    From Bollywood to will.i.am: Priyanka Chopra's Big Shot

    As a high school student in Newton, Massachusetts in the mid-to-late-'90s, Priyanka Chopra's listening habits were the same as tons of suburban teens: the Fugees, Biggie, Tupac. "I wore black to school for ten days after [Tupac] died," Chopra recalled recently, sitting a long way, literally and figuratively, from Newton at a patio table at the Hotel Bel-Air on a cool Los Angeles evening.As a former Tupac-loving teen, Chopra is fairly typical, but it's probably safe to say that not many teenage Makaveli fans go on to become huge Bollywood stars. One of India's most popular actresses, Chopra, 30, has starred in dozens of blockbuster Bollywood films and won four Filmfare Awards, Bollywood's equivalent of an Oscar. Her official Facebook page has well over three million likes, and her Twitter account has nearly as many followers.
