It's no secret that Priyanka Chopra is taking over the world — quite literally. Not only is she Bollywood elite, she's a Hollywood star, a philanthropist, a singer, a fashion icon, a strong voice for feminism, and an all-round global bawse. Last year, she was named in the prestigious Forbes 100 Most Influential list as well as in Variety's 500 Most Influential list.
Now, to top it all off with another feather in her cap, Priyanka has been named one of the most powerful women in entertainment by USA Today. The power icon's list honours women who have changed and influenced the entertainment industry in a major way, and includes names like Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Ellen DeGeneres, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Tina Fey, and more.
Speaking about the huge honour, Priyanka said: "“For me, power is simply an energy that empowers me to do what I love. It’s the ability to open doors, and turn my dreams into a reality of what I was destined to do. I feel privileged to share this platform with these amazing women who have each pushed through their own challenges and created their own realities and today stand shoulders above everyone in their chosen careers. It does give one a feeling of achievement.”
