Priyanka Chopra turns 37 today. The actress is on top of the ladder and has amassed immense success and praises over the years. Peecee has not just wowed us with her spectacular performances in Bollywood, but has even made us proud internationally and today, she continues juggling between Bollywood and Hollywood with great ease.

Apart from her films, there are various other things that make her a true icon globally and on this special day, we decide to bring you five best reasons why we feel she rightly deserves to be called the ‘Global Icon’.

Priyanka is a risk-taker:

In spite of being a top star in Bollywood, Priyanka took a huge risk of moving to Hollywood and it paid off. From starting off as a pop singer, she went on to do a popular show called Quantico, and then, there was no looking back. Today, she has a couple of Hollywood films in her kitty and is a recognized face in the West.

Peecee’s a humanitarian:

Apart from her strong risk-taking abilities, Peecee is also a humanitarian and someone who believes in doing her bit for the needy. The actress is associated with several NGOs to raise awareness around girl child in India. She is also the brand ambassador of Assam Tourism and is the UNICEF National Ambassador. Not just in India, the actress also has been doing her bit for refugee kids from Ethiopia. Truly, this is one lady who hasn’t forgotten her roots despite the heavy stardom.

Fearless and unapologetic:

Priyanka has been fearless from the onset. She has always voiced her opinions with utmost honesty and never held back. A glaring example we can pick is her comments on Donald Trump’s American presidency. When a reporter had asked her thoughts on whether she was scared considering Trump’s presidency, she shot back by saying, “I am an Indian. Are you scared?” This is just one of the many instances, when she has proven her fearless streak. We recall an incident when she met the PM of India, Narendra Modi in a short dress and was massively trolled. The next day, she put up another picture flaunting those hot legs and gave it back to those trolling her.

Priyanka is a secure actor:

When a celeb becomes a star, he/she tends to demand for higher pay and larger screen space in films. However, Peecee despite the massive success, continues being secure in her space as an actor. Imagine, taking up the second leading lady’s role in a film like Bajirao Mastani, where Ranveer-Deepika essayed the titular roles, while she played Bajirao’s first wife Kashibai. Nonetheless, Peecee walked away with immense accolades for her role. We are also reminded of her item song in the film Ram Leela.

Peecee has her priorities set alright:

Priyanka has her priorities in place. She can never compromise on something she doesn’t believe in. When she decided to marry Nick Jonas, she didn’t think twice about backing out from Salman Khan’s Bharat. For her, it’s always been about what suits her sensibilities and her desires.

Kudos to Priyanka for setting a great example to all the women out there who aspire to reach dizzying heights in their careers.
