5. Bajirao Mastani (2015):
Bajirao Mastani gives an account of the romance between the Maratha general, Baji Rao I, and Mastani, princess of Bundelkhand. Priyanka Chopra plays a supporting character of Kashibai, a widow, but she’s great in the role and was bestowed with the Best Supporting Actor award at the 61st Filmfare Awards.
4. Don (2006):
Vijay (Shah Rukh Khan) is recruited by a police officer to masquerade as his lookalike Don, the leader of an international gang of smugglers. Things go wrong when the officer is killed and Vijay is left to fend for himself. Priyanka Chopra plays Roma in this movie and she received critical acclaim for her role. The film was a commercial hit.
3. Fashion (2008):
A small-town girl (Priyanka Chopra) finally realizes her dream of becoming a famous supermodel but soon finds out that there's a price for her glamorous new life. Priyanka Chopra does incredible justice to this role as an ambitious supermodel who experiences the highs and lows of the Indian fashion industry.
2. Barfi (2012):
Three young people learn that love can neither be defined nor contained by society's definition of normal and abnormal. It’s a wonderful film and one of the highlights of Priyanka Chopra’s Bollywood career.
1. Kaminey (2009):
Kaminey sees the desperate lives of two estranged twin brothers converge over missing drugs, politics, racial prejudice, corrupt cops, and unplanned pregnancy. It is undoubtedly, one of the best movies of Priyanka Chopra's career. Priyanka plays a political goon’s sister who is feisty, tough and ready for a fight, refusing to be forced into marriage and determined to protect her lover whose baby she carries, and boy is she good at it!
Priyanka went on to starring in a television series called Quantico, in her first stint in Hollywood. She is very vocal about gender equality, the gender pay gap, and feminism and was appointed as the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 2016.
We, at HNH Style, would like to wish Priyanka a very happy birthday!
