Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra starrer “Quantico” premiered on September 27 on the American national channel ABC. Priyanka stars a rookie FBI agent Alex Parrish, who becomes a prime suspect in a terrorist attack.
This is the first time the actress, singer and Miss World has acted as a lead in an American TV series, and the hopes to makes her name in Hollywood, reports variety.com.
What’s the difference between working in Indian films and in the US?
I’ve shot all over the world, with crews from all over the world. The work ethic is the same. Bollywood is my career; it’s what I do. I have three movies in India, and this new show in the US.
I feel like a freshman in high school again. We have an amazing cast and crew; they know I’m alone without family, and they take care of me.
Do you get to improvise?
I’m good with reading lines, and I know Alex’s character. The writers are the backbone in television, like in film, but eventually as an actress, I can bring something.
What about your musical career?
I have no down time; we work six days a week. I’m working on (Bollywood film) “Bajirao Mastani” for Sanjay Leela Bhansali, so I go to India for a few days and fly back. I have no time to write songs. I sang the “Sunday Night Football” theme song two years in a row — my first part in American culture, although I still don’t know anything about American football.
