priyanka chopra was invited by the Shanghai International Film Festival for their closing ceremony on June 21, where she was presented with the Festival's top award - The Jin Jue Award. This award marks the tenth award for her in the past six months.
The award, a symbol of the traditional orient culture, is an ancient antique Chinese wine container which has a uniquely beautiful shape. Priyanka was the first Indian actor to be presented with this honour on an international platform for her contribution to cinema.
She, however, could not attend the function due to a serious stomach infection.
