By New York time, it may have been a little too early for Priyanka Chopra to ring in her 34th birthday (18 July), but that didn't stop the Quantico star from kick-starting the celebrations with a lavish bash. The Bollywood actress, who is currently shooting for season 2 of the hit ABC series in the Big Apple, threw a party for her friends on 17 July.

Chopra has been retweeting all the photographs and birthday posts, as she thanked people for being a part of her special night.

The Indian actress cut a striking figure in an ankle-length, form-fitting nude dress. The actress — who plays a villainous role in the Dwayne Johnson-starring Baywatch movie — resembled her character Victoria Leeds. She accentuated the look with blood-red lips and let her hair down in beach-waves.

In another photo posted by Quantico creator Joshua Safran, Chopra looks visibly thrilled as she prepares to cut her birthday cake. "Such an amazing night. Happy early BD @priyankachopra. You throw the best parties!" Safran tweeted praising his lead star, who plays Alex Parrish on the show.

New York City-based designer Prabal Gurung too attended Chopra's birthday bash. Gurung took to his Instagram account to share a funny video of the multi-talented star, "Birthday soirée last night with the loveliest @priyankachopra . (Love) you PC and a very happy birthday xPG," he shared along with the video.

Back home in India, Chopra's cousin and Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra shared an adorable throwback photo of the two. Parineeti wrote, "To the most inspiring sister in the world — HAPPY BDAYYY!!! You are the hardest worker and the most loving sister who keeps us all in check. Proud of what you have achieved."

Meanwhile, the birthday girl too shared a couple of images with the hashtag "birthdayweekend"
