Name: Priyanka Chopra
Born: 18 July 1982
Occupation: Actress, Model, Singer, Songwriter
Priyanka was born in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand to Ashok and Madhu, both doctors. She is the oldest of two children and her cousin is Parineeti Chopra, an actress. Her parents were doctors for the Indian Army and because of this Priyanka moved often with her family. At the age of 13, Priyanka moved to the U.S. and went to school in both Massachusetts and Iowa. During school she was involved in theatre, singing, and dancing. She finished her education at the Army Public School in India. She was interested in studying psychology or engineering in college, but her plans changed when she won a beauty contest. She continued in the pageant world and became Miss World in 2000. It wasn’t long after that she began to get offers to act.
Her first on screen role was in Thamizhan in 2002. Although some critics were skeptical of her acting, she continued and made a much better impression with the film The Hero: Love Story of a Spy. Priyanka had mediocre success in her next three films, but Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, her next film was not only a commercial success but solidified her as an actress. She has been nominated for and won several acting awards including a National Film Award for Best Actress and a Filmfare Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Meghna Mathur in the movie Fashion. Priyanka also won a Filmfare Critic Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Susanna Anna-Marie Johannes in 7 Khoon Maaf.
Although Priyanka has only been on the big screen for just over a decade, we estimate her worth to be $8,000,000 (GBP 5,062,650).
So how much is $8 million dollars really?
Whether it’s Hollywood or Bollywood, all stars need to keep up their appearances. For a beautiful Jovani dress worthy of being worn by the former Miss World, it would only cost about $850. Priyanka could own 9,411 of them. That a lot of dresses for anybody, so maybe she should stick to shoes. But if you’re feeling the least bit jealous of her money, just think, even she could only own 16 of the most expensive shoe, and that’s only eight pairs. Kathryn Wilson of New Zealand has designed a diamond heel worth $500,000 that would look just beautiful on Priyanka, and this shoe sounds just about right for any Miss World.
