Priyanka Chopra makes juggling major projects in Bollywood and Hollywood look like a cakewalk.

But ABC’s Quantico star, who has also been nominated in the Best Actress category for Dil Dhadakne Do and in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in Bajirao Mastani at this year’s International Indian Film Awards (IIFA), says moving between two continents for her on screen commitments has been hectic but satisfying at the same time.

“I love what I do and I don’t take my career for granted,” says the 33-year-old actress during an interview at IIFA in Madrid, Spain. Chopra will be performing at the awards night tomorrow.

“Nobody can just sit down and say, ‘come and hand me success.’ It doesn’t happen. You have to work hard for it.”

Chopra, who made it to the Time magazine’s 100 most influential people’s list this year, says that shooting for the second season of Quantico, in which she plays the lead FBI agent Alex Parrish who is a prime suspect in a terrorist attack, will begin in July.

“The show has moved to New York,” says the actress. “So you’ll see me running on the roads somewhere saving the city. It should be fun.”

She says it will also be very different from the last season because some of the cast members will not be returning for the next season. “The new season will have the same flash forward and flashback format but this time it will be about how Alex’s choices will affect all her relationships. Everyone from the cast doesn’t come back for Season 2,” she says.

Chopra also makes her Hollywood debut with the film reboot of the nine-season hit television soap drama Baywatch that aired in the 90s. Chopra plays Victoria Leeds, the main antagonist in the film about Los Angeles County lifeguards that will release in 2017.

Chopra, who has wrapped up the shoot for the film, says she was initially offered a small part but after some discussions with the creative team she ended up taking on the role “reserved for a key male villain with my own spin to it.”

The actress says New York scares her. “It’s a bit like Mumbai. It’s spirit is like Mumbai.”

The superstar says she was on a tight schedule while shooting Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani and the TV show Quantico. “ I shot Bajirao with Quantico,” she says.

“I used to fly from the US to India on the weekends to shoot each scene. I would fly from New York on Friday and arrive in Mumbai on Sunday, shoot full day with Sanjay sir and then fly back to the US to shoot Quantico on Monday.”

Chopra says she will continue to look for varied characters to keep it fresh in her career. “My filmography will reveal that I only look for different characters. I don’t like repeating roles. I’m not a method actor. I like being spontaneous and instinctive. So I create characters while I know so well that you can give me any scene and I know exactly how they’ll turn out. I know them like my best friends. It’s not difficult for me to jump from one to the other.”

She says she has her sights sets on much bigger projects, not just in India and Hollywood. “I love Hindi movies but I also love the work that I am doing in American, so I want to be able to do both. I don’t want the best of both worlds, I want the whole world.”

IIFA awards will take place in Spain, Madrid tomorrow (Saturday). The show will be aired on Colors TV in the UAE on July 10.​


She is 33, and is a proud recipient of the Padma Shri and a People’s Choice Award – and has made huge inroads into Hollywood. Actress Priyanka Chopra has advised youngsters to push their boundaries.

“You have to be who you are. You just have to be able to evolve to do different things and people shouldn’t restrict themselves.

“You should not shut yourself and your possibilities,” Priyanka told the media here on the sidelines of the ongoing International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) celebrations here.

Priyanka, who has gained global recognition with her stint in the American TV show “Quantico”, will next be seen starring in the international movie “Baywatch” along with Hollywood stars like Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.

She will be seen playing a negative character named Victoria Leeds in the film.

As of now, she can’t wait to perform at the 17th edition of IIFA.

“I am very happy to be here as I believe that whenever the film industry comes together, it’s such a unique feeling. We take our film industry through this platform. Also, performing on stage is exhilarating,” she said.


Her journey from being a beauty queen, a Bollywood star, an international singer and to now a Hollywood actress, has been a great success story but Priyanka Chopra is not reading too much into it as she says all the fame and glory will go away one day.

The 33-year-old actress’ dream career in the west began with the launch of her single “In My City” in 2012 , which was followed by her leading role on American TV series “Quantico”.

There has been no looking back for Priyanka since then and she is making her Hollywood debut with “Baywatch” movie as its main antagonist.

