She started high school in Massachusetts before moving to British Columbia, Canada. From there it was back to India, and Chopra then attended the Army Public School at Bareilly.

In 2002, she first appeared in the Tamil song 'Thamizhan' and in 2003 made her Bollywood debut with the movie 'The Hero: Love Story of a Spy' as a supporting actress.

She has won Best India Act category at the Europe Music Awards 2015. In 2005, Priyanka starred in six films. Her four films, Blackmail, Karam, Yakeen and Barsaat failed to do well at the box-office. But her other two releases, Waqt: The Race Against Time and Bluffmaster did decent business. In 2006, Chopra starred in two of the most successful films of the year, Krrish and Don. Her consequent releases in 2007, Salaam-e-Ishq and Big Brother, were flops. In 2016, she received the Best Supporting Actress Flimfare Award for Bajirao Mastani.
