The People’s Choice Awards is an American award show, The show has been held annually since 1975,recognizing the people and the work of artists in the entertainment industry, voted on by the general public. Last year, Priyanka chopra won it for the favorite actress in a new TV series category and this year she won it again in the main lead category.
What an incredible journey of Miss CHOPRA, from marine drive to rodeo drive, she has mesmerized both the countries with her sheer acting skills but this isn’t the first time Indian actors have stepped into Hollywood shoes, but with Priyanka I think its different -she managed to play it, on her own terms ,grabbing the pivotal role in an American TV show “Quantico” was a big opportunity which she no doubt handled with great poise and dedication. What was more heartening to see is her big win at the “Peoples choice awards” not once but twice ,most recently when she won as the best actress TV drama series crashing down her big Hollywood contemporaries like Ellen Pompeo, Kerry Washington, Taraji P. Henson, and Viola Davis. Its really good to see someones hard work being paid off so beautifully and aesthetically. The “Padmashree” actress is not only making India proud but also paving the path for many other actors to get a ticket to Hollywood.
In a white country for a brown girl to make her mark is really promising ,from Oscars to Emmy’s every prolific international award show has her on their red carpet. It might seem very flowery but to get your name in the ” Time 100 most influential people in the world ” is really path-breaking. An accomplished Bollywood actress, a staunch supporter of educating the girl child, a powerful women to look upon she is really nailing it all. Kudos for her success and making India proud on a global platform. This miss world truly symbolizes women power.
