Modi, Sania, Priyanka TIME Probables For Most Influential People
The final selection however depends on the editors.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, tennis star Sania Mirza and
actor Priyanka Chopra are among the probable contenders named by Time magazine
for its annual list of the most influential people in the world.
Time will announce its ‘TIME 100’, the annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people next month.
Time said “Modi remains a powerful voice on the world
stage,” and while he saw his domestic agenda “sidetracked by
political squabbles” in 2015, his country still leads the world in
Modi was named among Time’s 100 most influential people in the world last year and President Barack Obama had written a profile for him for the magazine.
On Mirza, Time said India’s best female tennis player secured the number one ranking in the world for women’s doubles “while helping to redefine the role of female athletes in her home country.”
Time said Chopra, one of the highest paid actors in Bollywood, has “caught Hollywood’s attention” for her role in the drama series ‘Quantico’ and “will continue to do so in the Baywatch remake”.
