From Bryan Adams to Michael Kors, Priyanka Chopra has a tonne of famous new BFFs

A celebrity for each selfie...

A definite perk of being a global superstar like Priyanka Chopra is that she can wear pyjamas outdoors and not have her friends call in an intervention. Another is that she sometimes gets to hang out with fellow global superstars and chat about women’s rights and conspiracy theories behind Zac Efron’s abs. One quick stroll through Priyanka Chopra’s timeline and you’ll see that she was hanging out with designer Michael Kors at the recent Council of Fashion Designers of America awards. She wore a shimmery black number by the designer and promptly put it to the test by twirling, because how else would you do it?

A few days ago, the actress stepped out in the crisp New York sunshine for the Veuve Clicquot Polo Event, where Nicole Kidman was present. Also present at the event was protest-ender and Pepsi enthusiast Kendall Jenner. Maybe it was PTSD from the trainwreck that was Baywatch, but we decided to take a walk down Instagram memory lane and revisit Priyanka and friends. Join us, will you?

All the famous people Priyanka Chopra has casually hung out with

Priyanka Chopra with Laverne Cox

Priyanka met Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox in London and the two had a fierceness off right there in the corridor. Priyanka promised Laverne that she would make a guest appearance on OITNB if she lost, and in turn Laverne bet that she would leave the straight hair trend to Priyanka. We don’t know the outcome of the competition, but we will keep you posted.

Priyanka Chopra with Michael Kors

The actress recently attended the CFDA awards wearing Michael Kors on both herself and her arm. We wouldn’t be surprised to see selfies with other attendees like Bella Hadid and Karlie Kloss popping up on our timelines.

Priyanka Chopra with Meryl Streep

Fun fact: Meryl Streep actually confused Priyanka Chopra for her Golden Globes award trophy and had the fright of her life when Priyanka started talking to her.

Priyanka Chopra with Kate Mara, Kendall Jenner, Keri Russel and Nicole Kidman

A casual observer might be flummoxed to see Kendall Jenner present at an event where there are no protesters or angry police officers around. Who is she going to pacify with her can of Pepsi? It’s a widely known fact that horses prefer Coca Cola. Nevertheless, she managed to get photographed with Priyanka Chopra, so all’s well with the world.

Priyanka Chopra with Nicole Kidman

Prior to this event, Priyanka and Nicole met up thrice to discuss how they can manage to make polka dots relevant again. 

Priyanka Chopra with Barrack and Michelle Obama

Priyanka met the former US President and First Lady at the White House Correspondents dinner last year. These are the smiles of people who don’t know yet that the world is about to head towards an inevitable apocalypse soon.

Priyanka Chopra with Pharrell Williams

Lesser known fact: A potentially disastrous mash-up of ‘Exotic’ and ‘Happy’ was thwarted right before this picture was taken at the Oscars last year. 

Priyanka Chopra with Ellen Pompeo and Kerry Washington

(Not pictured here) Shonda Rhimes huddled in a corner, furiously writing a pilot for the trio to star in stat.

Priyanka Chorpa with Taylor Schilling

Priyanka spent the better part of her debut at the NYFW, trying to convince Taylor Schilling that orange can never be the new black. After Trump won the elections later that year, Priyanka sent an apology fruit and champagne basket to Taylor.

Priyanka Chopra with Jane Tribeca, Whoopi Goldberg and Robert DeNiro

Priyanka had some free time left after flying around the world non-stop, shooting for a movie and a primetime TV show, and becoming a permanent fixture in American households with her talk show appearances. So she decided to take up the role of a jury member at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival this year. Her fellow jury members include Whoopi Goldberg and a newbie called Robert DeNiro.

Priyanka Chopra with Jodie Foster

When Priyanka ran into Jodie Foster at a shoot, she tried to take tips from The Silence of the Lambs actor on her craft. Jodie was secretly disappointed to realise that by ‘her craft’, Priyanka was not referring to her hidden love for decoupage.

Priyanka Chopra with Bryan Adams

Bryan and Priyanka came to a mutual agreement that mashing up 'Summer of 69' and 'In My City' will end up in collective tears and madness. So they settled for a stunning black and white selfie to make the world feel inadequate.

Priyanka Chopra with Malala Yousafzai

"Malala, you are an undeniable force to be reckoned with. The world knows that. You are a role model to all the girls and boys that want to make this world a better place for the future. Spending a few hours with you and your incredible father Mr. Yousafzai ( who reminds me so much of my father) , I realized you're also just a young girl with young dreams. Your jokes, Your love for Hindi Films, your infectious laughter will always remind me of what a huge responsibility you have taken on at such a tender age.. I'm so proud to know you my friend. You inspire women like me all over the world," wrote Priyanka as her caption.

Priyanka Chopra with Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan

"I had the privilege and honor of meeting Her Majesty, @queenrania of Jordan again...this time in Amman. It is amazing to see the full extent of support that the Kingdom of Jordan has provided during the ongoing Syrian refugee crises. The numbers are staggering and overwhelming but the good work continues day after day. Queen Rania is a true inspiration. Her tireless efforts to help those in need comes straight from the heart and has always been consistent.. as a UNICEF Eminent Advocate for Children, she leads by example as is so evident by the countless programmes for children that she is involved in. She does this all with such grace and calm. The meeting and our discussions, further reiterated my commitment to to help children the world over... because every child matters, no matter where they come from," Priyanka said.

Priyanka Chopra with Gloria Steinem

"It was so incredible to be on a panel with @gloriasteinem. An icon to the world and definitely one of mine all my life. A true feminist. A fearless fighter for women's rights no matter what, no matter who, no matter where... everything about this legendary woman is selfless. She will never stop. She told me herself. Nor will I @gloriasteinem thank you for always giving a voice to the voiceless. U r my hero," Priyanka wrote as her caption.
