'I Am The Female Jason Bourne, But Not The Messiah For Indian Actors in the West': Priyanka Chopra

Is Pee Cee taking her special agent role too seriously?

If Priyanka Chopra had an idea about her nomination in the VH1 2015 Europe Music Awards, she could have feigned surprise in her latest interview in Los Angeles. But then, she is a clever actress, singer, television artiste par excellence and the list could go on and on. She has collaborated with DMX-Nasa on her latest single, "Meltdown," and has been nominated alongside Taylor Swift, James Reid, Ed Sheeran and Ruby Rose, reported an article in mumbaimirror.com. 

The nomination is a pleasant surprise. I've been such a bad mother to my music," she said to Mirror. "I've ignored it for so long, juggling it between my films and Quantico. Once all this settles down, I'll be able to focus on it more." 

The actress says about her successful stint as an FBI agent in Quantico, "I was clear that I wanted a part that matched my Bollywood status. And I didn't want to see anyone on TV who looked like me," she explains. "Quantico is quintessential TV. I'm the female Jason Bourne or Jack Bauer. But I'm not the torchbearer or messiah for Indian actors in the West. If something that I do helps other Indian actors to be taken seriously, that would be great." 
 
She also says quite matter-of-factly, "They're calling me the next big thing, but I don't know what that means for me. I don't know if I am ready for the big, bad world of Hollywood."
 
We surely think she is ready, don't we?
