The desi girl of Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra has made us proud by marking India on the global map. With her international show - Quantico, pop tracks like In My City, Exotic and Hollywood films like Baywatch and Isn't It Romantic? the 36-year-old star has garnered accolades and appreciation from all corners. We have always admired PeeCee’s inspirational journey, from earning the Miss World title to being an international star. Being a Bollywood buff, you would have always believed that Priyanka’s big screen debut was Tamil film Thamizhan (2002) opposite Thalapathy Vijay and that her Bollywood debut film was The Hero: Love Story of a Spy (2003).
But we’re here to get your facts rights. It will come as a surprise to you’ll but Priyanka signed her first-ever film in 2000, even before she was crowned Miss World. The name of the film was Good Night Princess and was directed by actor Atlee Brar, who has appeared in films like Apna Desh Paraye Log, Lahu Luhan and Kohram. It was a bilingual project, being made in Hindi and English and was based on the life of Priyanka Gandhi. Pooja Batra and Rahul Dev were also a part of Good Night Princess. In fact, PeeCee started shooting for the film a month before she won the coveted crown, and continued working on the project post the victory. However due to non-availability of funds with the producers, Priyanka’s Good Night Princess was shelved. Well, it would have been interesting to see Piggy Chops in that role, isn't it?
Meanwhile, the actress will be next seen in The Sky Is Pink. Talking about the film, it is a love story of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary and her parents. Aisha was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. October writer Juhi Chaturvedi has penned the story and also features Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in key roles. The movie is slated for an October 11 release.
