After conquering the Hindi film industry, Piggy Chops is all set to take Hollywood in her stride. She has already starred as the leading lady in both the seasons of ABC’s Quantico and now she’s shooting for Baywatch.
Last week Chelsea Handler invited the Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra at her show. It was such an honor to see the former Miss World from India chat at Chelsea Handler’s show on Netflix. After conquering the Hindi film industry, Piggy Chops is all set to take Hollywood in her stride. She has already starred as the leading lady in both the seasons of ABC’s Quantico and now she’s shooting for Baywatch with Dwayne Johnson.
While talking to Chelsea, Priyanka revealed that she grew up in a small town in India, Bareilly and went to the US to live with her aunt when she was 12 years old. She stayed there for 4 years and was delighted to know that one doesn’t need to wear uniforms in school. After all, teenagers always want to look good!
Chelsea hit the nail when she asked PC if she knew how to speak English when she came to the US. Priyanka outwitted her with her spontaneous and smart reply, saying that in India, more than 10% of the population speaks English and it is much more than most countries. She also said that English is her first language along with Hindi. She went on to tell Chelsea that she would face no problems when she would come to India since most people converse in English. We hope Chelsea doesn’t have any doubts about the English-speaking abilities of Indians now!
When asked about her work schedule, PC replied that they did not have the concept of a weekend in India and she was getting spoilt in America. She said people work for 7 days a week and only get an off on occasional Sundays. Chelsea asked her if she was still working for Bollywood and PC said that she’s trying to strike a balance between the two. Priyanka stays in the US during the week and shoots for Baywatch while she flies to India during the weekend to finish her Bollywood commitments. We look forward to seeing her opposite Dwayne Johnson in Baywatch. Way to go Priyanka!
