Happy Birthday, Priyanka!!!

From winning the Miss World pageant in 2000 to wooing Bollywood subsequently, Priyanka Chopra hasn't really looked back.
Ever since her Hindi film debut in The Hero: Love Story of a Spy, the actress has been on a roll.
Of course, she's had her share of lame losers like Kismet, Yakeen, Asambhav and Blackmail too. But mostly she's basked in the glory of hits like Don, Krrish and Bluffmaster.

And as the smiley-faced stunner celebrates her 25th birthday on July 18, rediff.com lists some of her best performances.

Director Raj Kanwar's love triangle may have been super low on IQ but Priyanka's second release displayed spark and spice.

As an outspoken go-getter with oomph and style, the star impressed with her intensity and confidence. Not to forget her sizzling chemistry with hero, Akshay Kumar, helped in heaps.

Fellow Miss India winner Lara Dutta also got a thumbs up from the audience. The pretty ladies jointly shared the Best Debut Filmfare trophy for this one.

Doing a Demi Moore is no picnic. Priyanka, however, fared quite well in Abbas Mustan's remake of Hollywood's Disclosure.
Whether it was playing unapologetically ambitious svelte boss or going after Akshay Kumar with unabridged passion and obsessive determination, the actress pulled it off with aplomb.
And she was amply rewarded with her second Filmfare, this time for Best Villain.

Though it wasn't a lengthy or dramatic part, Priyanka excelled as Simmi in Rohan Sippy's con caper.
As the warm but upright girlfriend to Abhishek Bachchan, the Cancerian cutie was perfectly charming, chic and chilled.
Interestingly, it was during the filming of Bluffmaster that Bachchan Jr rechristened Priyanka as Piggy Chops.

Don-The Chase Begins

Shah Rukh Khan walked away with the best lines in Farhan Akhtar's revisiting of the 1978 classic of the same name.

But Priyanka got to kick ass as the action-philic Roma, which she underwent brief training in martial arts for. Her no-nonsense body language, agile moves and striking makeover totally rocked.

Truth be told, she was one of the best things about this enterprise.

Her earlier attempts at tickling the funny bone in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and Krrish didn't really produce the desired effect.

But this multi-story multi-starrer let her ham, howl and hiss. Though the comic needs to tone down a bit, she showed good potential.

The latter half of this desi Love Actually allowed her to considerably mute down and showcase pluck and elegance, Chopra style.
