Priyanka Chopra
The year 2000 was a big one for Indian beauty pageant contestants—Lara Dutta and Dia Mirza won Miss Universe and Miss Asia Pacific respectively (and both went on to become Bollywood actresses) and Priyanka Chopra won Miss World, becoming the fifth Indian ever to win the title. She debuted in film in 2003, and for her performance in Aitraaz the following year, she won the Filmfare Best Villain Award (don’t you wish the Oscars had categories like that?)—and she’s only the second woman ever to win it. She appeared with Shahrukh Khan in the hit remake of the Hindi classic Don (2006), won the Filmfare Best Actress Award for playing a troubled model in Fashion (2008), and turned in a career-best as an unglamorous spitfire in the edgy drama Kaminey (2009). She was once linked with her Kaminey co-star Shahid Kapoor.
