New Delhi, Apr 22: Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra, RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan, tennis star Sania Mirza, Google CEO Sundar Pichai and founders of Flipkart Binny Bansal and Sachin Bansal have been appeared in the TIME list of the '100 Most Influential People in the World, released on Thursday.
Terming Rajan as "India's prescient banker," Time said he is among a rare breed of "economic seers" who he "steered" India through the global crisis and fallout, "playing a large role in making it one of the emerging-market stars of the moment.
While serving as the youngest chief economist of the IMF from 2003 to 2006, Time said Rajan predicted the subprime crisis that would lead to the Great Recession, standing up to critics like former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, who labeled him a "Luddite".
Soon after the news broke out, Priyanka Chopra took Twitter to express her feelings.
"What a way to start the day! #Time100's list of achievers! Humbled, overwhelmed and feeling so blessed!" tweeted Priyanka.
