LOS ANGELES: Global icon Priyanka Chopra Jonas has joined international celebrities including Oprah Winfrey and Meryl Streep in USA Today's list of "50 most powerful women in entertainment".

Honoured on getting featured in the list, Priyanka said in a statement: "I feel privileged to share this platform with these amazing women who have each pushed through their own challenges and created their own realities and today stand shoulders above everyone in their chosen careers. It does give one a feeling of achievement."

Priyanka became a popular name in the West through her lead role of Alex Parrish in the American TV drama thriller series "Quantico". She made her Hollywood debut opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Efron in the action-comedy "Baywatch" in 2017.

The list also included the names of singer Beyonce, television star Ellen Degeneres, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and international pop icon Jennifer Lopez among many others.

The Bollywood star is not new to the power lists. Previously, she had featured on the 2018 Forbes 100 most influential list and the 500 Most Influential list by Variety in 2017.

The 'Fashion' actress will join Brie Larson, Ashley Judd, Anna Wintour and Oprah Winfrey for the 10th Women in the World Summit to be held at Lincoln Centre in New York on April 10-12. She will be interviewed on stage by Women in the World founder Tina Brown and will discuss her career as an activist and entrepreneur.

On the film front, Priyanka will be next seen in "The Sky is Pink" alongside Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim.
