The age of Indian actresses has dawned upon us. In a new YouGov survey that reveals world’s most admired people chosen from 35 countries, only one Indian male celeb features while three female actors are prominently placed. The list of World’s Most Admired People 2018 has been topped by Bill Gates among men and Angelina Jolie among women. It features Amitabh Bachchan, daughter-in-law and actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra in the respective categories.
The list features 20 men and 20 women, all of whom are chosen after online interviews with over 37,000 people in 35 countries. Bill Gates and Angelina Jolie are the world’s most admired people – both of them have topped the list every year since 2015 when separate male and female categories were introduced. All four Indian stars – Amitabh, Aishwarya, Priyanka and Deepika – have featured on the list for the first time.
While Amitabh Bachchan features on the ninth spot among men, Prime Minister Narendra Modi occupies the spot above him. In the women’s list, Aishwarya Rai is the 11th most admired person in the world with Priyanka Chopra on 10th spot and Deepika Padukone on 9th. The trio got spots above Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot.
The Britain-based YouGov said on its website, “Entertainers dominate the female top twenty, with 14 of the most admired women being actresses, singers or TV presenters (although some, like Emma Watson and Angelina Jolie, are also notable for their humanitarian work). By contrast, the list of most admired men contains more people from political, business and sporting backgrounds.”
Following on from Gates in the male list is Barack Obama, with a 9.7 per cent share of admiration, followed by Jackie Chan and Xi Jinping. Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey follow on from Jolie in the females list.

Variety honor

Popular international publication Variety recently declared its Variety 500 list and the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Salman Khan, Karan Johar and others have made it to this coveted list. According to their website, “Variety500 is an index of the 500 most influential business leaders shaping the global $2 trillion entertainment industry.”
Priyanka Chopra, Anil Ambani, Mukesh Ambani, Karan Johar, Salman Khan, Uday Shankar, Punit Goenka, Siddharth Kapur, Subhash Chandra, Ekta Kapoor, Kishore Lulla and Aditya Chopra have been included in the list.
Apart from working as an actor, PC has established her production house Purple Pebble Pictures which creates content in various languages including Marathi, Punjabi and many others.
In Bollywood Priyanka is working on The Sky is Pink alongside Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. A source had earlier informed, “So they have started the workshop for the film. And Zaira is also a part of it. The Sky Is Pink is a working title. This is the first Hindi film Priyanka Chopra is doing after two years. Also, this is the fifth film she is doing with Ronnie and Sid Roy Kapur.”
