Priyanka Chopra has made India proud once again, and this time by getting featured in Time magazine's recent list of 100 Most Influential People in the World. The list also names other Indians, including RBI governor Raghuram Rajan, tennis star Sania Mirza, Google CEO Sundar Pichai and the founders of Flipkart, Binny Bansal and Sachin Bansal.
The Bollywood diva, who shot to fame in the West with her international albums and her lead role in the American TV series "Quantico," is among the six celebrities to appear on the cover pages of the magazine's special edition. The others featured are actor Leonardo DiCaprio, singer Nicki Minaj, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, IMF chief Christine Lagarde and rapper-actor Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Priyanka's "Baywatch" co-star Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) described Priyanka as an ambitious and hardworking actress. "We always quote the saying 'Wear your success like a T-shirt, not like a tuxedo,' and she really does â€” as big a star as she is, as global as she is, as beautiful as she is, there's this interesting quality of relatability," he told Time magazine.
"When I look at her success from the 50,000-ft. view and see everything that Priyanka has already done, is currently doing and has the desire and the bandwidth to do, I can see that her impact is going to be invaluable," he added.
The other names from the entertainment industry in Time magazine's list include Oscar-winning actor DiCaprio, British singer Adele, comedian Aziz Ansari, actors Johnson, Gael GarcÃa Bernal, Idris Elba, Oscar Isaac, Mark Rylance, filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, singer Ariana Grande, reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner, rapper Kendrick Lamar, model Karlie Kloss, and actresses Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Taraji P. Henson, Melissa McCarthy, Gina Rodriguez and Charlize Theron.
