Priyanka Chopra is away from home, but she is drawing a huge crowd even in the US. The ‘Mary Kom’ star is shooting for the ABC Network show ‘Quantico’ in New York City. For Priyanka, the Quantico pilot is her first assignment in the US after she spent the past few years trying to foray into the American showbiz industry. Earlier, she had cut three singles – In My City, Exotic and I Can’t Make You Love Me – for the international music market, but none of them managed to set the global charts on fire. She now hopes Quantico is a success, and her role is noticed, if her international ambition is to get a push.
Quantico revolves around a bunch of young FBI recruits, each one of whom has a secret behind joining the bureau. The show will narrate their adventures and experiences as they train on Quantico base in Virginia, even as secrets of their past start emerging. One of the trainees will subsequently even turn out to be a sleeper terrorist who played a role in 9/11.
The favorite actress from Bollywood became a major attraction in New York City. Hundreds of fans lined up to meet Priyanka on the streets of New York on Sunday, and the actress did a meet and greet with them on 5th avenue where she was shooting. Known to be one of the most fan-friendly Bollywood celebrities, Priyanka, we hear, skipped lunch and used her break time to meet her fans. PC made it point to personally interact with each and every fan who had come to get a glimpse of her.
