Miss World 2000 Priyanka Chopra, when you look up to a person some of their words get stuck by you.

Instead, shatter the glass ceiling.’ I have been a fan ever since.”
- A philanthrope and an avid dog lover, Shetty, in an interview, said,
If God would grant me one wish, it would definitely be that nobody goes to bed hungry. And if I get one extra wish it would be that I automatically get dog treats as soon as I see a dog.”
