Let’s not even try to turn back to count all that she’s slayed in the past year – because IT’S TOO MUCH!

But this morning, she did it again!



Priyanka Chopra was bestowed the fourth highest civilian award in India, the Padma Shri, by the President, Pranab Mukherjee this morning.

“I can’t explain what I’m feeling right now. It’s very surreal. It’s such a huge honour and I’m so happy to be a part of the ceremony today.

Being at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, in the presence of the honourable President, Prime Minister and all the dignitaries, sitting amongst the other accomplished awardees and mostly having my family present there, made today complete. I missed my dad. I know he would have been very proud.”


PeeCee has become the first South Asian to bag the People’s Choice Award for her show ‘Quantico’. Currently in Montreal for the same, Priyanka flew down to India especially for the award.

And here’s what the proud actress Tweeted soon after receiving the honor.


Priyanka has an overwhelming global Twitter following of 13.6 million and her Padma news has spread like a wild fire.
#13yearsofPriyanaka is trending on no.6 world-wide in just two hours!

Priyanka, keep being the inspiration you are.
