Priyanka Chopra has been receiving a lot of praises for her portrayal of Alex Parrish in her first international show 'Quantico'. From making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's popular American TV show to our B-town celebs going ga-ga over her, she surely knows how to win our hearts!
But do you know how Pee Cee landed a role in 'Quantico'. Well, in an interview to Access Hollywood the actress revealed it all. She was quoted as saying, "It’s an interesting story. I met the VP of casting (ABC) who is Kelly Lee, at a common friend’s party and I left back for India to finish shooting. She met my manager and they started talking about me doing this. She flew to India while I was filming a movie, hung out with me on set, sold and talked to me and pitch doing TV here (in America). I was a little skeptical, I’ll be honest, because it’s such a long commitment, so many years. I’m still doing the movies and I wanna be able to balance both. So she said, ‘just come, read the pilot, see how you feel.’ I read 26 pilots for this pilot season. Quantico was my favourite and so was the Muppets – but I was told Miss Piggy won’t allow anyone else on her show. So, I went in for the audition – it worked for them, it worked for me and BAM! Here we are!"
Wow, we must say we are truly proud of you, our desi girl!
