Her cousin is actress Parineeti Chopra.[6][7] Her father’s job required the family to frequently relocate from one city to another during her schooling days. In an interview with Daily News and Analysis, Chopra said that she did not mind travelling regularly and changing schools. She welcomed it as a new experience and a way to discover the multicultural Indian society.[8] Places where she lived as a child include Jamshedpur, Delhi, Pune, Lucknow, Bareilly, Ladakh, Chandigarh and Ambala.[9] She considers Bareilly as her home-town, and still maintains strong connections there.[10]

Chopra studied at La Martiniere Girls’ School in Lucknow and St. Maria Goretti College in Bareilly.[11][12][13] She subsequently re-located to the U.S. where she attended schools in Newton, Massachusetts and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.[14] Chopra later recalled, “It was a huge culture shock for me when I went to study for three years in Boston at the age of 13.”[15] While in Boston, she participated in several theatre productions, and studied Western classical music, chorus and choir singing, and Kathak dance.[16] Chopra returned to India and finished her high school education at Army Public School in Bareilly.[17] During this period she won a local beauty pageant called “May Queen”.[18] She had enrolled in college to study either engineering or psychology, but discontinued after winning the Miss World pageant.[11][18]

Acting career

Debut and breakthrough (2002–03)

Priyanka Chopra made her acting debut in the 2002 Tamil film Thamizhan as the love interest of the protagonist played by Vijay. The film was praised for its wit and dialogues, although the depth of Chopra’s character was seen as lacking.[24][25] In 2003, she made her Bollywood film debut, opposite Sunny Deol and Preity Zinta in Anil Sharma’s The Hero: Love Story of a Spy. Her acting as the second female lead in the film was positively noted by critics.[2] Derek Elley of Variety wrote, “Mega-looker Chopra (Miss World 2000) makes a solid screen debut as a modern urban miss.”[26] The film was one of the highest grossing films of that year in Bollywood and received mixed reviews from critics.[27][28] Later that year she appeared in Raj Kanwar’s Andaaz, alongside Akshay Kumar and Lara Dutta. The film was a major success at the box office.[27] Her performance in the film earned her a Filmfare Best Female Debut Award[29] and a nomination for Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award.[30] Ashish Magotra writing for Rediff.com said of her role, “Priyanka Chopra alone clicks with the audience, thanks to her skimpy outfits.”[31]

Early success and setbacks (2004–07)

Chopra’s first three releases in 2004—Plan, Kismat, and Asambhav—performed poorly at the box office.[32][33] Later that year she starred opposite Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar in David Dhawan’s romantic comedy Mujhse Shaadi Karogi. The film was a major commercial success with worldwide gross earnings of over INR56 crore (US$10.19 million) and emerged as the third-highest grossing film of the year.[34][32] She then starred in Abbas-Mustan’s thriller Aitraaz alongside Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor. It was her first negative role, and although the film was a moderate success at the Indian box-office,[32] her performance was critically acclaimed.[35]Film critic Subhash K. Jha noted, “A star is born! As the predatory social-climbing seductress who can go to any length to satiate her lust for life, Priyanka Chopra rocks the scene like never before. The film is undoubtedly a triumph for Priyanka Chopra. With half a smile, a twitch of her lip and a movement of her eyebrow she seems to slip into her man-eater’s role with captivating ease”.[36] She earned aFilmfare Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role (also known as the Best Villain Award),[37] becoming the second and last female actor to win the award after Kajol (the category has been retired since 2008). She also received a second nomination for Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award for the role.[38]

In 2005, Chopra appeared in six films. Three of them—Blackmail, Karam and Yakeen—were commercially unsuccessful in India.[39]Her performance in the latter was generally well received. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama wrote that Chopra “is bound to win laurels yet again, after Aitraaz. This role may’ve been unacceptable to a lot many actors who choose not to experiment with their goody-goody image, but Priyanka is an exception. The actor is emerging as one of the finest talents in these fast-changing times.[40][41] She then starred in Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s family drama Waqt: The Race Against Time alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar andShefali Shah. The film was a moderate box-office success.[39] While shooting for the Holi song “Do Me a Favour”, Chopra got drenched and went to her van to change, where she stepped on a loose wire and almost got electrocuted. Fortunately, she recovered and resumed shooting the next day.[42]

