina Miss India-World title and an opportunity to represent her country for the Miss World competition.

In the Miss World competition, the judges were so impressed by Priyanka Chopra’s performance that they omitted the mistake that she made during the last round and she was adjudged winner of the Miss World 2000 title. She was asked which living woman she admires most, in the finals, and Priyanka replied “Mother Theresa”, but at that time Mother Theresa had deceased. But that was the only mistake she made throughout the tough competition.

Then Miss Universe Lara Dutta also debuted with Priyanka Chopra. Priyanka won most Promising newcomer for Andaaz from Star Screen and Filmfare. Her Villainous role in Aitraaz won her many awards and accolades. She hasn’t had to look back since then. Her Mujhse Shaadi Karogi with Salman Khan was a hit.

Krrish, the film in which Hrithik Roshan plays a super hero, is her biggest movie so far and it is one of the biggest hits of all time for Hindi film industry too. The film fetched her international recognition and currently she is being considered for the Hollywood film Wonder Woman.
