Priyanka Chopra receives Padma Shri

Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra on Tuesday recieved the Padma Shri, India’s third 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 has been a part of Hindi cinema for almost a decade and has made India proud globally with her stint in the American TV series “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.
