Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra is well and truly taking over the US! In an unprecedented move for talent from India, the new promo of Priyanka’s her big television debut in ABC Network’s American show Quantico aired during the NBA finals featuring the Warriors vs. Cavaliers game on Sunday.
This is yet another benchmark set by Priyanka in recent times. This makes Priyanka, the first Indian face to be feature and promoted so strongly during an All-American sporting extravaganza once again. Her debut English single ‘In My City’ was chosen as the theme song for another American staple, the NFL, headlining their Thursday Night Football programming every week for 2 seasons.
With Quantico, Priyanka becomes the first Indian actor to land a lead role in a major American TV series. The trailer, which was launched a few weeks ago, went viral and has created a huge amount of interest for the show and its lead actor.
The teaser featuring Chopra sporting an FBI flag while in shackles is proof that ABC network believes that Priyanka could be their new break out star.
Says Priyanka, “I’m thrilled! First the NFL and now the NBA… it’s pretty amazing how this is all coming together. I am a basketball fan and have watched a few of the games live last year during my trips to the US and I know what a major following it has. So to have my promo air during the NBA finals was pretty special for me! Yikes… the pressure’s building up for Quantico!”
