Beautiful Bollywood actress and former Miss World Priyanka Chopra, best known here as lovable terror suspect/FBI trainee, Alex Parrish in ABC’s Quantico, is sending 70 kids — 50 of them girls — to school in her native India. She also covers their health care.
“I know each kid. It’s very personal,” Chopra tells Glamour mag.
Chopra, 33, donates 10 percent of earnings to a foundation she set up a decade ago after learning her housekeeper could afford to send only her son to school, not her daughter.
Chopra’s own education was divided between two continents. She began high school in Newton, Mass., but went back to India at 16 after being bullied. “Brownie, go home!” some girls would chant.
