Who is Priyanka Chopra Jonas?
Priyanka Chopra Jonas is an Indian actress, singer, film producer, and pageant winner. She was born on July 18, 1982 in Jamshedpur, India, and constantly moved back in fourth from India to America
Chopra’s childhood was very difficult due to her constant moving. Her parents- Madu and Ashok Chopra, both were physicians for the Indian army. Priyanka never really felt welcomed in her schools in Boston, to even being bullied due to her cultural background. This created her self-esteem issues, and depression.

From 2003-2004, she filmed many movies such as “The Hero: Love Story of a Spy”, “Andaaz”, “Plan”, “Kismat”, “Asambhav”, “Aitrazz”, and “Mujhse Shaadi Karogi”. This gave her major popularity in the Bollywood rom-com movies at the time, and one of the highest paid actresses in India.
Though she did well in India, her big break in America came from her role as Alex Parish in the 2015 show Quantico. She then on got more opportunities to star in well known movies like “Baywatch”, and “Isn’t it Romantic?”.
