On winning the coveted honour, Priyanka said, "Being awarded the Padma Shri from the Government of India is a great honour and I am humbled to receive it.  I am the daughter of Indian defence Services.... the child of 2 army officers, which makes this so much more special to me. I know that this Award would have made my father very proud of me. My congratulations to the other awardees of this year.  I am privileged to be a part of such an illustrious list of achievers.”

She further added, “To be a part of this century old Indian Cinema, for more than a decade has been a fantastic journey. I have grown not only as an actor but also as an individual. I share this honour with all my co-stars, directors, technicians and everyone who has been part of this journey with me. There is so much I have to be grateful for and I have strived to give back in any way that I can.  I will continue my efforts to bring pride to my country wherever I am and in the best possible way."

Well, we truly feel Priyanka deserves it! Many congratulations to the actress.
