New Delhi [India], Dec 6 (ANI): India's desi girl, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, seems to be busy collecting accolades this December. After being bestowed by the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award by the UNICEF on Tuesday, Chopra was honoured at the 2019 Marrakech Film Festival on Thursday for her outstanding contribution to cinema.
