Priyanka Chopra Jonas has been named one of the 50 most powerful women in entertainment in USA Today’s power icons list. The list honours women who have redefined the entertainment industry and changed the game in their respective lines of work. Priyanka features in the list alongside other power players such as three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, media mogul Oprah Winfrey, singer Beyoncé, TV personality Ellen DeGeneres, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, and actors Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Tina Fey.
Talking about this international recognition, Priyanka says, “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.”
Priyanka is no stranger to power lists — she was on the Forbes 100 most influential list that released in November 2018 and Variety’s 500 Most Influential list that came out in December the previous year.
A source close to her shares, “Priyanka recently featured in husband and musician Nick Jonas’ video Sucker, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart. After her marriage to Nick in December, Priyanka has been going through a great phase, personally as well as professionally.”
