Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who has garnered international acclaim with her stint in the American TV series ‘Quantico’, on Tuesday recieved the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian honour, from President Pranab Mukherjee at a glittering function at the Rashtrapati Bhavan here.
Priyanka looked no less than a ‘Desi’ girl, dressed in a lime green sari while receiving the honour. The former Miss World ventured into Hindi cinema in 2003 with the film “The Hero: Love Story of a Spy” and has made India proud globally with her role of FBI agent Alex Parrish in ‘Quantico’. The actress, who is currently riding high on the success of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Bajirao Mastani’, has even bagged a Hollwood film, ‘Baywatch’, alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
