Priyanka Chopra – From Miss world To Fairy Queen Of Bollywood

Updated on January 27, 2014

On 18th of July 1982 Dr. Ashoke Chopra and Dr. Madhu Chopra were blessed with a cute baby girl at Bareilly Cantonment Hospital of Uttar Pradesh. Entire staff of the hospital was happy because Dr. Ashoke and Dr. Madhu were their colleagues and they all loved them. But nobody ever dreamed that day that the little angel, who has just born, will be crowned as Miss World and also will rein Bollywood one day!

Her grandmother gave her the name Mithu, but Mithu herself used to pronounce her name as Mimi when she was just learning to speak. From that time her parents also started calling her by the name Mimi. The name Priyanka was given by a saint, when her grandmother took her to the saint for blessing.

Priyanks’s father Dr. Ashoke Chopra and her mother Dr. Madhu were army doctors. They were very popular among their colleagues and friends. Ashoke was from Ambala, he was a Panjabi Hindu. Madhu was from Bihar but born and brought at Dehradun.

Parents of priyanka have a good cultural background, Dr Ashoke is a good musician, having expertise in both vocal and instrument and Dr. Madhu got talent in dancing and indoor games. Priyank was blessed with these cultural influences by heredity.

Her family had to move frequently due to transfer. She studied at La Martiniere Girls' College in Lucknow, as a young girl and later went to her uncle at United States, where she was an excellent student at Newton North High School, in Newton, Massachusetts and John F. Kennedy High School (Cedar Rapids) in Iowa. She was a brilliant student at US but came back to India after passing eleventh standard and finished 12th standard in Bareilly. She began college at Jai Hind College in Mumbai but left after winning the Miss World pageant. She is a practicing Hindu and attributes her luck to her devotions: she wears a bracelet, which reads 'Om Namoh Shivay', as a good-luck charm.

Priyanka’s parents might be an example in the area of parental support! When she was reluctant to go for further study, her parents took her to Mumbai and struggled to get her a chance in the Bollywood Hindi movie. Although she got a few chances but her fortune really got brightened after she achieved the Miss World title in the year 2000.

Priyanka became an actress from the year 2001. She first acted in a Tamil film Thamizhan (2002) and since then has acted in many Bollywood films. Her first Hindi film was the big budget The Hero: Love Story of a Spy (2003) which was a flop. She became more known from her film Andaaz (2003) which was a hit, for which she won her first Filmfare Award.

Today she has thousands of fans but many of them do not know that she is a beautiful singer. In her first Tamil film she sang a duet song the hero of the film Vijay Babu and the song was a super hit!

      I'm a fan of Priyanka Chopra, too! Bollywood movies are rare here in the Philippines. But with the influence of my Indian friends, I am appreciating the way Indian films are made. Actings are intense, too and actors and actresses are gorgeous, as well!
