It’s official. Desi girl Priyanka Chopra is attending the 89th Academy Awards this year and she took to Instagram to share the news with fans. Posing alongside Rolling Stones lead singer, Mick Jagger, with a private jet in the backdrop, she wrote: “Change of plans! Oscars here we come.. @mickjagger LA LA land... (sic)”
Evidently, she is rooting for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s La La Land which has been ruling the awards season this year.
This will be Priyanka’s second appearance at the Oscars. The Quantico actress made her debut on the Oscars red carpet last year in a Zuhair Murad creation and presented an award with actor Liev Schriber. And boy, right from her gorgeous white ensemble to oodles of confidence, PeeCee nailed it.
In fact, we were hoping to see another sultry Bollywood export Deepika Padukone, who also made her Hollywood debut this year with xXx: The Return of Xandercage alongside Vin Diesel, weave magic at the Oscars but buzz is that she may be giving the prestigious event a miss.
Priyanka became an international sensation in the West courtesy her television show Quantico and seems to have become a permanent fixture in their award shows.
She won the second consecutive People’s Choice Award this year for Quantico and also made her presence felt at the Golden Globes.
Priyanka will mark her Hollywood debut in Baywatch with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. The film will release in May 2017 and our desi girl will play the antagonist Victoria Leeds in the film. Recently, her poster from the film in red hot body hugging outfit with a plunging neckline sent netizens into a tizzy. Take a look:
Way to go, Priyanka!
