Padma Awards 2016: PC, Rajinikanth, Sania Receive Honored
Eminent personalities from sports and entertainment have been awarded Padma awards from President Pranab Mukherjee. This year, Priyanka Chopra has filmed Quantico, been cast in Baywatch, presented an Oscar, starred in Jai Gangaajal AND received a Padma Shri - and it's only April. Despite having been all but claimed by Hollywood, the 33-year-old hasn't entirely abandoned her home country - she was in New Delhi to collect her Padma Shri, said that she really needs to buy a plane of her own, not a house. "I do live on a plane. Completely. I need to buy a plane instead of a house," said Priyanka. But make no mistake, no amount of frequent flyer miles will displace India from heart. "Home is always India. Home Will always be India. I am never confused about that. But where my house is, yes. I am, I go where my work takes me. I've conceded to the fact that I am destiny's child, I think, and my work takes me places that no man's been before," Priyanka said, "But I really miss home. It's very hard to go to a different country. It's like being in college." Along with, Priyanka Chopra Tamil superstar Rajnikanth, sportsperson Sania Mirza, South Indian film personality Ramoji Rao and Bollywood singer Udit Narayan total 56 eminent personalities got honored.
