India's first truly global star, Priyanka Chopra Jonas catapulted her way to the top and finds herself on every influential magazine cover and talk show, to every important red-carpet event, including her recent tryst with the Cannes Film Festival.
Priyanka brought old-world Hollywood glamour on the red carpet like never before when she graced the Cannes red carpet, wowing the toughest fashion critics. On her last night at the French Riviera, the international icon also hosted a special Chopard party with her husband Nick Jonas celebrating cinema and fashion.
The exclusive party hosted by the power couple was attended by the biggest supermodels, singers, and actors.
Going where no other Indian has gone before and proudly taking her home country with her, Priyanka Chopra Jonas is all about inclusivity and has always represented, encouraged and supported Indians across the biggest international platforms. So it comes as no surprise that the icon extended a special party invitation to fellow Indian and television actress Hina Khan.
A close source has revealed the reason behind Priyanka's this special gesture for Hina Khan.
"For someone who came into the industry with no connections, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, has always tried to encourage and support newcomers. She has always inspired ambition in women and believes in empowering them. She is all about acceptance and inclusivity. She met Hina Khan and invited her personally to the Chopard party she hosted with Nick Jonas as she genuinely believes in women uplifting other women. Other Indian names who attended included Huma Qureshi and Diana Penty, all of whom Priyanka hosted at the exclusive party," revealed a source close to PeeCee.-
Post attending the bash, Hina took to her social media and penned down a heartfelt note thanking Priyanka for inviting her to attend the bash and shared a few inside pictures from the party. Her message read:
An unexpected invitation by a world star.. personally, after I gained consciousness and prepared my self to finally make it, I was still an outsider but only until you arrived. You didn’t need to, but still never left my hand for a second, introduced me to the people I probably wouldn’t have met and I felt as if all the achievements of my little career happening in fast forward as you present me as a star to each one of them. You somehow know everything ..as you mentioned my debut film and praised me for my hard work and appreciated me for the risks I have taken in my choices. Yes I have taken risks and I am still taking them, whr I almost have everything in my television career ..position,power,money everything.. But someone has to start somewhere I believe.. I always wanted to break the stereotypes and prove it to the world that television actors have it all.. Give us the opportunity our fare share and we will kill it..Not easy at all I know.. But ya I will keep trying keep working hard and make it possible.. I REPEAT TELEVISION HAS IT ALL.. Talent, Glamour, Elegance, Beauty, Grace, Right attitude , and Professionalism.. I am taking baby steps, And I will keep doing that no matter how much criticism one has to face and I will make my own place I promise.. we will face it and win over it as long as we are together.. Hearfelt Gratitude to each one of you for standing by me?? WE HAVE IT ALL GUYS.. With my first debut film called LINES, I am trying hard very hard to erase the lines created between talents and mediums ??And coming back to @priyankachopra your inclusiveness surpasses my ability of comprehension. Your deliberate attempt to lift up people around you not for their backgrounds but their talent is one of a kind. You are a walking inspiration! When a human being is a personification of an idea of self belief, Grace , humility, substance and greatness, that person can only be you priyanka Chopra You are already the best version of my dream self in the future I want and I believe thousands others like me do too. This is the Priyanka Chopra who believes in lifting others and growing together?? you are a sweetheart @nickjonas #AnOutsider #FromTelevisonToCannes-
