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.

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.
