These acts were followed by roles in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Andaaz and Aitraaz in which she played the role of a seductress in the leading 2004 thriller.
Much as she was a well-established actress by 2006, the proceeding years saw a lull in her acting career with some unsuccessful roles. Nevertheless, her star would continue to shine brightly with the release of Fashion. She has gone ahead to portray many different characters in her roles which have earned her acclaim as being a highly versatile actress.

Priyanka seems to be a celebrity that values family relationships going by the bonds that she shares with them. For instance, she is on record as being very close to her younger brother and describing herself as “Daddy’s Little Girl”.

It is also worthy to note that when she was just getting started on her acting career, her mother left her work to focus on giving her support. It must be a decision she prides herself in having taken!
