Wishes poured in for ac­tor Priyanka Cho­pra, who will be con­ferred with the Padma Shri award this year. Film­maker Sub­hash Ghai, who pro­duced Priyanka’s film Ai­traaz (2004) says, “Ev­ery time Priyanka gets an award, I feel proud. She is such a tal­ented ac­tor. I was very close to her father. She de­serves ev­ery­thing be­cause she has earned all of this with­out the sup­port of a film fam­ily.” Film­maker Mi­lan Luthria adds, “Though I only shot for a day with her in Taxi Num­ber 9211, I was zapped to see she fin­ished the whole scene in one take. I went up to her and told her that maybe that you don’t re­alise how gifted you are. She is among the pre­miere per­form­ers.” Sound en­gi­neer, Re­sul Pookutty tweeted, “Huge Con­grat­u­la­tion to @priyanka­chopra for the Padma award. You de­serve it. Your hard work and com­mit­ment is to be fol­lowed, so happy for you (sic).”
