During the Miss World 2000 finale, Priyanka was asked to name a successful woman living today and explain her reasons for choosing her.

Her response, in which she spoke about Mother Teresa and why she is one of the most successful women of all time, garnered widespread appreciation.

While Mother Teresa passed away in 1997, the judges didn’t seem to mind that Chopra answered incorrectly.

During her acceptance speech at the Millennium Dome in London, Priyanka expressed her commitment to using her victory as a platform to inspire positive change in people’s thoughts and actions. She received the coveted crown and a £70,000 prize from Yukta Mookhey, the previous year’s winner.

“I admire her from the bottom of my heart for being so passionate and kind … giving up her life to put smiles on people’s faces,” Chopra said about Mother Teresa.

In August 2016, Priyanka Chopra took a break from filming the second season of Quantico to support Usher at the premiere of the 2016 American biographical sports film Hands of Stone.

The then-34-year-old actress stole everyone’s thunder in a sensational black dress as she arrived at the SVA Theater in New York City.

She selected a little black dress from BCBG Max Azria, which featured a keyhole cutout, long sleeves, and a thigh-grazing hemline.

It looked modest in the front but sexy in the back, thanks to the lace-trimmed open-back design.

Priyanka, who had just wrapped the action-comedy Baywatch filming, also posed on the red carpet alongside “Hands of Stone” star Usher.

The singer plays Sugar Ray Leonard in the biographical sports film.

The nose job recipient accessorized with a statement ring and a pair of black pumps.

She styled her hair straight, parted it down the center, and completed the look with a brown matte lipstick.
