Facts About Priyanka Chopra:
Before we wrap up, here’s a bunch of fun facts about your favorite actress.
Everyone suffers from some insecurity or the other during teen years. Priyanka hated her lips because, to her, they were too big. She wasn’t very happy about her eyebrows either as she considered them to be too bushy. She hated her hair too. We wonder how this former Miss World feels about herself now.
More than often we have heard the media and fans call her Piggy Chops. Every wondered the origin of it? Priyanka, in an exchange with Glamour magazine, revealed that it was given by a co-star. Piggy, because she eats a lot, and Chops from Chopra. “It was cute for a while, but now it’s like, ‘Ahhh!” she adds.
Now we know, Piggy Chops is her favorite nickname, but her friends call her Sunshine, Yanka and Mimi and the 35-year-old absolutely love it.
Both her parents were doctors and the actress was practically raised in a hospital that made her quite averse to the idea of becoming a doctor, as many would expect of her. In her own words, “…the level of formaldehyde and the sight of blood, I knew I couldn’t be a doctor! They definitely taught me discipline, and respecting people’s time, and whatever the job is, nothing is ever menial.”
Though she knew she wouldn’t be a doc at any cost, the Exotic singer took a minute to figure out what her final career choice would be. There was a time she was considering criminal psychology very seriously, but later enrolled in engineering. It was only after she was crowned Miss World in 2000 that she gave modelling a serious thought – the rest is history.
She may be now ruling American hearts but there was a time in her life, when the Quantico star was studying in Massachusetts and was vehemently bullied for her race and nationality.
When it comes to guys, our desi girl, apart from love, kindness and loyalty would look at the kind of shoes the man wears. Good taste in shoes is important as it speaks a lot about the person. But again, she doesn’t find those men attractive who put a lot of effort to their looks, precisely – overly groomed guys turn her off. She would rather be with someone who’d make her laugh.
Priyanka has a special place in her heart for high-end cars and is a proud owner of BMW 7-Series, Mercedes S-Class, and Porsche Cayenne.
In 2010 she was invited to cast her foot impression at the famous Salvatore Ferragamo museum in Florence, Italy. She was the first Indian artist to have her foot cast at this museum visited by tourists from all over the globe where the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Marliyn Monroe had their feet cast.
We all went gaga over Aishwarya Rai’s regal looks in the remake of cult classic, Umrao Jaan. Did you know that the movie was originally offered to our girl Priyanka Chopra first, but she had to turn down the offer on account of a busy calendar? The actor’s fans would have killed to see her in all those studding regalia but again, seeing how the movie tanked at the box office, we are pretty sure they aren’t ruing anything.
Blessed with genes, Priyanka never restricts herself to much on some extra fries. In fact, she always keep candies in her hand bag. I know it’s tough to believe given that ever fit and well-toned body she flaunts, but again, with a great natural metabolism, she says, she never puts on. Some people don’t even have to try, and that’s not even fair.
That PeeCee’s list of fans is endless is no secret, but it’s astounding to see even the Hollywood biggies have signed up for this beauty’s fandom. In one of his interviews, Ryan Reynolds was seen praising the actor. ”I have not seen her show but I’ve seen her interviews and she is charming, funny, and smart. She’s got a huge following and is doing great. I would love to work with her. I can see why she is a big star.” he said.
Alex Parish isn’t the first character that required the actress to go through some extensive action training. Girlfriend is a bad ass and has portrayed such characters many times. Turns out she trained in Ju Jitsu, Karate and Gatka for do justice to the action packed roles in the Don and Drona.
When asked to comment on the topic of nepotism stirred by Kangana ranaut recently, Priyanka backs her Fashion co-star and reveals how she was dropped from movies because the directors got calls from some who’s who in the industry to cast their family members.
