Priyanka Chopra takes the word 'globetrotter' quite literally. While she juggles her life between India and the USA, the actor is currently in Dublin, Ireland shooting for the last three episodes of Quantico season 3.
PeeCee is almost wrapping the shoot of the American TV show which will begin airing from April 26, 2018. Unlike the first two seasons which had 22 episodes each, Quantico season 3 will only have 13 episodes.
Priyanka took to Instagram stories to share a picture from the final cast dinner of the season. Joining the Quantico cast was Priyanka's mother Madhu Chopra who flew to Ireland to spend time with her daughter. The castmates included Jake McLaughlin, Russell Tovey, Steve Brockman, Marlee Matin, Blair Underwood, Johanna Braddy and Alan Powell.
Check the picture out:
Priyanka's caption reads as, "Amazing time with the best people! Last cast dinner of the season. @jakemclauglin @russelltovey @steve_the_brockman @themarleematin @blairunderwood_official @johannabraddy @alanpowell10 @madhumalati."
We can't wait for Quantico season 3! How about you guys?
Recently, in an interview with a leading international fashion magazine, shared an incident where she lost out on a movie due to her skin colour.
"It happened last year. I was out for a movie, and somebody [from the studio] called one of my agents and said, 'She’s the wrong—what word did they used?—physicality.' So in my defence as an actor, I’m like, 'Do I need to be skinnier? Do I need to get in shape? Do I need to have abs?' Like, what does 'wrong physicality' mean?” And then my agent broke it down for me. Like, 'I think, Priy, they meant that they wanted someone who’s not brown. It affected me," Priyanka said.
Priyanka further spoke about the pay disparity between male and female actors and said, "I feel it every year, especially when you’re doing movies with really big actors, whether it’s in India or America. If an actor is getting 100 bucks, the conversation will start with max, like, 8 bucks. The gap is that staggering. In America, we don’t talk about it as brashly, whereas in India the issue is not skirted around. I’ve been told straight up if it’s a female role in a movie with big, male actors attached, your worth is not really considered as much. It happens in both countries, it’s just that here, it’s hidden behind other things. In America, everyone is so worried about being liable that they don’t want to say anything wrong, but they end up doing it anyway."
