One of Bollywood's most prominent actresses, Priyanka Chopra is also a renowned recording artist in India. The daughter of two doctors, Chopra spent much of her youth living in various cities, both in India and abroad. Starting out as a model, she won numerous Indian beauty pageants and was soon courted by filmmakers in her homeland. In 2003, Chopra appeared in the popular action movie "The Hero: Love Story of a Spy" and the blockbuster romance "Andaaz," with the two hits propelling her to screen stardom. After winning praise for her villainous turn in the drama "Aitraaz" (2004), she went on to have a notably successful 2006, with the release of two major productions, the superhero movie "Krrish" and the action film "Don," both of which led to eventual sequels. Other subsequent hits included the female-driven drama "Fashion" (2008) and the dark comedy "7 Khoon Maaf" (2011). Following a notably unglamorous featured performance in the lauded comedy "Barfi!" (2012), Chopra had her first role in a Hollywood production, voicing a character in the Disney animated movie "Planes" (2013), which positioned her to take off into new career heights on the international level.
