Priyanka Chopra occupied the top spot on the list of trends on Friday after she received an award at the ongoing Marrakech International Film Festival in Morocco. The actress, who recently received the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award from UNICEF, was felicitated again at the film festival for her contribution to cinema. Expressing "gratitude" after being 'recognised' at the film festival, Priyanka, 37, expressed in her latest Instagram post that she feels "honoured and proud" to receive an award at the Marrakech Film Festival. She also posted a couple of pictures of herself from the event, in which she can be seen holding her trophy. She captioned her post: "To think that my career started nearly 20 years ago is surreal. I am honored and proud to be recognized tonight at the Marrakesh Film Festival. Thank you, truly, to everyone who came out to Jemaa el Fna square."
