Priyanka Chopra is shooting for her international show Quantico, in America right now and she can’t wait for all her fans to see her new avatar as the FBI trainee Alex Parrish
At the recent Television Critics Association (TCA) panel discussion, Priyanka Chopra charmed her way into the hearts of western media. Priyanka shared her experience as a debutante at the the TCA tour. Read on for excerpts...
What was the wackiest question you were asked at TCA?
One of the magazines asked me about my secret talents. I think my answer kinda shocked them… Did you know that I can put my leg completely behind my head! Hahaha!
Were you asked any stereotypical questions?
One of the questions that came up frequently was why I’d want to pursue this project in the U.S.A. as a newcomer when I have a successful career back home.
Did you find the western media to be any different from the Indian media?
I didn’t see any big differences. I think for me mainly it was in the context of the questions that I was being asked, given that this is pretty much my TV debut here.
If given an opportunity to play a special role in an already popular ABC show, which one would you like to feature in?
Scandal and Modern Family!
Your show’s posters are plastered all over America! How does that feel?
It’s great to see that Quantico is getting such amazing support from ABC. Since this is my maiden TV show here, I feel like a newcomer all over again. It reminded me of the days when I first started working in Hindi cinema.
You also shot some action scenes. Is the experience different from the way action sequences are shot in India?
Yes and no. In some ways it was different, like doing stunts on actual streets in NYC, running across rooftops and the like, and in others it was similar to what I have done in films like Don and Mary Kom.
You were quoted saying that you want to manage Bollywood and international television at the same time. Are you open to doing Hollywood films as well?
I would like to pursue every opportunity that comes my way. If it’s an interesting, challenging project, I would be open to it.
