Priyanka Chopra

Few of us would have thought that a Bollywood actress would one day be on the Academy Awards red carpet in Hollywood,  coolly bantering with an HBO Asia reporter – in Hindi! The full of surprises Priyanka Chopra who’s pulled off so many tough things from beauty queen to Bollywood superstar to pop performer to super model to the lead in a hot new TV series,  is capable of doing just about anything. Yes, even playing  two vastly different women from different eras and time zones at around the same time – the smart, fiery ass-kicking FBI agent Alex in ‘Quantico’  and Kashibai, the gentle, gracious Maratha Queen of Baji Rao Peshwa.

As she says, “Own who you are, own your roots. We are amazing – we come from Asia!”

She’s got lots of other surprises up her sleeve – so just you watch!  Check out the video!
