Our desi girl is going places and Priyanka Chopra is now standing by Hollywood icon Robert De Niro’s side as a jury member of the Tribeca Film festival.

Priyanka took to her Twitter page to post a picture with Robert De Niro, Janet Tribeca and Whoopie Goldberg.

She captioned it: "An afternoon with the greats. Congrats @whoopigoldberg @janetribeca #RobertDeNiro on 16 yrs! Thanks for including me! #Tribeca2017 #JuryDuty”.

Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff, reportedly in response to the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the consequent loss of vitality in the Tribeca neighbourhood in Lower Manhattan.

And besides a coveted place in the jury, Priyanka’s first Hollywood film Baywatch too is set to hit theatres this summer.

Her fans, who complained of seeing very less of the diva in the earlier two Baywatch trailers, were pleasantly surprised to see an entire poster designed for her.


The new poster shows her villainous side, as Victoria Leeds stares down at the heroes of the film.

The American action comedy has been directed by Seth Gordon and is based on the television series by the same name. The film also stars Dwayne Johnson, Zac Effron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass, Ilfenesh Hadera, David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson.

Baywatch is the second major international project for Priyanka. Her debut TV show Quantico was a hit and the second season is currently on air.
