    • Priyanka: Most outsiders look at the film world as something glamorous. But no one sees the hard work that goes into it. I haven't taken a holiday in the last four years. I'm working 25 hours a day. There's no time to sleep or to eat.

  • Priyanka Chopra, miss world, actress.

    I may not be from India, but that does not stop me from watching many bollywood movies. Bollywood is basically the indian version of Hollywood. I am a big fan of Miss World... Priyanka Chopra. I think that she is so beautiful, and I think she is a very talented actress. She has always done a fantastic job in all of her movies. She is an awsome actress, as well as a terrific dancer. I love seeing her dance to music in her movies. It always something to look foward too, because she I feel she does it gracefully, and perfectly. However, that's my opinion. Others may feel differently, and not many know her name, but she is famous, she is a great actress, and a wonderful dancer.moreless
