There are reports that she will do a film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali but nothing is announced. Priyanka is the first actress from India to have made it big in Hollywood. In fact, one can't think of any actress from Asia who was a success in Hollywood.

In America

Priyanka studied for some time in America attending schools in Newton, Massachusetts, and Cedar Rapids, Iowa with a short stint in Queens in New York.

She returned to India and entered the Miss India contest. She went on to win the "Miss World" title in 2000. She entered Bollywood and after some inconsequential roles blossomed out into a top star. She got her break in American showbiz with the main role in the TV serial "Quantico." There was no looking back for her after that, and now she has cemented her place in American TV and films.
