Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra hopes her leading role in hit United States television show
“Quantico” will help pave the way for other Indian actors to make it big in America.
The former Miss World is currently the first Indian lead in a US TV series, playing FBI agent turned suspected terrorist Alex Parrish in the ABC drama.
“I can only hope that it opens the right doors,” the 33-year-old told AFP in an email interview between filming in India for her Bollywood movies and in Canada for “Quantico”.
“I truly believe that we have a huge pool of talent in India, which spans actors, directors, technicians and the like, and there is a huge window of opportunity for them to explore outside India,” she added.
Chopra has received rave reviews for her role in Quantico, where she plays Parrish, who is accused in the drama of masterminding the biggest terror attack on American soil since September 11, 2001.
