Another feather has been added in Priyanka Chopra’s cap as the actress will be honoured at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Subsequent to bringing her Bollywood films like “Mary Kom” and “What’s Your Raashee” to the festival in 2014 and 2009 she made her Hollywood debut with “Baywatch”,
Priyanka joined “Selma” director Ava DuVernay and fellow actors James Franco and Ben Richardson as part of a short films jury for a TIFF competition last year.
Toronto is also honouring Priyanka for her activism. She also devotes time to Unicef as a goodwill ambassador.
Proceeds from the gala will help fund talent development programmes at the Canadian festival to get more women behind and in front of the camera.
