Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra (; born 18 July 1982) is an Indian actress, singer and songwriter. She was born to parents who were both army physicians. Due to their frequent reassignments, she grew up in many different cities in India, as well as spending a few years in the United States. Before starting her acting career, she gained fame after winning the Miss India and Miss World titles in 2000. During her career, Chopra has received one National Film Award for Best Actress, and Filmfare Awards in four distinct categories.

Making her acting debut with the 2002 Telugu film Apuroopam, Chopra later made her Bollywood debut with The Hero in 2003. She followed that with the hit Andaaz, for which she won a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. She subsequently earned critical acclaim for her performance in Aitraaz (2004), and appeared in the commercially successful projects Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004), Krrish (2006) and Don (2006). The year 2008 marked the beginning of a new phase in Chopra's career, as her portrayal of a troubled model in the film Fashion earned her the National Film Award for Best Actress and the Filmfare Award for Best Actress. She was later noted for her performances in Kaminey (2009), What's Your Raashee? (2009), 7 Khoon Maaf (2011), which garnered her the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress, and for Barfi! (2012). Having done so, Chopra established herself as one of the leading contemporary actresses in Bollywood.

Besides acting in films, Chopra has performed on television and stage shows. She has written columns in national Indian newspapers, and is active in charity work. She is regarded as one of most popular and attractive celebrities in India, and has many endorsement deals. In 2011, she signed a recording agreement with Universal Music Group and DesiHits to release her first music album. The first single, "In My City", was released in September 2012.
