Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is going great guns right now. With back-to-back successes like MARY KOM, DIL DHADAKNE DO, BAJIRAO MASTANI in Bollywood to rising high in Hollywood with popular TV series like ‘Quantico' or doing singles like ‘Exotic', ‘In My City', Priyanka's career is scaling to dizzying heights. And now she adds yet another feather to her already studded cap as Priyanka is bestowed with Padma Shri award.


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.
