Priyanka Chopra is finally back to B-town for very few days. She has been busy shooting for her American TV show Quantico and her Hollywood debut Baywatch in the USA and Canada. Making a great impact in Hollywood, Priyanka was part of lots of award shows including the prestigious Academy Awards. She was even on the cover of A-list international magazines like Time Magazine.
Recently, PeeCee featured on the cover of the Emmy magazine. She had an up close and personal interaction with the magazine and the interesting video of the interview was released recently.
Talking about trying her hand in television, Priyanka said, “I was not sure whether I wanted to do TV initially but when Keli Lee, the VP of casting came to meet me in India to pitch the idea of a deal. She just said ‘You know what just come to LA and read the script, if you don’t like it, you don’t have to necessarily do it’. I wanted to pick a show that I wanted to watch and Quantico was that to me. It was one kind of show which made me go 'Wow! I would love to see this one!’”
Priyanka had to give an audition to land the lead role in Quantico. Spilling beans about it, the National Award winning actress revealed, “It was not the first audition of my life but I was super nervous. I always knew what auditions were like but I never had to do it because I was Miss World and eventually movies just kept happening. I went to the bathroom to calm myself down and said 'You are 50 movies old, you do not have to be afraid of going in front of 5 people and performing. What’s the big deal?’”
Feminism is the real talk of the town currently. Many actresses have shared their views on being feminist. Priyanka shared her views on it by stating, “My dad always told me not to fit into a glass slipper, shatter the glass ceiling. Be who you want, say what you want. I was raised to be opinionated and have a mind of my own. I am a very proud feminist.”
Way to go Desi Girl!
