Priyanka Chopra(popular among friends as PeeCee), is an actress, singer, producer, philanthropist and also MISS WORLD 2000. She is one of Bollywood’s highest-paid actresses as well one of the nation’s most high-profile celebrities.
Who would have thought an average looking, middle-class girl will rule Bollywood someday. Life gives us the unexpected, and same had happened with Bollywood’s desi girl Priyanka Chopra. Celebrating her 34th birthday, here we are presenting some untouched dark moments of her journey.
Priyanka’s early days in Bollywood were quite rough. To reach where she is now, she has faced many hurdles. Her road to success was full of problems and negativity. From the very starting till the year 2008, she has given many unsuccessful attempts in her career and received the critical review, but never gave up.
She was considered as female lead in Abbas-Mustan’s romantic thriller Humraaz and this could be her debut movie in Bollywood. But this fell through. Her screen debut was in 2002 Tamil film Thamizhan. In 2003, she appeared in a Bollywood movie “The Hero: Love Story of a Spy” as the second female lead opposite Sunny Deol. This was one of the successful movies of that year. Later this year, she did another successful movie Andaaz. Her performance in Andaaz also earned her the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.
It is quite unknown that her first three releases in 2004: Plan, Kismat, Asambhav performed poorly at the box-office. later same year she gave awesome and noticeable performances in MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI & AITRAZ (splendid performance in the negative role). For her excellent performance in Aitraz, she received the award for “Best Performance in a Negative Role”.
But who knew, this success was temporary, as in 2005 she appeared in 6 films, among which BLACKMAIL, KARAM, YAKEEN, BARSAT failed to earn success at box-office and the rest 2 WAQT:the race against time and BLUFFMASTER gained a mixed review from public and proved to be what we can call, a box-office success.
The year 2006, was quite better for PEE-CEE, as she gave two blockbusters KRISH and DON. But still, there were some movies like AAP KI KHATIR which proved to be mistakes in her career.
Next year i.e, 2007, she had two leading roles in SALAM-E-ISHQ and big brother. Both were unsuccessful and poorly representing her low points. This makes the year resulting bad for her journey.
The year 2008, the first half of the year was a disaster for her. All her movies were massive flops including LOVE STORY 2050, GOD TUSSI GREAT HO, CHAMKU & DRONA. All these flops were testing her patience and finally resulted as great work and praise for her movies DOSTANA and FASHION. After the huge success of these two, she never looked back. She was also honored with National Film Award for Best Actress for Fashion (2008)
At present, she is one of the top paid actress possessing versatile talent in herself. She has given many challenging and tough performances so gracefully. some of her top hits include BARFI, MARY COM, AGNEEPATH, BAJIRO MASTANI, etc. She has also debuted her singing career and gained success.
Along with all these, she is also working in Hollywood and her work is being loved around the world. Her confidence and courage is the life-blood of her success. Nowadays she is in New York shooting for the 2nd series of “QUANTICO” a Hollywood serial.
Piggy Chops is the perfect example of the old saying – “The road to success have no shortcuts in it”. She truly proved that she is a military girl with a strong determination. She knows what she wants and how to get it.
She is also working on her debut movie Baywatch which is scheduled to come next year.
We are wishing her a very Happy Birthday and a future full of health and happiness. May sky be limit of your success… cheers..!!!
