She thought she'd be an aeronautical engineer. But the fates had different plans for Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, who emerged onto the global stage in 2000 at the age of 18, winning the Miss World pageant title. It didn't take long for Bollywood to come calling, with Chopra making her big-screen debut in 2003's "The Hero: Love Story of a Spy."
