NEW YORK: Priyanka Chopra is not ready to slow down, despite being caught up in juggling her work in India and the US. She says her aim is to work around the world, not just one country.
“I’m still doing Bollywood… two continents. I’m not okay with just one country. I want the world,” Chopra said, during an appearance on American talk show The View.
The actor is currently busy shooting for the second season of her TV show Quantico.
Chopra, who was seen essaying an FBI agent named Alex Parrish in the first season of the drama series, is now portraying a CIA agent in its second season. The former beauty queen has garnered applause for her cinematic judgments, with films such as Fashion and Mary Kom and also shared that deciding to be away from India to come and work in the US was tough.
“Leaving my country and coming to a completely different one… that’s always difficult,” said Chopra. “I’m alone, my family is not here and my friends are not here, though my cast always tries to make me feel really comfortable whenever we have Diwali or any of our holidays. They always try and make it really festive for me.”
The Bajirao Mastani star went on to reveal the excellent rapport she shares with her American co-stars. “The hair and make-up trailer is decorated because everyone knows I am away from home. But that was hard and television is a huge commitment. So, you know leaving your country, coming here, I wasn’t sure.”
Chopra will soon be making her Hollywood debut with the upcoming Baywatch the big screen version of the popular TV series which also features Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. According to her, there is a massive frenzy in India for Baywatch. “
