A few days ago Priyanka Chopra was in news for her leaked Car Sex scene in her upcoming American TV series Quantico and now she is just killing it as Alex Parish on the streets of America. Well, her posters are splashing across billboards and buses in several upmarket locations in the United States of America including Los Angeles where A-League superhero franchises like X-Men and Avengers have featured earlier.
Interestingly, the posters have just PeeCee and nobody else in it with a punch line – “The FBI’s Top Recruit is now their Most Wanted!” Looks like ABC Network believes that the former Miss India has potential to be their next TV Superstar.
What’s more, even our Baby Doll couldn’t stop herself from sharing her #GirlFan and #ProudIndian Moment. Here’s what she tweeted:

Priyanka Chopra is the first Indian actor to get a lead role in an American TV Series unlike other Indian actors who have mostly done side or small roles in American Films and TV.
Priyanka Chopra in Quantico
ABC Network’s Quantico is a freshman thriller where the desi girl plays the leading role of Alex Parrish, a half Indian and half Caucasian FBI recruit who finds herself in the middle of controversies. In this TV series there will be no Indian stereotype attached to her role.
Basically, she will be seen as an American girl with American accent. Here’s what she had to tweet few days ago about her accent:
Takes me 3 days to say “Counter Terrorism Taskforce” in an American accent!Back to kashibai soon too!I’m gonna have a BRO-mulgi Accent soon!

What the Americans Have to Say About Priyanka…
Talking about Priyanka Chopra, ABC President Paul Lee stated, “She’s a star. She’s an iconic ABC Star. We think the entire world will be talking about her.” Even Kerry Washington is praising the desi girl. He is impressed how the actress is ruling Bollywood yet managing to create a buzz in the United States much before her TV debut.
The Synopsis of Quantico
The synopsis of the ABC thriller reads as follows: “A Diverse group of recruits has arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted, so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.”

We wish Priyanka Chopra all the best for her American TV debut hoping she will kill it as Alex Parrish!
