What a ride it's been: Priyanka on her showbiz journey

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Priyanka Chopra, now a successful actress and producer, reminisced the moment when she clinched the Miss World title 16 years back. She said she had no idea of what she was getting into. Nevertheless, "what a ride it's been" for her.

Priyanka re-tweeted on Wednesday a fan's post on the crowning moment at the prestigious pageant. She captioned it: "Wow... 18-year-old me with no idea of what I was getting into. But what a ride it's been. Thank you all. Miss World 2000."

On November 30, 2000, Priyanka was crowned Miss World. She was the fifth Indian woman to bag the prestigious title.

Like most of the former beauty queens, she also tried her hand at movies. After making her Bollywood debut in 2003 with "The Hero: Love Story of a Spy", she went on to star in critically acclaimed films like "Fashion", "7 Khoon Maaf", "Barfi!" and "Mary Kom".

The Padma Shri awardee has also carved a niche for herself on foreign shores. In 2012, she entertained music lovers with her international hit number "In my city", which also featured American rapper Will.i.am. The next year, she released "Exotic" with Grammy winning rapper Pitbull.

The 34-year-old actress is now being lauded for her act in the American TV series "Quantico". She is also set to star in the Hollywood film "Baywatch".

Though she has international projects in hand, she is ensuring that Indian regional cinema gets a push. Through her and mother Madhu Chopra's Purple Pebble Pictures, she has committed to provide "a platform for great stories to be told, irrespective of language or genre".

Priyanka recently unveiled the trailer of her production venture "Sarvann", a Punjabi film.
