Priyanka Chopra changed the definition of being a global celebrity.
Not only is she ruling the west, she has made a name for herself in no time.
After popular music collaborations with the likes of Pitbull, Will.I.Am, and Jay Sean, she bagged the lead in American TV series Quantico and became one of the most recognised Indian celebrities in the world! Not only did she get the People’s Choice Award for favourite actress in a TV series, she also made her country proud when she walked the red carpet at the Oscars and presented an award at the prestigious ceremony.
She has been spreading her magic back home as well. She played Bajirao’s Kashibai last year, winning many hearts and sweeping a lot of awards for it.
While she is all set to make her big Hollywood debut opposite Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in Baywatch, she has now made it to the Forbes list of highest paid TV actresses in the world. Yes, you read that right!
The queen of this list is actress Sofia Vergara with earnings of $43 million and Priyanka has bagged the 8thslot for herself!
As per a Forbes report, “… like most television actresses (and actresses, in general), her millions are not made from screen time alone. Chopra is one of India’s top picks for advertisers, recently winning a seven-figure deal with sparkling juice brand Appy Fizz.”
While we do miss our desi girl back home, we couldn’t be more proud of her!
