Just after collecting her Padma Shri award, Priyanka Chopra started trending on Twitter and ’13 Years of PadmaShri Priyanka Chopra’ became the top trends on the micro-blogging site.

Chopra is one of the few Bollywood actresses, who has put the Indian film industry on the global map with American TV show Quantico and Hollywood film Baywatch. “From Dil Dhadakane Do to Bajirao Mastani to getting People’s Choice award for Quantico and now Padma Shri…I can’t explain in words what emotions I am going through. I think I am living my dream,” Priyanka had earlier told PTI over the phone.

“I think it’s all the benefit of working hard. I don’t take my job for granted,” she said.

She even shared her happiness earlier on micro-blogging site Twitter, “I am happy and excited that this honour came my way. It has been a good year for me. The start has been great. I am grateful to people who have acknowledged my work. Being the daughter of an army officer, this honour makes it more special.”

Moreover, PeeCee is the first South Asian actor to win the People’s Choice Awards for her American TV show Quantico in the month of January this year.