“I believe that you have to be who you are. I don’t take success for granted. Nobody should. It goes away in a wink. I am sure it will go away with me also. But I am someone who is an achiever, so you just have to be able to evolve into different things,” the actress said in an interview on the sidelines of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards.

The “Bajirao Mastani” star said times have changed today and opportunities galore for people who are ready to grab it with both hands.

“Young people should not restrict themselves to one thing. They should not think that there is one thing so I should only do that.

“We live at a time when anyone can do anything, be anything at any age. You shouldn’t shut down the possibilities, you need to have an open mind,” she said.

A Padma Shri recipient, winner of a People’s Choice award, Miss World 2000, actress, singer, American TV star… You know who she is. Priyanka Chopra . But do you know what she thinks about money? Here are five money lessons that she stands by.

1. Financial independence is paramount
The first money lesson that Chopra learnt from her mother was the importance of being financially independent. “My mom always says that when a woman is financially independent, she has the ability to live life on her own terms. That was the best advice I ever got. No matter where you go in life, or who you get married to, you have to be financial independent. You don’t know which curve balls life will throw at you. Hence, you need to have the ability to take care of yourself and people whom you love,” Chopra says. Earning itself doesn’t make you financially independent. When you know how much money you have, where it is and what it can do, it’s easier to take decisions.

2. First save, then spend
“This habit of saving first and then spending was inculcated even before I started earning—when I used to get my pocket money. I used to save my pocket money. I am not a miser. In an everyday situation, I am like an ant. I keep putting money aside because I know that if I want to splurge, there is a big mountain of money that I can use which gets accumulated,” says Chopra.

One must always save a part of what one earns. The target need not be very high target in the beginning. The equation should always be income minus savings is equal to expenses. You can do this by putting your savings on auto-pilot by letting a fixed amount be invested every month.

3. Seek professional advice
Chopra is among the busiest stars in the Indian film industry. Since her work leaves her with little extra time, she depends on a team to manage her finances. “I have a good team who takes care of all of that. I leave it to the people who actually know what they are doing. I have a really amazing team, which includes my business managers over there (in the US) and over here (in India). My mom heads it. So, I don’t even get into the nitty-gritties,” says Chopra.

The money that you earn and save needs to be managed productively. So, if you don’t have time or don’t understand money management, seek professional help. Your financial planner or adviser will not only help you make appropriate investment decisions but also reset the financial discipline that you need to achieve your goals. A dedicated financial adviser whom you trust can bring clarity and stability to your money life.

4. Be regular
Be it your studies, career, or investment, your efforts need to be consistent to get results. “If you consistently ace every exam or every test you take, you will keep on getting A+. If you study for all small tests, and get an A+ for all, eventually you will come first in class. Anything you do, you can’t lower your standards; eventually you will win. The plan is not the big win; the plan is winning today, right now,” says Chopra. Incremental investments need to be made regularly. To grow wealth, money needs to be added bit by bit. Be disciplined in investing. Besides keeping money aside consistently, take a relook at investments when needed.

5. Keep track of your money
In the initial days of her career, Chopra used to keep track of her money by jotting down details in a diary. “Initially, mom and I used to have a little diary where we would write what is coming in and what is going out just to keep track because there are months where you get a lot of money and then there are months where you get nothing. So you have to be able to make sure that you even-out for the entire year. This was especially so in the beginning for me,” shares Chopra. Whether you have a regular income or not, begin with writing down all expenses. You could use a diary, and Excel sheet or even apps. If you track your cashflow, you will be able to track down unnecessary expenses.


First, I’m still accepting videos for the first part until June 25th so get them to me as soon as possible!

For the second part of the Birthday Project, I’ve had this idea brewing in my head for a long time but held off on it cause I wasn’t sure if I would be able to give it to her. Now, that Priyanka will be in NYC before her birthday I’m going to go ahead with it. We all know Priyanka misses home when she’s away and 10 months is a long time to be gone, so I wanted to do something nice for her.

