The other five covers feature Nicki Minaj, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christine Lagarde and Lin-Manuel Miranda.


In an interview with TIME, Priyanka said. “When I was very young a producer said, ‘girls are replaceable.’ I think subconsciously it worked on my mind, and I started picking up parts which were strong. Now 15 years later, I think I’m irreplaceable and the boys are replaceable.”


The actress has quickly gained an international following over the previous year thanks to her lead role in the US TV show Quantico. 


In the same time period, PC won a People's Choice award, gave away an Oscar and appeared on talk shows hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon.