Her next release was Suneel Darshan’s love triangle, Barsaat, co-starring Bobby Deol and Bipasha Basu. The film was a critical failure[43] and emerged as below average grosser at the box office.[39] Later that year, Rohan Sippy cast her alongside Abhishek Bachchan, Ritesh Deshmukh and Nana Patekar in the comedy Bluffmaster!, loosely adapted from the 2000 Argentinian film Nine Queens.[44] The film was a moderate commercial success.[39] Chopra played the role of Simran Saxena (Bachchan’s love interest). According to film critic Subhash K. Jha, “Chopra has little to do. But she does it with eye-catching aplomb.”[45]

In 2006, Chopra starred in Rakesh Roshan’s Krrish, a sequel to the 2004 science-fiction film Koi… Mil Gaya. Co-starring with Hrithik Roshan, Rekha and Naseeruddin Shah, Chopra played the role of Priya, a young TV journalist. The film was a major box-office success, earning INR117 crore (US$21.29 million) worldwide.[46] It was also the second most popular film of the year.[47] She next featured inDharmesh Darshan’s romantic comedy, Aap Ki Khatir, the Hindi adaptation of the 2005 Hollywood release The Wedding Date.[48] Co-starring alongside Akshaye Khanna, Ameesha Patel and Dino Morea, Chopra played Anu (a London based Non-resident Indian and Khanna’s love interest). The film was a commercial failure in India.[48] Her final release of 2006 was Farhan Akhtar’s action-thriller Don, a remake of the 1978 film of the same name, alongside Shahrukh Khan. Upon release, the film was declared a box-office success in India and overseas, with revenues of over INR105 crore (US$19.11 million).[46][47] Chopra portrayed Roma, a character famously played byZeenat Aman in the original film. She underwent special martial arts training for her role in the movie and performed all the stunts herself.[49] Raja Sen of Rediff.com opined that Chopra “is the film’s big surprise. Stepping into Zeenat Aman’s shoes is a tough ask, but she doesn’t really waste time pretending to be the stunner’s successor. Chopra handles her role with efficiency, looking every bit the competent woman of action – and a ravishing babe who fills out a skintight white jumpsuit deliciously.”[50] Don was later screened at the International Film Festival of Marrakech in Morocco, along with its sequel in 2012.[51]

In 2007, she appeared in Nikhil Advani’s ensemble piece Salaam-e-Ishq: A Tribute to Love. Despite a promising opening, the movie was a financial failure.[52] Chopra was criticized for her performance in the film, with Lidia Ostepeev of Planet Bollywood calling it “forced” and “overly exaggerated”.[53] Her next release, the much-delayed Big Brother, also failed at the box-office.[54]

Critical success (2008–11)

In 2008, Chopra acted in six films. Her first four films—Love Story 2050, God Tussi Great Ho, Chamku and Drona—were critical and commercial failures.[55] During this time, Chopra received mixed to negative reviews for her performances.[56][57][58] That would all change after Chopra featured in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion, a drama revolving around the fashion industry as seen through Chopra’s viewpoint as the protagonist Meghna Mathur, an ambitious model. The film and her performance were appreciated by the critics, earning her several awards for Best Actress including the National Film Award for Best Actress,[59][60][61] the Filmfare Award for Best Actress,[62] the IIFA Award for Best Actress,[63] and the Screen Award for Best Actress.[64] Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN wrote, “Priyanka Chopra turns in a respectable performance, one that will inevitably go down as her best.”[65] Fashion was later called her coming-of-age film, and a turning point in her career.[66] Her final release of the year was Tarun Mansukhani’s directorial debut Dostanawith Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham. Produced by Dharma Productions, the film was a financial success with a worldwide revenue of over INR86 crore (US$15.65 million)[34] Chopra received positive reviews for her performance and her look in the film.[67] Khalid Mohammed found her “pretty convincing”;[68] Gaurav Malani of Indiatimes observed, “Priyanka Chopra looks gorgeous and is perfectly poised in her performance”.[69]

He further stated, “She’s so much in sync with her character… [and] gets the Maharashtrian accent perfect”.[71][72] Her work in the film brought her several awards and nominations including a second Filmfare Award for Best Actress nomination[73] and a second consecutive Apsara Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role afterFashion.[74][75] She subsequently appeared in Ashutosh Gowariker’s romantic comedy What’s Your Raashee?, a film for which Chopra was reportedly being considered for inclusion in the Guinness World Records book for being the first actress in cinema history to portray 12 distinct characters in one film.[76] Reaction to the film was lukewarm,[77][78] but Chopra’s performance was appreciated by the critics[79] Sukanya Verma in a review for Rediff.com wrote, “Priyanka Chopra transforms into 12 new skins with astonishing distinction, voice and spirit. The actress reinvents herself into this unique individual every single time ranging from batty, bashful and boisterous. This is simply her show.”[80] Chopra was working so hard shooting this and other films, travelling for endorsements, performing at live shows, including at the Miss India pageant, that she passed out and was admitted to the hospital during filming.[81]