I thought of making a photo mosaic with the Indian Flag. Don’t know what a mosaic is? It’s one large image made up of many smaller images (see example below). How will this work exactly? I’ll be using icon photos of everyone who follows the site on twitter. You must be following by June 30th in order to be included. If you do not wish to be included just send me a tweet or dm and I will remove your icon. If you have Priyanka as your DP and want me to use your own picture then dm me, otherwise I’ll just use whatever default picture you have.

To see an example of what the finished product will look like click here. (just picture the Indian Flag). I’ll give it to her next month when she’s in NYC filming.

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has released details for ‘Quantico: The Complete First Season,’ available to own on DVD on September 13, 2016 and now available for pre-order.

Television’s most riveting mystery unfurls against a backdrop of steamy seduction, maddening conspiracies and nerve-shattering suspense in ABC’s Quantico – The Complete First Season.

People’s Choice Award winner Priyanka Chopra stars as Alex Parrish, one of a diverse group of young recruits at the FBI Quantico Base. Despite intriguing personal secrets and complicated pasts, Alex and her fellow ‘NATs’ (New Agents In Training) are the best, brightest, most thoroughly vetted candidates in the U.S., so it seems impossible that one of them could be a traitor. However, when Alex is framed for masterminding the most lethal attack on New York City since 9/11, she must race against time – and betray her closest friends and colleagues – to somehow identify the real culprit and prevent further carnage… because the bomber appears to be working from inside the Bureau.

Anything new on Quantico Season 2? —Barb
Producers are on the prowl for an African-American actress in her late 20s to play a new agent summed up as “Jessica Jones by night, Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty by day.” Lydia (the character’s tentative name) is described as a “sharp and sexy” prodigy who will do whatever it takes to get what she wants in the field. She also speaks multiple languages including, presumably, the language of luhrve.


A worldwide sensation, Indian actress and singer Priyanka Chopra has finally staked her claim in the United States with Quantico, the hit ABC drama about recruits in the FBI Academy. As Alex Parrish, Chopra plays a promising agent whose world is turned upside down when she’s framed for a large-scale terrorist attack on New York City. The show feels like a mix between Homeland and Grey’s Anatomy and probably would have a place in ABC’s TGIT lineup if it weren’t for the fact that it’s not a Shonda Rhimes production.

While it’s not always easy for international stars to break into the U.S., for Chopra, the toughest transition has been going from film to TV work. The hours have been grueling, filming a 22-episode order, in addition to mastering an American accent that blends her Indian heritage with her character’s upbringing in Los Angeles, California. Oh yeah, and she also does all her own stunts, with the scars and bruises to prove it. “I wear them like a badge of honor,” Chopra says.

Though, the toughest thing Chopra may have mastered is maintaining an emotional balance amid all the show’s many twists, not getting lost in “shocka” (as she calls it) of it all. One particular scene this season saw one of Alex’s fellow FBI recruits killed in a surprise twist, sending Chopra’s character running as she lost all sense of composure. “That was a very organic scene. We had no lines, just direction,” she recalls. “So, it was very gratifying as an actor.”

“I’ve very fortunate to play a character that has moments like that,” Chopra adds.

The success of the show has quickly made Chopra, who recently won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actress in a New TV Series, a household name as ABC has practically made her the face of the network. “You know, I never really thought about it until it happened,” the 33-year-old actress says of representing the network, alongside its more established stars like Ellen Pompeo and Kerry Washington. And the fact that she’s Indian is not lost on her: “To get this kind of platform and opportunity, it feels really humbling, I have to be honest.”

Of course, there’s no settling into complacency for the actress. In addition to a second season, Chopra has been cast opposite Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as the (undoubtedly sexy) villain, Victoria Leeds, in the film adaptation of Baywatch. “She’s a b***h in couture,” she says.

While she doesn’t choose her work based on its location, she’s trying to figure out a balance between Hollywood opportunities while also adding to her long list of credits in Indian Cinema. “I hope in my next hiatus I will be able to do one of each,” she says, referring to next season’s break. “I’m in the process of trying to figure that out.”

In the meantime, Chopra has her sights set on season two of Quantico, excited to see where Alex goes. “She’s grown a lot in season one, so I want to see what is expected of her,” she says, promising even more twists and turns, as if to say there weren’t enough shockas in season one.
