Priyanka said, “I was being pushed into a corner in the industry (Bollywood). I had people not casting me, I had beef with people, I am not good at playing that game so I kind of was tired of the politics and I said I needed a break. This music thing gave me an opportunity to go into another part of the world, not crave for the movies I didn’t want to get but I would require to schmooze certain clubs and cliques of people. It would require grovelling and I had worked a long time by then that I didn’t feel like I wanted to do it.”
Priyanka Chopra continued, “So when this music thing came I was like ‘fu** it I’am going to America’.” Her first single ‘In My City’ came out around 2012. Priyanka even worked with music sensation Pitbull. But unfortunately, her music career didn’t go as planned, and she decided to switch back to acting upon someone’s suggestion she tried her hands in Hollywood, and got the lead in ABC’s Quantico. And now here she is!
