Exploring milestones films of Priyanka Chopra’s Bollywood career

Priyanka Chopra has recently announced on a popular Hollywood talk show that she intentionally quit Bollywood and looked to the West to continue her career. She was tired of the bullying and politics within the industry and did not wish to be a part of it anymore. We were sad to hear that, and decided to make a map of milestone films in her Bollywood career. Join us as we go back to the past.

2004 – Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and Aitraaz

The first is a romantic comedy with Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar that really gave Chopra her first hit film as a female solo lead. It did extremely well, becoming one of the top grossing films of the year. In the same year, she played Soniya Roy, a starkly negative role in the romantic thriller Aitraaz. In the film, it was her against Kumar and Kareena Kapoor as the leading pair, and Chopra shone in this role.

2005 – Bluffmaster!

After a string of flop films, she got on board Rohan Sippy’s comedy film, cast against Abhishek Bachchan, who was also finding his feet in the industry. With Ritesh Deshmukh and Nana Patekar added ti the cast, the out of the box hit a bulls eyes at the box office, and Chopra gained more standing in the industry.

2006 – Don

Don was a brave choice for Chopra, as it was a remake of an already hit action film, and she had large shoes to fill. Zeenat Aman’s to be precise! Chopra underwent intense martial arts training and performed all of her stunts by herself. Don was a commercial success, cementing Chopra’s position as a leading lady who held her own in a role opposite a successful star like SRK.

2008 – Fashion

A gamechanger for the careers of Chopra and Kangana Ranaut, Fashion showed the glamourous and ugly underbelly of the world of modelling and celebrity culture. Portraying a number of iconic and bold scenes, with Fashion, Priyanka Chopra has truly arrived and there was nothing anyone could do about it.

After these came Kaminey, Barfi Mary Kom and others, but by then, Chopra was already a household name.
