Priyanka Chopra was born 18th July 1982 to the family of Capt. Dr. Ashok Chopra and Dr. Madhu Chopra. She had a very diverse background. She began her education at La Martinière Girls College in Lucknow as a resident student; a short stay at Maria Goretti College in Bareilly set her for higher studies in the USA. Having finished tenth grade in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, she was determined to become a software engineer or a Criminal Psychologist.
She liked Indian music and dance; flair for writing poetry and short stories; reading, particularly biographies; and has worked for many social-welfare programs. She aims for the stars after completing her education. She was a movie fan and would look for coming into the Bollywood if a good offer comes.
The Chopra family consisted of her dad, Dr. Ashok and mom, Dr. Madhu (nee Akhauri), and has one younger brother. Her dad is Punjabi-speaking, while her mom is from Bihar. As a child, she suffered from Asthma and was very close to her dad. Her family lovingly called her Mimi.
While she was born in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, she also spent her childhood in Rae Barreilly, in Uttar Pradesh as well as in Lucknow, where she was enrolled in the La Martiniere Girls’ School. These recurrent re-locations took place as Ashok was a doctor in the Indian Army. She then moved to the U.S. where she studied in Newton’s Newton North High School and then in Cedar Rapid’s John F. Kennedy High School in Massachusetts and Iowa respectively.
In 2000 she returned to India and enrolled in Jai Hind College and Basant Singh Institute of Science in Churchgate, Bombay, but had to leave unexpectedly as she was crowned Miss India. She was then crowned Miss World in the same year – a year which proved to be a year for Indian Beauty Queens – as Lara Dutta and Dia Mirza were also crowned Miss Universe and Miss Asia Pacific respectively. Incongruously, beauty pageants are banned in India’s conformist state, Uttar Pradesh.
After completing her tasks as a Beauty Queen, she was first seen on the tinsel screen in India in a Tamil movie ‘Thamizhan’.
She made her first appearance in Bollywood with ‘The Hero’ in 2002, and then went on to act in over 28 movies, as well as lent her voice as a playback singer in ‘Barsaat (2005)’. She has won 11 awards to date for her performance in ‘Andaaz’, ‘Aitraaz’, ‘The Hero’, ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’, & ‘Krrish’.
As of June 2007, she is involved in the filming of ‘Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam’, ‘Kajri’, ‘Drona’, ‘London Dreams’, ‘Qurbani’, ‘Chamki Chameli’, ‘Love Story 2050′ amongst others.
