Finally, the worldwide star Priyanka Chopra is going to make her comeback in Bollywood with Salman Khan through Ali Abbas Zafar's film Bharat. It says that the Priyanka commercials were shortlisted for awards at ADFEST India in three categories - best film, best cinematography and best original music. But to the delight of her million fans back home, PeeCee has arrived in India but rather staying in Mumbai, took a quick flight to Assam, but again, not to relax but to work.
Priyanka also did a Facebook live yesterday where she answered questions about the show and her filming experience in Italy. Priyanka stated, "I've finished two films: A Kid Like Jake, which comes out in June". And Isn't it Romantic, which comes out Valentine's Day 2019. Bharat is the quintessential Bollywood movie, which I haven't done in many years.
"My only thing was them was that I wanted to play a part that was ethnically ambiguous because what happens with a lot of South Asian actors or actors who come from different countries is you get stereotyped into just what studio execs think that Indians should be".
The actress broke barriers in 2016, when "Quantico" first went on the air at ABC, as a lead character of South Asian descent, something she said was unusual as "by shear population we're one-fifth of the world".
The Assam government had signed a two-year agreement in 2016 with Priyanka to promote tourism of the state both at the national and global levels. The politicians said that Priyanka was seen on the calendarwearing a frock and not the traditional dress of Assam, Mekhela chador, which was not acceptable to them. "I'm also looking forward to working with Alvira and Atul and the entire team of Bharat". But doing a 13-episode show helps me a lot. "To all my well-wishers who have been patient and supportive, thank you for your constant support and I'll see you at the movies.", said the actress. Salman-Priyanka were cast opposite each other for the first time in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004). Earlier they have worked in films like Salaam-e-Ishq and Mujhse Shaadi Karoge.
