Not afraid of being myself: Priyanka
NC Monitoring Desk
She broke the monotony of Indian actors playing blink-and-you’ll-miss appearances in Hollywood by grabbing the lead role in American show “Quantico”. With a lot of appreciation — and awards — for her role, actress Priyanka Chopra says what worked for her in Bollywood also works for her in Hollywood. “I think the same thing that worked in Hindi films worked for me internationally. I am not afraid of being myself,” Priyanka said. “I think the entertainment industry is full of too many wonderful, beautiful people and you can’t (just) be someone else. You have to stand out. You have to find your own uniqueness and that has to work for you. So those who want to be an actress, whether it is in America or in India, you have to find who you are and be comfortable with it,” she said. Priyanka’s journey in showbiz started at the age of 17 when she was crowned Miss World. It was followed by her Bollywood debut in 2003 with “The Hero: Love Story of a Spy”. Many in India rooted for her when she bagged the role of FBI agent Alex Parrish in “Quantico” for which she won the People’s Choice Award — the first South Asian actress to do so. The “Quantico” fame also got her a role in “Baywatch” movie, alongside Hollywood A-listers Dwayne Johnson and ZacEfron.
