When Priyanka Chopra started her journey in the West, there was no one to facilitate her entry into Hollywood with adequate opportunities. After garnering fame in Bollywood, Priyanka started her journey in Hollywood about 9 years ago. She made her US debut as a voice actor in Disney’s animated Planes. And in 2015, she landed the leading role in the TV series, Quantico. However, many might not know that Priyanka’s first-ever acting audition happened for Quantico having done over 50 films in Bollywood.
During her appearance on Good Morning America, Priyanka had shared an exciting trivia about herself. She said that she had never auditioned for any acting projects until she bagged Quantico. She admitted that auditioning for a role was a new experience for her and she described it as nerve-wracking.
“When I picked Quantico as a script, I had to meet them and they had to meet me and I had to do a reading. I had never been in a stare-out room with seven people sitting there and had to perform. It was such a weird thing for an actor to do. I mean, I can make a complete idiot out of myself in front of 80,000 people on stage, but that is a moment which is like, my hands are getting sweaty thinking about it,” she had said.
She added, “So I talked to myself, completely cliché, in the bathroom before and said, ‘You’ve done 50 movies. What’s wrong with you?’ And I went in there, did my thing, and I got the job.’”
So how come Priyanka became a part of so many hit movies in Bollywood without auditioning for any. She had revealed a funny story behind it.
“It’s a really funny story. Yes it was. I guess that’s how it’s done here. Because I ended up being Miss World, I’m just casually putting that out there, in 2000, so people kind of knew who I was and [I] was cast in movies because it made sense. And then I just ended up doing a lot of them because I guess I was decent at my job,” she said.
Well, that something for your inspiration.
