WEB DESK: Bollywood-turned-Hollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who was conferred the Padma Shri honour on Tuesday, says she is currently busy with her projects and is unsure whether she would be dining with US President Barack Obama.
Priyanka, who found global recognition with her character Alex Parrish in the American TV series ‘Quantico’, has been invited to the annual White House Correspondents Dinner with US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama later this month.
The ‘Mary Kom’ star expressed her doubts over attending the special dinner due to her tight schedule for ‘Quantico’ as well as for her Hollywood debut ‘Baywatch’.
“Right now I am too busy with ‘Quantico’ and ‘Baywatch’. That’s why I am not sure if I will dine out with Obama. Not that I don’t want to, but I am not sure,” Priyanka was quoted as saying by Indian media reports.
Priyanka, along with some of Hollywood’s biggest names like Bradley Cooper, Lucy Liu, Jane Fonda and Gladys Knight, has been invited for the dinner at the White House.
The non-profit White House Correspondents’ Association, whose members include the reporters, producers, camera operators and other journalists regularly covering the White House, traditionally hosts this annual dinner to raise money for journalism scholarships.
