She is seen doing a love making scene in the trailer and in the first eight minutes of the show Quantico that the makers recently released, but Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra says that she is not comfortable with such scenes.
According to a report published in BollywoodLife.com, when asked about the love making scene in the car that has been garnering news since the start, Priyanka says, “It was just one hour of shooting and technically a talking scene. More an allusion to making love and what’s happening. In pop entertainment it’s important to show it as real as it is but what can we do? Quantico is an ABC serial and there’s only so much that they can do. Of course, I was very happy with that. I get very shy and awkward doing such things. It’s not something that I am comfortable with. But Alex is a modern-day girl and that scene explains that she treats boys like the way boys treat girls, is independent and free-spirited.”
ABC’s show ‘Quantico’ doesn’t premiere until September 27, but the anticipation for it has reached far and wide, especially because of Priyanka’s commendable performance. So, when asked if she is anxious about the show, she quips, “I am very nervous, but excited too. It’s been a tough journey as every episode has been shot at breakneck speed. Content-wise it’s a very interesting character as the audience discovers with me the various twists and turns. It’s one of those shows that is serious, but at the same time pop culture and part of the mainstream.”
Comparing her character Alex with herself, Priyanka says, “Alex is like my alter ego. I am very shy in comparison, though I maybe outspoken in private. Alex doesn’t care at all about anything. She lives life on her own terms and is very courageous. I don’t think like her. But as the series progresses, Alex will be shown more and more like me. The writers will be writing more of me as an Indian girl, Priyanka, my persona and who I am.”
One thing that nobody can stop raving about is how well Priyanka has practised onto the American accent. The talented actress and the quick learner says, “I had learned Marathi in Kaminey where I had a coach with me the whole time. I spoke so well that people thought that I speak Marathi fluently. For Quantico too, I worked on my American accent with a coach who was there 24/7. It’s been quite an effort but that’s my job as an actor to play different roles. In Quantico I am half-Indian, half-Caucasian.”
