Bollywood’s ‘desi girl’ Priyanka Chopra’s ‘thank you’ speech for the People’s Choice Award was emotional, but perhaps a tad too long for international actor John Stamos.

Priyanka went on a thanking spree when she clinched the Favourite Actress In A New TV Series award, but her speech was cut short by Stamos when he quipped: “It’s just a two-hour show.”

It was a big moment for Priyanka on Wednesday night here as she was being awarded for her lead role in “Quantico”, which marked her foray as an international actress. (PHOTOS: Priyanka Chopra dazzles at People’s Choice Awards, wins Best Actress award for Quantico)

“I’d like to thank everyone who voted for ‘Quantico’. It is my first year in the US, and to come to another country and actually get this kind of acceptance is, I guess, what America is all about. (Read: Priyanka Chopra wins Favourite Actress award for Quantico at People’s Choice Awards)

“So, thank you for accepting me, thank you to my mom, my manager, the cast and crew, the writer, ABC … everyone. I’m really overwhelmed,” she said.

Watch the video here:

It was then that Stamos, who himself took home the trophy for Favorite Actor In A New TV Series for his work in “Grandfathered”, interrupted the actress in a lighter vein, saying “It’s just a two-hour show”. Then, they moved on to announcing another nominations. (IN PICS: Priyanka, Sandra Bullock, Dakota, Johnny Depp: Winners at People’s Choice Awards)

Priyanka, 33, was presented the award by Hollywood action star Vin Diesel, who will reportedly be working soon with Deepika Padukone in a new project. The shooting for the film is likely to start next month.

      Omg! Well i am happy for her award but i dunno if she wanted to be funny by making fun of John but it just sounded out of place and cheap joke about the "gfather" character. From a 33 year old x miss world that looks weird.And then end what she said about her mum's joke was bizarre. Anyway i dont think was mean to herz cant say same for her though although unintentional..

              She interrupted his speech too. Her speech was rambling and they had to move on to the next segment. Guess what- there are teleprompters telling the person when to wrap up their speech. If they do not wrap it up their microphone gets cut off. They cut off an America actress' microphone when she rambled on. They did not have the option of cutting of Chopra's microphone because she was supposed to lead directly in to announcing the winner of Best Movie. Stop acting like she is a victim of an international crime and he is a villain. This article is one-sided and biased.

                      Its mean and rudeness of Priyanka to mock at JS for he won the award for his role as a Gfather. Watch the video and the rest will be understood if you have a brain.

                        Look at the video, intact Priyanka has insulted JS by saying you pla a gfather, that might be upsetting for he is an actor and he reciprocated, its not an insult but of course a reciprocation of Priyanka's action. I fail to understand why most indians get so overwhelmed by the word Hollywood. Irrfan Khan is one Indian actor that I really respect and honor him for his contribution to Hollywood and Bollywood and is a modest and a humble man, not like Priyanka or SRK who just get carried away. Sorry Indians this is a fact.

                          Oh really is that unintentional if Priyanka who is supposedly seems to be an intelligent bollywood actress as she has this pride in her head for thinking she is just extra ordinary actress par excellence by just doing one ABC show. You are standing on their soil and they are giving you this recognition and you are so rude demeaning and disrespectful to JS. I am very happy he gave her a good piece of mind. Great job John.

                                  Bollywood name is white slavery... I wish Indians had more self respect to stop calling themselves that. they seem to run after whites still. instead of improving their own movies. though I am happy for priyanka chopra... nobody in india today is a great actor or actress except for the older generation.... who are not getting roles..... deepika , priyanka, kareena Katrina cannot act..... vidya b, and some actors who can don't get movies....I am sad by our movie standards.......talent is not there anymore