 

In 2010, Chopra featured in Jugal Hansraj’s romantic comedy Pyaar Impossible! oppositeUday Chopra, where she portrayed the role of Alisha Merchant, a beautiful college girl who eventually falls in love with a nerdy boy. The film was a commercial and critical failure.[82]Later that year, she co-starred with Ranbir Kapoor in Siddharth Anand’s romantic comedy,Anjaana Anjaani. A moderate commercial success,[82] the film and her performance generated mixed response; Sarita Tanwar of Mid Day commented, “Priyanka Chopra is at her casual and spontaneous best.

Chopra’s first release of 2011 was Vishal Bhardwaj’s black comedy 7 Khoon Maaf. The film, based on Ruskin Bond’s short story Susanna’s Seven Husbands saw Chopra portray the role of Susanna Anna-Marie Johannes, an Anglo-Indian woman who murders her seven husbands in an unending quest for love. 7 Khoon Maaf premiered at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival.[85] The film was a commercial failure and received mixed response from the critics, but Chopra’s performance was praised. Nikhat Kazmi of The Times of India remarked, “7 Khoon Maaf would undoubtedly end up as a milestone in Priyanka Chopra’s career graph. The actor displays exquisite command over a complex character that is definitely a first in Indian cinema.”[86][87] Chopra’s performance eventually earned the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress[88] and a third Filmfare Award for Best Actress nomination.[89]

Her next release was Farhan Akhtar’s action-thriller Don 2, a sequel to the 2006 action thriller Don. Upon release, the film received mixed reviews, both in India[90] and overseas.[91] Chopra reprised her role of Roma, which received positive feedback from foreign critics. According to The Express Tribune, “Chopra pulls of her role with aplomb and seems to be the perfect choice for an action heroine. As you watch her effortlessly beat up some thugs in the movie, you come to the realisation that she may be the first proper female action hero in Bollywood.”[92] A review carried by Divanee Magazine mentioned that Chopra surprises with a demeanor like that of Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft.[93] The film was a major success in India and a blockbuster overseas, earning over INR206 crore (US$37.49 million)worldwide.[46] It went on to break multiple box-office records in India and overseas, including the highest grossing Bollywood movie overseas in 2011.[94] Don 2 was showcased at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival[95] and the 2012 International Film Festival of Marrakech in Morocco.[51]

Recent work (2012–present)

In 2012, Chopra became the first mainstream Bollywood actor to be signed by Creative Artists Agency (CAA), a prominent entertainment and sports agency headquartered in Los Angeles. She said, “This is a great follow-up [after the Universal Music Group/Desi Hits! signing]. Basically, I am an actor so it did make sense to have representation in terms of movies or entertainment in any way”.[96]

Chopra’s first release of year was Karan Malhotra’s directorial debut Agneepath alongside Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt and Rishi Kapoor. Produced by Dharma Productions, the action drama is a remake of the 1990 classic of the same name. Upon release, the film broke the highest opening day collections record at the time and became a critical and commercial success with a worldwide gross of INR193 crore (US$35.13 million).[46][97] Chopra’s lehenga caught fire, while shooting for an elaborate Ganpati festival song called “Deva Shree Ganesha”.[98] Her performance as Kaali Gawde (a loquacious girl and Roshan’s love interest) was appreciated by most critics, such as Mayank Shekhar, who noted that she stood out in a male-centric movie.[99][100] The film was later screened at the International Film Festival of Marrakech in Morocco.[101] She followed the success of Agneepath with Kunal Kohli’s Teri Meri Kahaani, a love story set in three different eras; co-starring Shahid Kapoor. The film opened to mixed reactions from critics, however Chopra’s performance was generally well received. Sonia Chopra of Sify wrote, “Priyanka delivers a superb performance easily slipping in-and-out of the layered characters with dexterity.”[102][103] The film failed to do well at the Indian box office, although was a moderate success in the overseas markets.[104]

