Priyanka Chopra, whose star is steadily on the rise globally, has reached no. 1 on the global Top Actors Chart, which was released today.
The Hollywood Reporter's new social media-driven chart, presented with data from MVPindex, kickstarted last week. While Chopra was on no. 2 in the chart, her Baywatch co-star Dwayne Johnson had topped the weekly list.
But in this week's chart, ending 6 June, Chopra has managed to reach the top spot, pushing The Rock to the no. 2, and ranking higher than the much-talked about Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, who is on no. 4. Kevin Hart is ranked no. 3.
The Top Actors chart is a ranking of the most popular actors on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, with global data provided by social media analytics company MVPindex.
"Chopra’s No. 1 coronation comes after a 20% bump in all conversation-related metrics (such as comments on Instagram and Facebook, plus handle mentions on Twitter). The actress participated in Gap’s new Bridging the Gap campaign meant to embrace individuality and optimism (alongside Wiz Khalifa, Jasmine Sanders and many more), writing on Twitter 6 June, 'The reality of our world today is that there are many bridges to cross & gaps to fill'," writes The Hollywood Reporter.
The chart’s methodology blends social engagement on the platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers.
Chopra's star is steadily rising in the West as she often gets hailed for top-notch red carpet outings, talk show appearances and magazine covers. Her fan base is ever expanding.
After two seasons of the TV show, Quantico, led by her, the actress is getting ready for a 13-episode long season 3, which premieres mid-season on ABC Network.
The actress was also much-talked about for her villainous act in Baywatch, even though the film failed to deliver at the box office. Chopra is also in negotiations to join Hollywood films A Kid Like Jake alongside Jim Parson-Octavia Spencer and Isn't It Romantic starring Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth and Adam Devine this American summer.
This year, the actress also became global brand ambassador for two prestigious brands — Pantene and Nirav Modi. Last year, she was named UNICEF's global goodwill ambassador.
