Bollywood Actress-singer Priyanka Chopra has been voted Best India Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2015 after beating Monica Dogra, Indus Creed, The Ska Vengers and Your Chin, who were also nominated in the same category.

An Indian artiste has never won in this category before, though Yo Yo Honey Singh was nominated twice, and if Priyanka snatches this win, it will be a first for the country.

Priyanka released her first single “In My City” feat. will.i.am in 2012, which sold more than 130,000 copies in its first week, topped the Hindi pop chart and was certified triple platinum.
