Priyanka Chopra – Chief Guest at a Choir Festival
Priyanka Chopra was pleasantly surprised on a recent visit to a Delhi school as the chief guest at their choir festival, that the Class 5 students of the school have an entire chapter on the actor’s life in their text book. Being a ‘badmaash‘ has got its own perks and who better than ‘Badmaash Babli‘ aka Priyanka Chopra to vouch for the same.
After having captured Bollywood and the ad world alike, the Priyanka mania is now all set to enter academics as well. Courtesy her army background, Chopra spent her childhood in a number of places, and her story of constantly moving base and wide exposure is now part of the Class 5 Environmental Studies textbook in the first chapter titled Roving Families, Shifting Homes. The actor grew up in Bareilly, Lucknow, Mumbai in India and Newton, Massachusetts and Iowa in the USA.
The chapter also has pictures of PeeCee’s family and her Miss World winning moment. A source close to the actor says, “This is the first time an actress has been honoured in such a manner”.News is that Priyanka has now found a place in the curriculum of Springdale’s School, which is affiliated to the CBSE and has got its branches in India as well as abroad. Her chapter in the Environmental Studies class has been aptly titled ‘Roving Families, Shifting Homes’, wherein her growing up years has been covered. In addition to that, a story has also been included wherein she talks about her army background and her childhood globetrotting to places.
