Priyanka Chopra went from being a Bollywood Queen to becoming a Hollywood star. This 36-year old beauty has been to numerous shows and runways and she undeniably owns one of the most beautiful faces on the planet. Let’s revisit some of the things that we should know about this star.
She was crowned Miss World
In 2000, 17-year-old Chopra won the title of Miss World. According to the actress’ beauty pageant trainer, Sabira Merchant, Chopra really worked hard to get rid of her American accent which she had developed while studying abroad. “She had that kind of a nasal twang. I told her if she was going to represent India, she could not come across as a Yankee sounding person. You have to sound Indian in front of the crowd or at least you should get a global English accent and not American English,” Merchant revealed to Mumbai Mirror. But she further defended that Chopra’s accent was honest. “It was an honest American accent which she had picked up naturally. Nothing was put on. When you are that young, you are impressionable and you pick up the accent you are hearing all around you.”
She Considered Being an Aeronautical Engineer
Before hitting the runways and claiming pageant titles, Chopra originally wanted to be an engineer. She’s maybe one of the very few stars who likes Math and is good at it. How sexy is that! – A Math Genius and a stunningly beautiful actress!
