If there is something apart from her acting skills and lips that top Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is known for then it would have to be her height. Considering the fact that she has the Miss India and Miss World title in her kitty, it is very obvious that she is not exactly a petite beauty. Measuring a decent 1.71 meters in height, Priyanka Chopra is definitely quite tall, even taller than some of her male co-stars. When converted in feet, her height amounts to a cool 5 feet 8 eight inches and coupled with her killer body it makes her the quintessential beauty queen.

Priyanka’s height makes her look quite convincing in her roles, at least taking into consideration the physical aspects only. For instance, in her Bollywood debut “The Hero: love story of a spy” (2003) where she starred opposite Sunny Deol whose height is about 1.80 m, she definitely ‘measured’ up to him in ways more than one despite of acting alongside a veteran in the industry. Because of her height, she looks quite convincing as an intelligence agent or spy in movies like ‘Don’ and ‘Don 2’ and even as a supermodel in ‘Fashion’.

Priyanka Chopra’s trademark pouty lips and her long legs are two of her strongest attributes and the directors never fail to highlight them in the movies. She looked best in the movie ‘Dostana’ (2008). Whether she was wearing a sari, a bikini or hot pants, there is no denying the fact that her legs looked super-long and never-ending in the movie, more so because she wore heels in almost every scene. The shot of her striding out of the sea in a shimmering golden bikini with the perfect toned body is definitely a proof that she is quite tall and leggy.

Her height was always an advantage for her because it makes her complement her co-stars, be it the tall Ranbir Kapoor or Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan or the newcomer Arjan Bajwa. It seems to give her a good screen presence. Even though Priyanka Chopra has a decent height, in comparison to other Bollywood actresses she still loves to tread about in heels. She was quoted in an interview where she stated that she loves to wear heels, so much so that she feels she was born with them. Without heels, she feels short and her confidence level also takes a beating. She also pointed out that she feels fabulously tall when she is wearing heels

Although she may tower over the other Bollywood queens like Kareena Kapoor (5’6”), Sonakshi Sinha (5’6”), Rani Mukherjee (5’3”), she looks considerably normal with taller actresses like Katrina Kaif (5’8”), Tabu (5’10”) and Yukta Mookhey (6’1”). Nevertheless, her height never proved to be a disadvantage for her in her career and she has quite a lot of superhit movies to her credit. This goes on to show that while height does matter in the Bollywood industry, it is definitely not everything and it is certainly not the only factor that declares an actor’s success.
