Priyanka chopra had Hollywood knocking on her door after her trail of successful films in Bollywood, and the bold and beautiful former Miss world loves every bit of. Well almost.

In an interview with the New York Times, Priyanka spilled the beans about her intimate scenes in the series and how it was an “awkward situation when you have to do scenes like that.” Chopra, who plays Alex Parrish, the protagonist in ABC thriller “Quantico”, was shown to have sex in a car with one of her on-screen colleagues in the opening scene of the drama. But, the Bollywood beauty said that the scene was relevant to her character.

She said that the scene was essential to introduce Alex as someone who does not care about love and has a single-minded focus on her job. Further explaining the character of Alex, Priyanka told New York Times that Indian films are very progressive in the way they are shot now. Also, she said that Alex is “unapologetic,“ ”very flawed“ and ”bold.”

“I believe in a colour blind world”

The actress has been referred to as an actor of colour time and again, but she certainly refuses to be called so. She says that she believes in a colour blind world. Adding to this, she said that Alex’s character was not written for an Indian girl. But, Chopra was all praise for the network as ABC and the producers gave her an opportunity to “conform as an Indian actress to play an ethnically ambiguous part.”

According to the actress, the toughest part for her with regard to her character in the show was to master the American accent. She recounted how it took her a couple of months to roll her R’s and even say “counter terrorism” to portray an independent American woman. Chopra credits her dialect coach and her team for it.

On being asked about the theme of Quantico and her decision on choosing a terrorism drama for her first American show she said that she felt it to be ‘relevant and entertaining’

“Quantico” is breaking the stereotypes when it comes to terrorism and the political distrust that people have of law enforcement. The show addresses issues in an entertaining way for pop culture, making it relevant and a hit with the audience.
