Episode 2.03 – Stescalade
The new CIA recruits continue training at The Farm; in the future, Alex infiltrates the terrorist group holding everyone hostage, and is shocked to learn not everyone is a stranger.








Bollywood actress, pop singer, American TV star, UNICEF ambassador, social crusader… Priyanka Chopra, who is successfully juggling careers and shuttling between two continents, is not just an international icon today but a global citizen in the true sense of the term. After making heads turn with her ‘princess’ moment as a presenter at the Emmys last week, the actress is adding another feather to her cap — she is co-hosting the Global Citizen Festival in New York today. Apart from sharing the stage with the who’s who of Hollywood, she will also talk about the Global Citizen Festival India, powered by The Times Of India, which will be held in Mumbai on November 19. The concert will see international artistes like Coldplay and Jay Z performing for the first time in the country. Priyanka spoke exclusively to Bombay Times about bringing the campaign here and the social issues that are close to her heart.

After presenting at the Oscars and Emmys this year, you’re now going to be hosting alongside some of the biggest Hollywood celebrities. You’re on a roll…
I keep setting higher standards for myself. I’m my own competition. My aim is to raise the bar and shatter the glass ceiling. I’ve always believed that no one can tell you that you can’t do something. I don’t know where I’m heading but I just want to keep walking. As far as the Global Citizen Festival in New York is concerned, I’m very excited. There are going to be some amazing performances. I’m co-hosting with Hugh Jackman, Salma Hayek Pinault and Neil Patrick Harris among others. Because of the Hindi film industry, I’ve got the opportunity to be on many global platforms, so I know my job and have trained well. What’s more exciting is that I’m going to talk about the Global Citizen Festival India on stage tonight. The concert in Mumbai will be very entertaining. Apart from international artistes, Aamir Khan, Farhan Akhtar and Katrina Kaif will also be a part of it.

How will this initiative help India?
What’s special about this campaign is that it gives people the ability to empower themselves. I think it’s important to have a concert like this in the country. The idea is to end extreme poverty by 2030. The initiative will focus on quality education, gender equality, and clean water and sanitation among other things. It’s tough, but at least people have taken an initiative to advocate to the crowd who will attend the concert. The tickets aren’t free; you will actually have to earn them by doing tasks. So, this isn’t just a event where celebrities will come and sing. That is just the reward. It’s the start of a movement.

Do you really think change can begin from a single individual?
Yes. It’s easy for us to just sit in our houses, twiddle our thumbs and ask, ‘What has this country done for me?’ Nobody ever asks what have they done for their country. Like Mahatma Gandhi said, be the change you wish to see. I believe in that. I’m someone who takes the bull by the horn — my career and life are examples of that. If you decide in your head that you want to make a change — whether for yourself, the people around you, the country or even the world — you can achieve it.

Among the various social causes that you support, you’re passionately involved in issues related to the girl child.
It’s astonishing that we’re in 2016 and even today, women are looked down as second-class citizens. When women achieve something, it’s received with so much surprise! The gender disparity is unbelievable, especially in India. People discriminate against their daughters and it saddens me because I come from a family where there was no such disparity. My father always let me do what I wanted to and didn’t expect me to conform to stereotypes. My grandmother used to tell me that I would never get married because I didn’t know how to make parathas. Luckily, my dad would tell her ‘She doesn’t need to know how to cook; she’s going to change the world. So, I will send a cook along with her.’ I hope that people start treating their daughters as symbols of honour. We should give women the opportunity to stand on their feet and change the world.

Will we see you share the stage with Coldplay and Jay Z at the Mumbai concert?
I am upset and annoyed that I won’t be able to attend the fest. That’s because I’m shooting in New York and will return to India only in December. Once I wrap up the second season of my American TV show, I will pack up everything in the US and come back to Mumbai. I am feeling very homesick.

