ACTRESS Priyanka Chopra will be honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Award for being an international icon. The “Baywatch” star will be given the award under the newly introduced ‘Internationally Acclaimed Actress’ category.

“Priyanka’s hard and sincere efforts have helped her place herself on an international platform with grace. “She is representing India at a global level and that has made every Indian proud of her work. This compelled us to introduce this fresh category in the awards,” Dadasaheb Phalke Academy and Award Committee chairman Ganesh Jain said.
