Hey Priyanka Chopra, you make me believe that there is nothing that desi girls can’t do
Not that desi girls needed any proof that they can conquer the world, it is still great to see someone actually go out there and realise their dreams.

No, we are not talking about Priyanka Chopra scoring Nick Jonas; we all know it is the other way round, don’t we? What we mean is just the way that PeeCee is breaking myths and going all guns blazing in owning her life, is awe-inspiring. Hear us out…
Many would claim that a beauty pageant victory is ticket to Bollywood. Sure, but there have been enough pageant winners, who have come and gone without being noticed. Just like star kids, pageant winners perhaps get a good launchpad but from there, they are pretty much on their own. Priyanka, too, had her share of bumps while on the road to success but it was her perseverance that kept her going. That, combined with some real acting talent, meant that Priyanka was here to stay in Bollywood. And sure she did! Not only did she star in some really strong roles, she also won awards for most of them.
But why limit yourself to Bollywood when you are Miss World, right? Like a true blue ambitious and headstrong desi girl, Priyanka not only went to the West, she took everyone there by a surprise. Here was an Indian girl who refused to be stereotyped as a bumbling geek with a thick accent. Here was an actress who, with her amazing acting chops, commanded the lead role in an American TV show and owned it. Here was a girl, who didn’t shy away from playing a baddie in her debut Hollywood film. No wonder then that the West is so obsessed with her. She was on the wishlist of every chat show and boy, did she impress them all with her wit and charm!
For us, who have seen her become the Priyanka Chopra, it may seem like a natural progression of things. But let’s take a moment to see this vis-a-vis the world. How many foreign actresses can claim to have the Western media wrapped around their little fingers? Not many, right? It is not easy to carve a niche and yet our desi girl has managed to.
Coming to her relationship with Nick. Shouldn’t we take a moment to celebrate how the actress found true love? What’s more… The actor-singer is head-over-heels in love with our desi girl. And while the current trend calls for a destination wedding, PC being PC, brought Nick boy and his family back to India for a roka ceremony. Because no matter how high she soars, her roots will always be here in India.
We are sure that had she not been a famous actress, Priyanka would still be living life with the same confidence as she does now. We are just glad she is, because now she is an inspiration to anyone who thinks they are limited in any manner.
