Priyanka Chopra certainly needs no introduction. This small town girl is a self-made woman who made her way from all the way to Bareilly to Bollywood and then to Baywatch.

Ever since, Priyanka’s career has been skyrocketing. In the year 2017, her name made it to the list of Forbes Magazine’s ‘100 most powerful women’. Our desi girl is a true inspiration for all the women across the globe.
On her 36th birthday, here are a list of reasons that makes Priyanka Chopra an ideal role model.