Chopra’s next appearance was in Anurag Basu’s Barfi! alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz. She was cast as Jhilmil Chatterjee, an autistic girl who falls in love with a deaf and mute boy. While preparing for her role, Chopra visited several mental institutions and spent time with autistic people. She said, “I had to research a little for the role because in India awareness about a condition such as autism is very low.”[105] The film opened to major critical acclaim[106] and was a major commercial success, earning INR106 crore (US$19.29 million) domestically.[107][108] Chopra received unanimous praise for her portrayal, which several reviewers regarded as her best performance to date.[109] TheIndo-Asian News Service review declared, “Priyanka Chopra as the autistic Jhilmil steals the show from Ranbir, if that’s possible. Her inherent glamorous personality simply disappears into her character. We don’t see the actress on screen at all! We see only Jhilmil who reminds us in a very pleasant way of Sridevi in Sadma. This is one of the most flawless interpretations of a physical-psychological disability seen on celluloid.”[110] The film was screened at the Busan International Film Festival,[111] Marrakech International Film Festival[51] and was chosen as India’s official entry to the Oscars for the 85th Academy Awards.[112]

If we do not protect our environment our future will be dark.” Model-actor Milind Soman, politicians, environmental organizations, and school children joined her in the effort.[176] Chopra adopted a tigress named Durga at the Birsa biological park for the year 2011–12, and then a lioness named Sundari for 2012–13 from the same zoo. She sent a sum of INR2 lakh (US$3,600) to the zoo authorities for the same.[177] In July 2012, Chopra walked for designer Manish Malhotra and Shaina NC’s charity fashion show for NGO Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA) along with other celebrities likeAyushmann Khurrana to spread awareness about cancer.[178] Chopra pledged to donate her organs after death and promote organ donation as the Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF. During her father’s liver illness treatment at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), she learned about the institution’s organ transplant programs.[179] She was invited to be the keynote speaker along with University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Thomas Starzl, M.D., Ph.D., at the university’s Bollywood themed 20th anniversary celebration of its Liver Transplant Program in October 2012, held in New York.[180]

Public image and personal life

Chopra is considered one of the most popular Bollywood celebrities in India.[181] She also has a reputation as one of the most desirable women in India, and has been described as a sex symbol and a style icon in India.[160][182][183] Designers Falguni and Shane Peacock noted, “She is comfortable in her own skin and looks ravishing in whatever she wears, be it a bikini, short or long dress or even a saree.”[184] Chopra’s figure, eye colour, and especially her “bee-stung” lips have been cited by the media as her characteristic distinctive physical features.[185] She is often referred to by the nickname “Piggy Chops”, which was given to her by co-stars on the set of the film Bluffmaster! in 2005.[186] Chopra does not come from a film background, and announces herself as a self-made woman.[187]In an interview with The Express Tribune she explained that her journey has been a learning experience as she came into the film industry without knowing anyone.[188]

She often ranks high on lists of most powerful, popular, or attractive Indian celebrities. In 2006, and again in 2012, the UK magazineEastern Eye ranked her first on their list of “World’s Sexiest Asian Women”[189][190][191] and also featured in the list among top three for 2007–11.[192][193][194][195] Chopra occupied the top slot in Rediff.com’s annual listing of “Bollywood’s Best Actress” in 2009[196] and also featured in the list for the years 2005, 2006 and 2008.[197][198][199] In 2009 she was ranked by Rediff.com as the third most powerful actress in India.[200] In 2011, she placed fifth on Rediff’s list of “Top 10 Actresses of 2000–2010″.[201] She also ranked third inThe Times of India’s 50 most desirable women of 2010,[202] and ranked fourth the next year.[203] In 2011, she was declared by Peopleas “India’s Best Dressed Woman of the year”[183] and Maxim named her the “Hottest Girl of the year”.[204] In 2012, Chopra was declared as the Topmost influential Indian in the social media circuit by a survey conducted by Pinstorm India.[205]

Chopra has said that she is very close to her family and is grateful for what her family has sacrificed for her, referring to the fact that her mother, who was an established gynaecologist in Bareily, gave up her career to help Chopra with her ambitions.[187][206] Her equation with her family members have always been Chopra’s top priority, especially that with her younger brother Siddharth.[207] Although known for her media friendly attitude, Chopra has always been evasive about her personal life. Concerning her online presence on Twitter she said, “One thing that I haven’t done and never will is talking about my personal life.”[208] However, she has maintained that when there is an announcement worth making, she will indeed be loquacious about it.[209] Her personal website, iampriyankachopra.com, went live in August 2010.[210] She lives with her family and dog named Brando.[211][212]

She also got her own custom-designed shoes from the Ferragamo house. With this honour, Chopra joined several Hollywood celebrities.[216] She received the Trailblazer Award from the South Asians in Media, Marketing and Entertainment Association “for her blazing trails in the U.S. for Indian entertainers as the first Bollywood actor to win a major record deal in the U.S., and her ongoing commitment and passion for continuous creative/artistic/personal achievement.”[217]
