Priyanka Chopra recalls the day she was conferred the Padma Shri; says it was special seeing the joy and pride it gave her family

Priyanka Chopra completed 20 years in showbiz this year. From being crowned the Miss World in 2000 to making her mark in Bollywood and Hollywood, the actress has come a long way. In her journey, she has been conferred with several awards and honours including the Padma Shri, which is the fourth highest civilian award in India.

On Friday, as part of her 20in2020 series on social media, Priyanka Chopra recalled the day she was honoured with the prestigious Padma Shri. In 2016 of April, she had attended the ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan along with her family. Sharing the pictures clicked from the day where she is seen posing with her closest family members, she wrote, “When I look at these pictures and think back to that day I was conferred the Padma Shri – the fourth highest civilian award in India, it brings back so many incredible memories. While it was definitely a personal achievement for me, what made it so special was seeing the joy and pride it gave my family.”

“With our military background, I can’t even explain what a honour of this stature meant to me and my family. My Nani (grandmother), Bade Papa (eldest uncle), my mom, brother and my masis and mami (aunts) joined me that day and they were beyond thrilled to be at the iconic Rashtrapati Bhavan (the residence of the President) for the ceremony. Bade Papa came in uniform and looking at him as he stood beaming with pride, I truly understood what a moment it was for all of us. The only thing missing was my dad… even though he wasn’t physically there, I carried him with me. He was and is a big part of my journey,” she added.


Back in 2016 she had told the reporters, “This is the best award I have ever received. Thank you so much. I am grateful.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka Chopra will next be seen in the film The White Tiger alongside Rajkummar Rao and Adarsh Gourav. The film is an adaptation of the book of the same title by Aravind Adiga.
