Miss World 2000 Priyanka Chopra is very popular and has already made a place for herself in Bollywood. But she is very ambitious and is not limiting herself to Bollywood only. She is an all-in-one package- a pretty face, a great actress, and also a singer. She got herself a single with Pitbull, debuted in Hollywood with Disney’s Planes, sung at NFL, and was also signed by giant brand Guess. She also carved a niche for herself on American TV by playing a central lead character on ABC’s Quantico. Here are few reasons and ways how Priyanka Chopra made it big:
- Got A Big Launch
American’s Broadcasting Company (ABC) launched pee Cee, which is America’s most popular studios. Being launched by ABC is something that is very commendable, especially for an Indian actress. She had signed a 1-year contract with Keli Lee who is ABC’s Executive Vice President of Casting. This made a huge difference in shaping her career. Quantico’s Season 1 was a success and recently Season 2 has also premiered.
- She is very Popular
Sure every Bollywood actor is very popular but the type of fan following she has would make her contemporaries envious. Her fans include some of the big names like Enrique Iglesias, Gerald Butler, Kerry Washington and such. After the success of Quantico, the list is rapidly growing.
- Is an International Singer
Her international single ‘In My City’ was a huge hit and made everyone go gaga over her singing skills. The song was selected as NFL’s theme song of 2013 season of its Thursdays Night Football. Her next song ‘Exotic’ featured Pitbull and made its presence online. Also, her cover version of Bonnie Raitt’s ‘I can’t make you love me’ was chosen to be featured in nationwide campaign undertaken by Beats By Dre.
- Made a Global Name
She made her Hollywood debut by lending her voice to Disney’s animated film Planes. She worked with Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher in Planes. Pee Cee won critics over with this one. Her international singing with Pitbull also worked in her favor and audience overseas noticed her. After the success of Quantico she now shares the screen with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in Baywatch.
- She went with the flow
According to Priyanka, she had no strategy. She just went with the flow. Her initial movies in Bollywood did not do so well until she did Madhur Bhandarkar’s fashion. This movie changed her life and became a turning point in her career. She won a National Film Award for that movie. After that there was no stopping her and she is moving at a quick pace now, creating a niche for her internationally.
- Her Talent speaks for her
She has surely taken a road less travelled. Many Bollywood actors like Aishwarya Rai, Irrfan Khan, Amitabh Bachchan have made it to Hollywood but not as big as Pee Cee. Her continuous hard work, focus, and dedication speaks for itself. She has made it big without any Godfather in the industry and that is commendable. She has been well received by the West and there is no stopping her now.
