Won’t do another TV show after ‘Quantico’: Priyanka Chopra

Latest Update: May 2, 2016 | 139 Views

Priyanka Chopra has had a more than packed schedule since the start of her show Quantico, and now the Bollywood diva is ready to give up TV to concentrate on movies instead, after the show is over.

Indian website reports the actor as saying, “One thing, however, is clear, after Quantico I won’t be doing another TV show.”

PeeCee also opened up about her hectic schedule, future plans and her much-needed vacation.

According to website, Priyanka had been offered the role of Amrita Pritam in the Sahir biopic, which is being produced by her Bajirao Mastani director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Priyanka stated, “If he comes to me with something there’s no question of saying no.”

The Bajirao Mastani actor has taken up several projects simultaneously in India and the US over the last year, and is ready for a vacation.

“Over the last one year I have been filming Bajirao Mastani, Gangaajal and now Baywatch along with Quantico. It’s been difficult. I have been flying down to India for a day and back. After all the hard work and long hours I need a family vacation. I will be flying back next month and will be home for a month-and-a-half before I return in July for the second season of Quantico. That’s when I will decide what films to take on.”

When asked about her role as an antagonist in Baywatch, Priyanka said, “People were expecting me to play the heroine in my first Hollywood film but I don’t like being conventional. It’s fun taking on all the six lifeguards, the entire Baywatch team.”

Baywatch is famous for lifeguards running in a red swimsuit, but since Priyanka isn’t on the lifeguards’ team, she won’t be sporting the same outfit. “Since I am not one of the lifeguards I won’t be wearing the red swimsuit. Whether I wear a swimsuit or not is something you will have to wait and watch,” she revealed.

There were speculations that the actor had distanced herself from B-town due to her unforgiving schedule, but Priyanka dismissed such claims with the reassurance, “Hindi films are in my blood and my soul, I can never be distanced from them.”
