Bollywood stars heading westwards is nothing new.
Aishwarya Rai tried her luck with Bride & Prejudice, Irrfan Khan is a household name thanks to The Namesake and The Amazing Spider-man, along with Anil Kapoor thanks to Slumdog Millionaire, the TV series, 24 . Next year, Amitabh Bachchan will make his Hollywood debut with The Great Gatsby.
On the musical front, A.R. Rahman won two Oscars and two Grammys for his work in Slumdog Millionaire. Now another star is off to conquer the west with her voice – Priyanka Chopra. She unveiled her first single “In My City” as part of the NFL Kickoff.
In case the video wasn’t enough, you can listen to her full single below. For me, this reminded me of the worst of Britney/Gaga/Spice Girls combined, but you never know what Priyanka Chopra and her sultry looks can accomplish in the West.
