Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra both made their Hollywood debuts this year. Deepika with xXx: Return of Xander Cage and Priyanka with Baywatch left an indelible impression not just here in India but also across the west. However, their fame doesn’t seem to have been fruitful as both these talented Bollywood actresses failed to bag a single award at the recent 2017 Teen Choice Awards.
While Priyanka Chopra was nominated in the Choice Movie Villain category for her role as Victoria Leeds in Baywatch, Deepika Padukone earned several nominations including Choice Action Movie Actress, Choice Breakout Movie Star, Choice Movie Ship (with xXx: Return of Xander Cage co-star Ruby Rose) and Choice Female Hottie. Despite her four nominations, Deepika could not win in any of the categories.
However, dry spell at the Teen Choice Awards is not a marker of the actresses’ talents as the TCA’s this year seemed to favour some of the big Hollywood blockbusters like Beauty and the Beast, Wonder Woman and the very recent Spider-Man: Homecoming. While Wonder Woman and Spider-Man: Homecoming clocked three awards each, Emma Watson and Dan Stevens starrer Beauty and the Beast swept the awards with five wins.
The 2017 Teen Choice Awards were held at Galen Center in Los Angeles, California on August 13 and celebrate the achievements of the current year in several domains such as film, television, music, sports, comedy, fashion, and the Internet.
Both Deepika and Priyanka have their next Hollywood ventures lined up. Deepika has been confirmed to reprise her role in the upcoming xXx sequel. Priyanka Chopra, on the other hand, has been signed for two movies, A Kid Like Jake and Isn’t It Romantic. Hopefully, the two actresses will have better luck the next time around.
