Quantico, the American show to be led by an Indian actor, has propelled its star to dizzying heights. Priyanka was placed eighth on the Forbes list of 10 highest-paid TV actresses in the world.
Priyanka also tweeted about the change in the plot of Quantico season 2. The show is reportedly discarding it’s focus on terrorism in light of the recent US election.
Quantico 2, which also stars Jake McLaughlin, Aunjanue Ellis, Yasmine Al Massri, Johanna Braddy, Russell Tovey, Pearl Thusi and Blair Underwood, currently sees Priyanka’s character Alex Parrish as a CIA officer after leaving the FBI at the end of last season.
Priyanka Chopra is also awaiting her Hollywood debut with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. The actress will be seen as Victoria Leed, the antagonist in the film, which is set to hit the screens in May next year.
