Mumbai: Ever since Priyanka Chopra made her debut on American television on ABC's new show, Quantico, she has been showered praises from all quarters. However, in an interview to Emme Magazine, Priyanka reveals that she was initially skeptical about foraying into Television.
Priyanka said, "I was not sure whether I wanted to do TV initially but when Keli Lee, the VP of casting came to meet me in India to pitch the idea of a deal. She just said ‘You know what just come to LA and read the script, if you don’t like it, you don’t have to necessarily do it’. I wanted to pick a show that I wanted to watch and Quantico was that to me. It was one kind of show which made me go ‘Wow! I would love to see this one!’"
Talking about how she landed the role Priyanka said, "It was not the first audition of my life but I was super nervous. I always knew what auditions were like but I never had to do it because I was Miss World and eventually movies just kept happening. I went to the bathroom to calm myself down and said ‘You are 50 movies old, you do not have to be afraid of going in front of 5 people and performing. What’s the big deal?’"
The actress spoke about her upbringing and her views about feminism, Priyanka said, "My dad always told me not to fit into a glass slipper, shatter the glass ceiling. Be who you want, say what you want. I was raised to be opinionated and have a mind of my own. I am a very proud feminist."
