A South Asian magazine is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a list of prestigious South Asian actors, authors, singer, songwriters, designers and journalists. The list published in a collector’s edition of Anokhi Magazine includes such notables as Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra.
Raj Girn, founder of ‘Anokhi’ magazine, told the Wall Street Journal “Priyanka Chopra is unique and an anomaly in our list. She’s one of the very few people in the last decade who has been able to change the game and become the cream of the crop in all the industries that she’s worked in. Most people are lucky if they can be very successful in any one chosen industry, very few of those people can exist on top of numerous. For Ms. Chopra, first it was the beauty world where she won the Miss World crown in 2000. Then she went to Bollywood for a film career, and is one of the most sought after actresses we have today. Now Ms. Chopra is breaking barriers in the music world where she is the single biggest mainstream South Asian artist launched in the history of Western Music. What can be bigger than all of this?”
