Priyanka Chopra Jonas has completed 20 years in showbiz and has been celebrating her milestone year with photos and videos reminiscing about her initial days in the last couple of months. Today, she took to social media to share a video on her first three films as well as a special message from Lara Dutta who was also her co-star in one of the films and was crowned Miss India Universe in 2000 when PeeCee bagged the first runner-up of Miss India World 2000.

The video begins with Tamil film Thamizhan in 2002 in which Priyanka starred opposite Vijay. It was followed by her Bollywood debut – The Hero: Love Story of a Spy (2003) in which she shared the screen with Sunny Deol and Preity Zinta. Her third film was Andaaz (2003) with Akshay Kumar and Lara. In the video Lara had a special message for Priyanka and recalled how they were ‘kaccha papads’ (novices) in the film industry and hence watched each other’s back.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Seems like another lifetime now... back when it all started and I fell in love with the movies. Being in Indian movies was like entering a magical world.. I went in blind, with no idea what to expect and no formal training. It’s been a rollercoaster ride of challenges and milestones with so much I’ve learned since and so many incredible people I met along the way. I’d like to thank everyone who took a chance on me at the beginning. These 3 movies set me up on a trajectory I would never have expected. Can't agree more lala paaji @larabhupathi... We were such kaccha papads (novices) ! Thank you for your beautiful words... you are as gracious and kind as the first day we met Thamizhan - 2002 Late #GVenkateswaran sir #AbdulMajith sir #Vijay sir The Hero - 2003 #AnilSharma @iamsunnydeol @realpz Andaaz - 2003 Late #RajKanwar #SuneelDarshan @akshaykumar @larabhupathi #20in2020
