Priyanka Chopra had recently been awarded the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball for her philanthropic work. And soon after this honour another one has been bestowed on her.
This time it is at the Marrakech Film Festival. She shared pictures of herself with the award on Instagram and wrote, “To think that my career started nearly 20 years ago is surreal. I am honored and proud to be recognized tonight at the Marrakesh Film Festival. Thank you, truly, to everyone who came out to Jemaa el Fna square. #Gratitude. Thank you @melitatoscan @festivaldufilmdemarrakech,” she added.
Hollywood legend Robert Redford, Moroccan actor Mouna Fettou and French filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier were also distinguished with awards at the Marrakech Film Festival.
On the work front, she has been busy shooting for The White Tiger, a screen adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s award-winning novel of the same name. She is also the executive producer for the project, which is directed by Ramin Bahrani and also stars Rajkummar Rao.
Priyanka will also be seen in a kids’ superhero film titled We Can Be Heroes, directed by Robert Rodriguez.
