Priyanka Chopra Takes A Jibe At Donald Trump On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
Priyanka Chopra made her debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where she touched upon various subjects, which includes her soon to be released Hollywood debut 'Baywatch' and her ticket to stardom in the west 'Quantico', among other things.
During the nine-minute conversation, Chopra and Colbert spoke about the former's popularity in India, her films, her high school life in the US, her confused 'global accent' and of course Quantico and Baywatch.
Chopra, who never minces her words, expressed objection to the Hindi film industry being called 'Bollywood'. She said, "I don't (like the term Bollywood). I don't think a lot of Indian actors like the term Bollywood also because I think around the world the word Bollywood has been reduced to like a Zumba class."
Chopra also took the opportunity to point out to Colbert and everyone else that Indian cinema wasn't only about Bollywood but it comprised of regional films as well. And when she said that the Indian film industry was one of the biggest film producing industries in the world, with 4,000-5,000 films being produced each year, Colbert jokingly suggested that Hollywood should be named after the Indian film industry and not vice versa.
During the chat, Chopra who admitted that she kept getting into trouble for speaking her mind, took a sly jibe at US President Donald Trump when she said, "I have to be careful of what I say on TV these days." "I'm here on a visa so, I should be careful," she added.
Priyanka Chopra has already appeared on a host of talk shows including an appearance each on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Live With Kelly and Late Night With Seth Meyers and twice on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
