What's Nice

Chopra began her career in the spotlight at 18 years old when she competed in the Miss World pageant. She was crowned the winner in 2000, and was just the fifth Miss India to ever do so. She was also crowned Miss World Continental Queen of Beauty of Asia & Oceania that same year.Chopra's audition for her starring role in Quantico was actually her first audition ever! Although she had appeared in a number of roles before, she had never formally auditioned for any of them.

"People kind of knew who I was and I was cast in movies because it made sense. And then I just ended up doing a lot of them because I guess I was decent at my job," she once said on Good Morning America.
