Will Work Harder to Remain Worthy of Padma Shri: Priyanka Chopra
Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who has garnered international acclaim with her stint in the American TV series Quantico, on Tuesday received the Padma Shri, India’s fourth-highest civilian honour, from President Pranab Mukherjee at a glittering function at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
Priyanka looked no less than a “Desi” girl, dressed in a lime green sari while receiving the honour.
The former Miss World ventured into Hindi cinema in 2003 with the film The Hero: Love Story of a Spy and has made India proud globally with her role of FBI agent Alex Parrish in Quantico.
The actress, who is currently riding high on the success of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Bajirao Mastani, has even bagged a Hollywood film, Baywatch, alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
