In her shoot for the publication, the star proudly flaunts her enviable toned frame in a range of wearing crop tops, paired with loose shorts and bottoms.

Away from her sports shoot, the beauty queen opened up about her whirlwind romance with American heart Nick, which began in May 2018.

On July 19 of that year – a day after Priyanka celebrated her birthday – Nick offered a romantic break on the Greek island of Crete.

Speaking about the proposal, the star said, “ I wasn’t expecting the proposal at that time … it was two months! I thought it would happen, but it was still a complete shock. [But] I gave up control and just went with it.

She explained how their romance developed, explaining, “ We met sporadically for about two years. We were texting and doing stuff, and maybe there was a part of me that wanted something serious.

“ But I was taking a break from the guys at the time. I didn’t want anyone romantically. But there’s always been something about Nick, which is why we always ended up staying in touch no matter where we were.

“One thing to know about my husband is that when he decides he will get what he wants! When he knows, he knows. There is such sublime confidence that you cannot help but say “OK”.

The pair tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodphur in December 2018, ending a life-changing year.

Now, Priyanka says, they are up to the challenge of making sure they see each other every three weeks, as their busy careers keep them in different parts of the world.

She told Elle: ‘We see each other every three weeks. Wherever we are in the world, we fly to each other at least once a month for a few days. It was our rule when we got married for the first time. Otherwise, we would never see each other.

Marriage wasn’t the only major recent change for Priyanka, who had to start her career from scratch after leaving a superstar in India for a new life in the United States.

“ The audition process was taboo in India at that time, [especially] when you become a great actor, ”she says. “ Now that has changed a lot, but 10 years ago auditioning wasn’t something you did.

‘But [in Hollywood] it was culture, so I had to learn it. I learned that I cannot rest on my laurels and that I should walk into a room and introduce myself to people and not feel upright.

‘Just because much of the world can know me, [doesn’t mean] Everyone should. It’s always difficult to start a new career. And I completely treated [moving to America] like a new career.

Love and marriage: The couple were set to marry in a lavish ceremony at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodphur in December 2018, ending a life-changing year.

“If you think about it, I’ve only been an actor in America for five years. I just started doing the job that I really want. It takes time in every career. ”

Going for gold in Hollywood has also potentially meant breaking down barriers as one of the few South Asian actresses in leading roles outside the continent.

“I think there is such a big space for Indian talent,” she said. “But it’s going to require mobilizing our community to support each other instead of pulling each other out.

“I thought to myself, ‘I want to create opportunities as a producer for South Asians in Hollywood like I’ve never done before. I had to fight for it.

“I had to say, ‘I don’t want to do the extra Indian accent. If my character was born and raised in the UK or the US, why would she talk like that? Why would you wear a bindi?

“It’s a silly, stereotypical thing. I challenged that a lot, and now I’m getting to a point in Hollywood where my culture is my asset instead of my definition.

However, as she continues to make strides in Hollywood, Priyanka, who recently released her memoir Unfinished, is more withdrawn when it comes to social media.

She said: ‘My relationship with social media has changed over the past four to five years. I’m definitely a lot more suspicious now. I don’t interact as much.

‘[Before], if I wasn’t asleep or if I got bored in a trailer, I would start a Q&A with fans, or go live on Instagram. I am much more careful [now]. It broke my heart a bit. The succession of it all, how easy it is to take something insignificant and make it so big …
