Name: Priyanka Ashok Chopra
Nick Name : Sunshine, Mimi, Yanka, Priya
Height: 5' 8"
Date of Birth : July 18, 1982
Priyanka was born on July 18, 1982, in the Chopra family consisting
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 affectionately 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
frequent re-locations took place as Ashok was a doctor in the Indian
Army. She subsequently re-located 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 abruptly as she was crowned Miss India. She was subsequently
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.
Ironically, beauty pageants are banned in India's conservative
state, Uttar Pradesh.
She made her debut 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.
