Priyanka Chopra will soon be seen promoting the Skill India campaign. National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) has appointed Priyanka Chopra as the brand ambassador for this initiative. The former Miss world is nowadays focusing more on her Hollywood projects. Her last American TV show, ‘Quantico’, has been a huge hit. She recently appeared in her first Hollywood movie ‘Baywatch’ with Dwayne Johnson.
Priyanka expressed her desire to join this initiative and added that she will cooperate as much as she can. Priyanka will connect youth to this campaign through social media initiatives. Earlier, Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Shabana Azmi, Siddharth Malhotra, and Mohit Chauhan have remained associated with the campaign.
As per a report, NSDC Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Manish Kumar, said,
We have given a letter to Priyanka Chopra.
The Skill India campaign was launched by Modi in July 2015. The government aims to train 40 crore people by 2022 through its initiatives.
Recently, the 34-year-old had received backlash with online trolls criticizing the dress she wore to a meeting with the Prime Minister in Berlin during his four-nation trip. The short floral dress that Priyanka wore for the meeting did not go down well with social media users who slammed her for being inappropriately dressed.
Keeping that aside, we know that Priyanka’s glory is not only limited to acting in Bollywood and Hollywood, she has also been honored with the Padma Shri award, which is a clear indication of the fact that she is a person with extraordinary skills. While she becomes a part of the NSDC campaign, her fans curiously wait for her upcoming on-screen projects.
