New York/New Delhi: Priyanka Chopra has made it to the Forbes List of 100 Most Powerful Women of 2017. The Quantico star occupied the 97th position on the list, which was topped by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Apart from Priyanka, four other Indian women featured in the list. ICICI Bank CEO and MD Chanda Kochhar was ranked 32 on the coveted list while HCL Corporation CEO Roshni Nadar Malhotra took the 57th position, followed by Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, founder-Chair, of Biocon, at 71. Shobhana Bhartia, Chairperson and Editorial Director for HT Media, took the 92nd place.

Some of the other India origin women who have made the cut include PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi at the 11th position while Indian American Nikki Haley has been placed 43rd.

The overall list was topped by Merkel, who retained the top spot for the seventh consecutive year and 12 times in total.

Merkel is followed by UK Prime Minister Theresa May at the second position, who is "leading her country through Brexit, a historic, complex and transformative time for the country and the European Union", Forbes said.

May is followed by Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, who, along with her husband Bill, has donated more than USD 40 billion in grants till date and supports organisations across over 100 countries.

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, at the 4th position, and GM CEO Mary Barra (5th) rounded out the top five.

This year's list, ranked by dollars controlled, impact, spheres of influence and media presence, boasts of 23 newcomers.

At the 19th spot, Ivanka Trump is the second-highest ranked newcomer.

"Ivanka's step-mother Melania has mostly abdicated the first-lady spotlight (and doesn't appear on this year's list), but Ivanka has become a key player in the Donald Trump White House," Forbes said.

The 2017 World's 100 Most Powerful Women identifies a "new generation of icons, game-changers and gate crashers who are boldly scaling new heights and transforming the world", Forbes said.

The list covered four metrics -- money (either net worth, company revenues, assets, or GDP); media presence; spheres of influence and impact, analysed both within the context of each woman's field (media, technology, business, philanthropy/NGOs, politics, and finance) and outside of it.
