This year she starred in two hit movies- ‘Don - The Chase Begins Again’ and Krrish in which one was blockbuster hit at the box office. In both the movies she has done her job successfully and was widely praised. So, it is worthless to say that this beauty queen is now in the way of being professional.

Priyanka first came into lime light after she won the Miss India 2000 title and was nominated for the contest of Miss World 2000.

Getting into Acting Career
After becoming the Miss World in 2000, there was a common rumor that Priyanka Chopra would come to the film industry and try her fate in acting. The rumor proved true later when she first acted in a Tamil film named ‘Thamizhan’ where she played the role of Priya in 2002. The movie got surprise hit at the box office and within a week producers could look for profit. The movie was directed by Ravichandran. It is said that it was Priyanka Chopra who was the biggest advertisement for the movie and played the significant role behind such a success of the movie. She came to Bollywood in 2003 through the movie ‘The Hero: Love Story of a Spy’ which could not make any big turn in her career and became a flop one.
Andazz and Aitrazz: Coming into Lime Light as an Actress
Priyanka first came into light as an actress when her second Hindi film named Andazz was released in 2003 which was her first hit movie in Bollywood. She played the role of Jiya in the movie for which she won her the Filmfare Best Debut Award in 2003. Most important thing is that in this movie Priyanka once again had to fight with her Miss India competitor Lara Dutta as Lara also played an important role in the movie. This time the contest was based on both beauty and acting. The movie Andazz was directed by Raj Kanwar. The movie is based on a love story and Akshay Kumar played the role of the hero in the movie. After that she acted in some flop movies till her another hit movie ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’ directed by David Dhawan was released in 2004. The movie got a huge hit in the box office and her acting talent was highly praised fro playing the role of Rani Singh in the movie fro which she was honored with the ‘Stardust: Superstar of Tomorrow- Female’ award in 2005. The movie was based on also a love story and full of humor. In the movie Priyanka acted with some famous and popular personalities of Bollywood such as Amrish Puri, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.
Her next movie Aitrazz was another success story for the emerging actress. The movie was directed by Abbas-Mustan and released in 2004. The movie was a brilliant remake of
The Year 2006: Full of Success Story
In 2006, Priyanka Chopra got her first Blockbuster hit movie in her career. The movie Krrish was something special for not only Priyanka Chopra rather for the Indian spectators as this movie was the first superhero type movie like Suprman in the history of Bollywood. Hrithik Roshan played the role of Krrish, the hero of the movie and Priyanka acted the character of Priya, the lover of Krrish. The movie was a sequel of ‘Koi… Mil Gya’ both directed by Hrithik’s father Rakesh Roshan.
After Krrish, Priyanka acted in super hit movie ‘Don - The Chase Begins Again’ where she acted against Shah Rukh Khan who played the role of Don in the movie. For playing the role of Rama in the movie, Priyanka had to learn martial art for one month and she took part in some risky stunts in the movie for which she was highly praised and this proves her professional mentality. The movie was directed by Farhan Akhtar. Acting in this two of the most successful movies, she can see the year 2006 as a turning point in her acting career.
With the time passes, Priyanka Chopra gradually is getting more skilled and her performance graph is increasing day by day which make me feel that Priyanka can be the next superstar in Bollywood if she can continue her rising performance in the following movies.
