Priyanka Chopra appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, ahead of her much talked about Quantico debut…
It’s been over 15 years for Priyanka Chopra in the industry. But today, she feels like a debutante. Why? Her first international TV series Quanticopremiered on Monday. Following the premiere, PeeCee also appeared on the famous Jimmy Kimmel Live! show.
Here are 5 interesting revelations she made on the show:
Didn’t want school uniform
Priyanka revealed that the major reason she chose to go to America for studies was the no-uniform policy followed in the US. “I came here when I was 12 years old and it was a whim honestly. In India, when you go to school, you have to wear uniforms but here, you don’t have to do that. So that’s the reasons,” she burst out laughing. Jimmy also chuckled, “Oh! That’s a long commute for no uniform,” as the crowd broke into laughter.
Lived with my masi
Who did PC live with in the US? “My mom’s side of the family is here so I stayed with my mom’s sister. You know Indians, right? We travel in packs,” she laughed.
Being from India, all at 12, living a life in the US wasn’t easy. Reminisces Priyanka, “I had just come in from India and I didn’t know too many things so it was a culture shock. Every morning I spent two hours to figure out what I was supposed to wear.” She adds, “The uniforms would have been so much better.”
Mrs Tupac Shakur?
Another interesting revelation she made was when was asked about her singing aspirations. She recalls, “I have to admit this on national television now that I was supposed to be Mrs Tupac Shakur. I believed it when I was 13. I wore black for 20 days to school with my hair down. I loved him.” What happened when he was shot? “In school, you have crushes every day. But I did have Tupac in my heart for almost two years after he died. But then, I kinda moved on as a rebound crash to Dennis Rodman. In my defence, it was before the Wedding Dress and he was still with the Bulls. I loved what he did with his hair,” she said.
49 and half films
In her 15 long career, Priyanka reveals that she’s almost 50 films old. “It’s actually 49 and half because I am still filming one. Whenever I get weekends which are the only days I get off from the sets of Quantico, I fly down to India, shoot a scene and come back again.
