Wow – Priyanka Chopra makes it to Yahoo American headlines
Priyanka Chopra is a household name in India. But she is a relative unknown in America, where she spent a part of her childhood. PeeCee had been on a visit to her mother’s sister in Cedar Rapids Iowa, when she decided to stay back as she had fallen in love with American Culture. So had enrolled herself in a school there. After traveling around the United States with her mother’s family, she returned to India at 17 and was planning a career in aeronautical engineering when her mother sent a few glamour shots to the Miss India beauty pageant. Ms. Chopra went on to win the Miss World title in 2000. Later she easily warmed to acting; and then crossed over to pop culture.
As per sources, she hopes that being the new face of Guess will change that. Ms. Chopra said, “For me, the proudest thing about it was being someone of ethnicity to break the quintessential bombshell mode. That girl has changed. She can be from anywhere.” Paul Marciano of Guess was completely in favour of having her as the face of Guess, during his first meet itself. He said, “I knew instantly that I wanted to photograph her for Guess. Priyanka is extremely talented and accomplished, and her wonderful personality comes through in her photographs. Apart from her natural charisma.” Mr. Marciano wrote, “She’s one of the most recognized and celebrated talents in India and international cinema,” which factored into Guess’s decision to cast her in its campaign.
PeeCee has made it to the Yahoo American headlines. Well now she has truly become a house hold name not only in India but in United States too. The girl has truly made her country proud.
