What pits Priyanka Chopra against Dwayne Johnson, otherwise known as The Rock? Well, nothing really; that was a trick question. The Baywatch co-stars are both masters of their craft, and you’d be hard pressed to say who really beats the other.
However, the actress has recently dethroned The Rock from the American Idol list he had topped for over eight weeks. She fully deserves to be on the list, with first position being the icing on the cake.
From Bollywood to the world
The actress first dominated Bollywood for some years before becoming an international sensation with her performance as Alex Parrish in Quantico. Ever since she achieved global stardom, the actress cum philanthropist hasn’t disappointed.
Additionally, significant changes have happened in her life, but she remains the sweet lady everyone resonates with both on and off-screen. She is now a dominant force in Hollywood, and dethroning Dwayne Johnson of all people says it all.
How did she manage this feat? PeCee has quite the online presence, boasting over forty million followers on Instagram. Her recent red carpet appearances have dazzled us all, scoring her more points while at it. She debuted at Cannes walking the red carpet alone but had her husband accompany her at the second appearance.
She also has a number of Hollywood projects in the works, and is there any doubt that she’ll do them justice? Not one to forget her roots, Chopra is soon to feature in a Bollywood movie alongside Zaira Wasim and Farhan Akhtar. And as if that’s not all, the actress is trying her hand at being a filmmaker, working on a movie about Ma Sheela as a producer. Ma Sheela was the chief secretary to the Indian Guru Osho.
Naturally, the fact that PeCee is married to one of the Jonas brothers boosts her popularity. Being part of that family serves her well, considering that her brothers-in-law are also married to other celebrities. She is married to Nick Jonas herself, while Kevin and Joe are married to Danielle Jonas and Sophie Turner respectively. And yes, that’s Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner.
Being the kind-hearted soul that she is, Priyanka Chopra serves as a Goodwill Ambassador at UNICEF. In this capacity, the philanthropist was in Ethiopia soon after Cannes, visiting kids in refugee camps, listening to their stories, and being the voice to share their plight with the world.
Her trip to Africa created some online buzz, with questions being raised on why she wasn’t focused on her motherland. To this, she confidently replied that we’re global citizens and that a child remains a child no matter what part of the globe they are in. Service to any child anywhere is service to humankind was the point she was trying to put across.
Sharing her experiences in the country through a string of Instagram posts, Priyanka Chopra did indeed ensure that the tragic stories of the unfortunate victims in Ethiopia reached the global audience. Wouldn’t you agree that she did right by them?
