We were really happy to see Priyanka Chopra return to Mumbai a couple of days back. But last night, she made our day as she appeared at the Stardust Awards 2016. She slayed the red carpet in an Anamika Khanna ensemble. The Quantico actress won the Global Icon Award, however, it was her heartwarming speech that touched our heart.
After accepting the award, Priyanka 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!"
