Priyanka Chopra’s acting prowess is known to all. From Bollywood to now Hollywood, she has been giving strong competition to her male contemporaries. In her upcoming film, Jai Gangaajal, she will be seen playing the tough cop Abha Mathur as she takes on crime in a corruption ridden village district. The actress’ career graph has only grown by the year with her choice of roles making her one of the most popular stars we have today. Here’s why we feel she is as good as any male lead:

Fashion: Priyanka’s first film where she held the mantle. One of her best performances, Fashion showcased her versatility as an actress. Her character of an aspiring model not only won her the National Award but also the Filmfare

Saath Khoon Maaf: This critically acclaimed film had the actress play an Anglo Indian woman who kills her 7 husbands. Touted as the role of a lifetime by critics, the film saw her play a 25 year old girl to a 75 year old aged woman with such ease

DON: The Don franchise marked her rise as an action star. Priyanka held her own in spite of starring opposite superstar Shahrukh Khan

Mary Kom: The preparation and hard work put in by the actress to get into the skin of a female boxer was impeccable. From her dialect to nuances, she totally hit the mark

Quantico: The actress’ latest outing as the FBI agent Alex Parrish has been universally acclaimed. The role not only led to her winning the People’s Choice Award but also led to her bagging a big role in the movie re-make of the successful TV series Baywatch.
