Priyanka Chopra had a good year, there’s no doubt about it. She became one of the most popular and hyped actresses, not only in India, but abroad too. Whether it was her TV show, or her upcoming movie, or her red carpet appearances, she kept the media buzzing.

While Stranger Things did make her popular, Millie has transcended beyond the show in less than a year. Her interviews, talk show appearances, celebrity friendships and rapping skills have become highly popular on the Internet. Today, she turns 13, and she is already one of the most talked-about actresses worldwide. Here’s why:
