There is something about our Piggy Chops that sets her apart from the crowd. May be her smile, her confidence or simply her hardwork and determination that slowly but steadily has established her as an actor in the industry.

Her portrayal in Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion has the nostalgia of her initial days. We still remember her as a young confident woman whose life changed after she won Miss India crown. The beautiful damsel got the opportunity to answer Shah Rukh Khan's question who was one of the judges at the pageant. Little did she know that one day she would be his leading lady in Bollywood. Such is the magic of destiny.<b1>

When Priyanka won her first Filmfare award for her debut Bollywood vehicle Andaaz, everybody praised the beauty for her looks, but not much was said about her acting skills. After doing some ordinary films, Priyanka Chopra first impressed the critics as well as audience with her performance in Aitraaz. Her character in the flm not only oozed oomph but also gave some mainstream villains a run for their money.

Another memorable role for Piggy Chops was the out-and-out masala film Mujhse Shaadi Karogi with Salman Khan. She won millions of hearts by portraying the cute Rani.

The actress was also loved in Don opposite her Miss India judge SRK.

Piggy Chops hit a rough patch with the debacle of Love Story 2050,God Tussi Great Ho, Chamku and Drona, but she didn't lose her spirits. Priyanka bounced back again and how! The actress not only got rave reviews for her performance in Fashion, she also managed to walk away with all the major award trophies. Her Dostana with Abhishek and John too was accepted and appreciated by audience.

As the actress turns 27 and gets set to portray 12 characters in Ashutosh Gowariker's What's Your Rashee?, we do wish she continues to ride the success ladder!
