Actress Priyanka Chopra, whose international debut TV show “Quantico” has got a renewal and whose Hollywood debut “Baywatch” is already under production, says Indian movies have a “global demographic” and that she is used to having fans abroad.

She says her fan base has expanded with the reach of foreign TV, and added that an artiste always yearns for “applause”.

The actress answered some questions by fans through a special video posted on her official Facebook page. She spoke about how she gets along with her co-stars, her camaraderie with them and how she is relieved that the show is being liked by all.

On being asked about how it feels to get the kind of reception and recognition that she gets in India, in the US now, she said: “Indian movies have a very global demographic. So I’ve got used to a lot of people knowing me outside of India as well.

“But with ‘Quantico’ going to almost 120 territories – yes, wherever I go people know me from the show. I’m really happy, they enjoy the show and my work. Eventually an artist just wants applause and I’m really happy to be able to be getting that.”

Priyanka plays Alex Parrish, an FBI recruit who becomes a suspect of terrorist bombing of New York’s Grand Central Station. The show’s storytelling prism shifts between the present day with Parrish navigating her way through a class of FBI new agent trainees to the near future as the truth and repercussions of the attack emerge.

“Quantico” is back post mid-season break in India from March 12. The show is aired on Star World, Star World HD and Star World Premiere.

Priyanka asserted that doing action scenes was not an arduous task for her thanks to the training from Bollywood.

She said: “I have done a lot of action movies in India, like ‘Don’, ‘Drona’, ‘Don 2’, ‘Mary Kom’, ‘Jai Gangaajal’, because of which I have a lot of prep and experience with action, so that’s not hard. But getting to know a character, someone like Alex, that was hard.”

“Quantico” also stars actors Jake McLaughlin, Tate Ellington and Graham Rogers, who all play fellow recruits.

The actress says the co-stars have “been like each other’s support system throughout the season. And I love them. They are great”.

On getting a green light for the second season, the actress said: “I’m so excited. I feel so happy because I love the show. I think this is very entertaining, the kind of TV I like to watch. So I’m glad I get to be a part of that.”

    जब कोई अभिनेत्री अपनी अभिनय क्षमता की वजह से नाम कमाती है तो वह वास्तव में तारीफ के काबिल होता है , पर बेवजह कपड़े उतार कर , कर में बेशर्मी से सेक्स सीन दिखाना, बाथरूम में नग्नता का भोंडा प्रदर्शन अगर आपको विदेश में या विश्व में नाम दिलाता है तो धिक्कार है तुम्हारे औरत होने पर और हजार बार है तुम्हारे अभिनय पर, जहाँ तक सवाल है औरत द्वारा अपने के प्रदर्शन का तो , एक औरत भी अपने पन में अगर अपने कपड़े अस्त व्यस्त कर लेती है तो देखने वाले बहोत हो जाते हैं. प्रियंका ने वहां जाकर थोड़े ज्यादा पैसे और नाम के साथ ये गन्दी हरकतें की है मैं नहीं सोंचता किसी भारतीय को ये उपलब्धि लगेगी या इस हरकत से गौरवान्वित कोई करता है, अगर आप में अभिनय क्षमता है अपने अभिनय के बदौलत ऑस्कर अवार्ड जीत कर दिखाओ. हुनरमंद जो होते हैं अपने हुनर से नाम कमाते हैं, और कपड़े उतरना कोई कला नहीं है , टैलेंट जो व्यक्ति में होता है उसे जानने के लिए सानिया मिर्ज़ा , साइना नेहवाल आदि नाम पे गौर फरमाइए तो आप को कला या हुनर का एहसास हो जायेगा , उन्हें जिस टैलेंट या खेल की जिस विधा के लिए जाना जाता है उसी में नाम कमाई हैं | कोई ता नहीं फैलाई , गौर फरमाएं

    She is awful on Quantico and everybody I know including myself either turn off the TV or change the channel as soon as that show appears on the screen. The story is BS and the setting is low cl and her acting is horrible. Not all American TV serials are worth watching, this is one of those shows.
