""I'm very grateful to ABC for casting me in Quantico."
Bollywood and now Hollywood’s favourite girl, Priyanka Chopra, has recently taken over Esquire’s magazine with hot new snaps from a recent bikini shoot!
Shot at her home in Montreal, the Quantico star shows off her toned body in a delicately made navy bikini, varying to a sultry black lacy underwear set.
With the title to their shoot, ‘A Woman We Love – For so many reasons’, Priyanka has been sure to make a success for herself in America, having been selected to shoot for Esquire’s, a men’s fashion magazine.
The pictures show off Priyanka’s naturally bronzed bod, with her voluminous hair and toned muscles, snapped in and out of her home pool.
Speaking directly to Esquire, Priyanka tells of her culture and what it means to be a Bollywood celebrity:
“I’m proud of being Indian, but I don’t think I need to be labeled based on where I am from.
“By saying ‘Bollywood’—first of all, we’re not an offshoot of Hollywood, we’re the Indian film industry that produces a tremendous array of films every year.”
Speaking of her role in hit US sitcom, Quantico, Priyanka says:
“I’m very grateful to ABC for casting me in Quantico. It was based on my merit, not on my ethnicity.
“The part wasn’t written for an Indian girl, it was just written for an ass-kicking, mess of a girl, and I happen to portray her best.”
Priyanka latest film project is the remake of US television show, Baywatch, starring alongside Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson. She tells Esquire:
“I was a huge Baywatch fan growing up. So it’s so exciting to be a part of this film. And I get to play the villain, which I haven’t done before.”
Priyanka’s latest film Baywatch will be released in the US in May 2017. For now you can catch PC on Sunday nights in Quantico.
