This Beautiful girl’s been making waves, and how! Not only has she got the Indian media buzzing, with back-to-back movies like Bajirao Mastani and Jai Gangaajal, she’s also taken over Hollywood newsprint with her role–that of Alex Parish–in the ongoing FBI drama series, Quantico, and her stint in the upcoming movie, Baywatch (which also starts David Hasselhoff in a cameo).
After owning the red carpet at the 2016 Academy Awards recently, Beautiful actress Priyanka Chopra decided to make an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Anyway, her 7-minute stint on Fallon’s show obviously left us wanting more, but also gave us a sneak-peek into a little Priyanka Chopra trivia.
1) She went to school in Queens, New York
That’s right. She moved to New York when she was 12, went to school at Robert F Kennedy High School, Queens, and returned to India when she turned 17.
2) PeeCee started shooting for Baywatch the morning after Oscars’ after-party
On the show, Priyanka went on to reveal that right after she got out of the Vanity Fair party-which was held after the Academy Awards-she left for Miami to shoot for Baywatch. PeeCee changed out of her lovely gown and into her rugged jeans while on the move!
3) She hadn’t walked the ramp even once before enrolling herself in Miss India
“When I returned to India after high school, my mom thought I’d grown up to be a beautiful girl so she entered my name in the Miss India pageant, which I just happened to win!”
4) Ms Chopra can handle spice like a boss!
And to demonstrate the same, she challenged the show’s host, Jimmy Fallon, to a hot chicken wings eating contest! “I’m Indian, we’re all about the spice,” said PeeCee, before commencing the challenge. And well, she went on to eat three hot wings in 20 seconds, while Fallon could just about manage one!
5) She sure loves her hotdogs!
And she likes them with pretty much everything on top-relish, mustard, ketchup-everything!