Bollywood star turned International sensation Priyanka Chopra is all set to take over a new stage- The Global Citizen Festival in New York. The star, who recently grabbed the spotlight at the 2016 Emmy Awards, will now turn host for the festival. Talking about the upcoming global campaign, which will also be heading to India in November, the actress explains why she thinks it is the ‘start of a movement’. Priyanka opened up about her latest stint in an exclusive interview with Bombay Times. Here is an excerpt from the interview.

Priyanka Chopra recently made news when she became the only Indian actor to present an award at the Emmys. Besides that, the second season of her American TV show, which will soon go on air, is also creating quite a buzz.

Here, Priyanka talks about her Hollywood debut, and why she will never “play a sidekick”.

What’s the best compliment you have received from your co-stars in the west?
Whenever I am shooting in New York, USA, or anywhere else, massive crowds gather and wait outside the sets. They (her co-actors) find that fascinating. They are intrigued by how people find out where I am shooting. I don’t know how to explain to them that this is how it works with Indian actors. Our fans are amazing. They love us, and always come to give us that love and support. I find it amazing to see their reactions.

How was the experience of shooting for your debut Hollywood film, Baywatch?
We finished the shoot in April. The film will release in May next year. Shooting for the movie was fun. I have played negative characters before in Aitraaz (2004) and Saat Khoon Maaf (2011). I enjoyed playing an antagonist in this film too. In fact, the interesting part was that the villain’s role was actually written for a man. A role written for a guy, but played by a woman — that was a big win for me. I never like to walk the path of convention. I didn’t want to play a sidekick. I was clear about this even when I signed my TV show. I said I am a lead actor, and I am used to seeing my face on a poster. I am never going to settle for less. The same rule applies even to my movies.

So, you’re content with the role?
I wanted to play something different. Often, girls end up being glam dolls or are cast in a film just for the glamour quotient. I didn’t want to be only that. I wanted to add to the movie. I am glad that I could do that, whether it’s in India or America. I believe in choosing roles that excite me.

Apart from Hollywood, are you also looking at acting in other international film industries?
I am a Hindi film actor. I will go where my work takes me, whether it is the US, UK or Germany. My show now airs in about 216 countries. I am speaking different languages. I’m meeting people in different countries. So, it will be fascinating to be part of world cinema.

Priyanka Chopra has been kicking butt in American thriller drama Quantico, and she’s now going to be taking down Dwayne Johnson in the upcoming Baywatch movie.

The Indian movie superstar will play villainous Victoria in the film, and she gave us a bit of a teaser for what to expect.

She told Digital Spy: “I’m the antagonist in that film, and she’s a bitch in very high heels! She’s a great character, it’s awesome and it’ll be so funny. I think it will be a major global summer blockbuster next year.

“First of all, Baywatch as a brand is such a popular show all over the world. I remember whenever that music used to play, it was like ‘all go to the television’. I think Baywatch inspired me as an Indian film actor. Literally, slow motion running is what I do for a living, and I’m so good at it now!”

Talking about working with co-stars including Johnson and Zac Efron, she added: “Everyone was so amazing with me. Especially as I was being so bitchy in the movie to both Dwayne and Zack!

“I’m so mean to them! It’s so funny to see these big action-style guys not know what to see and be flummoxed. So, Victoria is delectable.”

Priyanka also gave Quantico fans some little teasers for its upcoming second season. She said: “It’ll still be the back and forth, because that’s the signature of the show. But thank god I’m not on the run anymore, Alex really needed to catch a break! Just take a second!

“I’m inquisitive to see where it will go. From what I know there will be a lot that happens between Ryan and Alex and their relationship.

“She’s emotionally stunted as a character, shooting your father will do that to you, I guess. That’s what makes her interesting, she’s completely unapologetic about her decisions. Her vulnerability is only hers to see. She’s honestly my alter ego, I wish I could be more like that.”

Quantico returns to ABC on Sunday (September 25) at 9pm, and will follow on Alibi in the UK later this year. >Baywatch hits cinemas on May 19, 2017.
