Priyanka Chopra Trivia
Amrita Rao was the first choice for the role of Priya in Krrish, but Rakesh Roshan saw Priyanka Chopra's performance in a special screening of Aitraaz and was so impressed that he decided to cast her instead.
After completing her responsibilities as a Beauty Queen, Priyanka Chopra first appeared on the tinsel screen in India in a Tamil movie 'Thamizhan' playing the role of Priya, the love interest of the protaginist in the film played by Vijay.
In 2000 Priyanka Chopra returned to India from US and enrolled in Jai Hind College and Basant Singh Institute of Science in Churchgate, Bombay, but had to leave abruptly as she was crowned Miss India. She was subsequently crowned Miss World in the same year - a year which proved to be a year for Indian Beauty Queens - as Lara Dutta and Dia Mirza were also crowned Miss Universe and Miss Asia Pacific respectively.
Priyanka Chopra was born in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. She also spent her childhood in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh as well as in Lucknow, where she was enrolled in the La Martiniere Girls' School. These frequent re-locations took place as her father Ashok Chopra was a doctor in the Indian Army. Priyanka subsequently re-located to the U.S. where she studied in Newton's Newton North High School and then in Cedar Rapid's John F. Kennedy High School in Massachusetts and Iowa.
