Over two decades have passed, the moment Priyanka Chopra was crowned Miss World can be recalled vividly in many minds. But not all have seen her photos at the age of 17 before enrolling in the beauty contest.

At the age of 17, Priyanka owned a flawless waistline and ideal body ratio. Many fans said they could feel the superstar charisma from this 17-year-old girl in Priyanka Chopra old photo.

To us, this image of a young innocent PeeCee recalls the time period before she was crowned Miss World in 2000.

The eyes you can't forget once you look into.

Before becoming the Queen of red carpet looks, Priyanka Chopra had many years of training herself in front of the camera. Take a look at her first photo shoot at the age of 17 and you will see such a remarkable transformation in the posing style of the Indian beauty queen.

Though her eyes could tell, the way she posed was rather unnatural. Her fashion choice also needed improvement, especially shoes.

The heavy shoes ruined it all.

Having said that, close-up shots of Priyanka Chopra face were absolutely stunning. Having the most beautiful lips of Bollywood, it’s not hard for PeeCee to melt one’s heart through her photos only.

Priyanka Chopra before Miss India World

Besides practicing catwalk skills and preparing dresses for the competition, Priyanka Chopra had to forget her American accent to represent India completely.

As she spent most teenage years in the USA, Priyanka Chopra adopted the foreign accent naturally from people around her. However, when she decided to enroll in Miss India, she had to sound like a typical India. An explicit American accent might ruin her image.

Priyanka had trained herself a lot to clear her American accent.

Sabira Merchant, who was responsible for training Miss India contestants in 1999, shared that Priyanka had worked really hard to forget her American accent. Even when Merchant told her that she could relax as she had done enough work, PeeCee kept asking more questions to improve herself.

The senior trainer also commented that Priyanka Chopra in the old days was a bit childish who often rushed into things. She admitted when training the contestants, she was more impressed with Lara Dutta who was 4 years older than Priyanka. However, the way Priyanka answered the judge’s question surprised her.

In the contest, the judge Shah Rukh Khan had asked Priyanka that if she were to marry one of the following, an Indian sportsman who made her country proud, an artistic businessman who afforded her jewels and luxury life, or a Hindi film star, who she would pick.

She answered:

"I think I would go to a great Indian sportsman because when I come back home, or when he comes back home, I know I will be there to be his support to tell him I am proud of him, just as India is. To be able to tell him, Hey look, you did your best and you are the best, and I will take immense pride in my husband who will be a man of strong character if he can bring so much pride to my country."

The MC at the time, Bollywood actress, Malaika Arora had to say Wow after hearing Priyanka’s answer.

After winning the beauty contest, Priyanka was featured on popular magazines.

However, it turned out a film star was always PeeCee’s selection. Before marrying Hollywood star Nick Jonas in 2018, Priyanka Chopra used to have affairs with Shah Rukh Khan, who asked her that hypothetical wedding question.

After winning Miss World in 2000, Priyanka was offered various jobs in TV commercials then Bollywood films. It’s during those years that PeeCee has learnt a lot and shaped her professional style as now.
