Priyanka Chopra becomes the first Bollywood star to headline an American TV series with ABC’s ‘Quantico’, premiering 27th September. The story is about a group of young FBI recruits who discovers that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York since 9/11.
She's an award-winning actress, a former Miss World, a singer and a dancer. She serves as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador and as a United Nations Girl Up Champion, and she is involved in efforts to promote the education of girls in India.
She's a social media queen, with more than 10 million followers on Twitter.
Priyanka Chopra has international cachet and a global fan base. But her star power has been relatively lackluster in the United States.
That may be about to change. Chopra is the star of ‘Quantico’, a drama premiering September 27 on ABC.
In recent weeks, her face has been splashed across billboards and buses from Los Angeles to Toronto to New York.
