Priyanka Chopra might be in America right now, but when she was in Mumbai last month she attended the Stardust Awards 2016. The show is being aired today and we have to say we were really happy to see Priyanka slay at the red carpet in an Anamika Khanna ensemble. The Quantico actress was even awarded the Global Icon Award during the show. But all of this was nothing compared to the heartwarming speech she delivered after getting the Stardust award.
After accepting her trophy on stage, Priyanka went to the podium and said, "Guys!! This is a very special award! It is very difficult to leave your familiarities, your home, your country, be away and work somewhere else. It feels very new and feels very lonely. But the love and support that I have got from across the world, especially from my home, has been wonderful. So this award goes to everyone who has supported all my outlandish ideas and all my outlandish behaviour! Thank you all!"
