She then took on the part of the leading lady in numerous box-office triumphs, fast becoming an A-lister of Indian cinema. As well as her work in front of the camera, behind it – Priyanka works with UNICEF, becoming the national and global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights. While standing up for the environment, education, gender equality and feminism, this superstar has also released three singles and founded the production company, Purple Pebble Pictures.
