PeeCee also holds the 15th spot in the list of world’s most powerful women in entertainment and media 2017. It was only last year that Priyanka had made her debut on Forbes’ list of Highest paid TV actresses across the globe holding the 8th spot.

Meanwhile, recently, in an interview with a leading entertainment portal, when asked about what was the one thing she could do in Hollywood that she can’t do in Bollywood, Priyanka revealed, “ Nothing! At all, actually. The only thing that I think I get as an advantage in America vis-à-vis India is…for example, A Kid Like Jake. The movie that I’m doing…the lead cast is Claire Danes and Jim Parsons. But, it’s such an incredible story. It’s based on a play, it’s a first time director. It’s about a 4-year-old child who has a gender crisis and the parents don’t know how to deal with it. He wants to be Rapunzel instead of Spider-Man. How the school reacts and I’m the neighbour whose son doesn’t have gender issues and they are friends. You have people like Octavia Spencer. You have such incredible actors who have come together just to do 4 or 6 scenes. That’s the only thing that I miss in India.”

Priyanka was also quizzed about the bond between female actors in Bollywood and Hollywood to which the actress revealed, “I’m all about girl love. And I have had the most incredible experience working in India. We have celebrated each other’s success just as much in India. I make it a point to compliment my colleagues whenever I like their work, wherever I am.”
