Personal life[edit]

Priyanka Sinha Jha is married to film-maker and author, Piyush Jha. They live in Mumbai.[20]


Priyanka has also written a self-help book based on her experiences in Bollywood, Supertraits of Superstars[21]. In this book, Priyanka looks at eleven luminaries from Bollywood, and the attribute that is perhaps most responsible for their success. She details their stories, their struggles, their efforts to overcome setbacks, and what it is about them that made them not just reach the top of their game but stay there. Be it Amitabh Bachchan’s discipline, Aamir Khan’s perfectionist nature, Salman Khan’s generosity, John Abraham’s enterprise or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s grace—each star has one unique quality that others can imbibe to reach greater heights in their own lives.[22]
