Actress Priyanka Chopra, who was crowned Miss World on Nov 30, 2000, and went on to create ripples in Bollywood as a versatile actress echoing similar precedent set by 1994 fame Aishwarya Rai, says the international beauty pageant was her “beginning”.
“Wow! Was I really 17 then! The beginning of my beginning… My Miss World anniversary. #Throwback,” she tweeted Sunday.
After winning the title, she entered the Hindi film industry in 2003 with “The Hero: Love Story of a Spy”, which co-starred Sunny Deol and Preity Zinta.
The multi-talented actress has now carved a name for herself in acting, singing and has now also ventured into production. She was recently praised for playing boxing champion M.C. Mary Kom in her biopic titled “Mary Kom”.
