Well, it seems the former Miss World beauty is keeping busy in the new year because her and actor Anil Kapoor will be doing a 3-day tour in the US with IIFA (International Indian Film Festival) as well.

The duo will be hitting up New York, Los Angeles and of course Tampa, Florida. Their intentions are to spread the news of the upcoming award show, which will make it’s first time appearance in the US beginning April 24. Both Priyanka and Anil are recognized for their international success. Priyanka with her budding music career and Mr. Kapoor with his hit TV show 24 and Oscar winning movie Slumdog Millionaire, the two artists are making waves on a global level.

We are very excited to bring IIFA to Tampa Bay. With the support of representatives of Visit Tampa, we have been able to conceptualize and actualize an incredible event. There will be music, dance and a whole lot of spice. We’re looking forward to giving our fans and new audiences the experience of a lifetime,” said Priyanka.

Both are delighted to be a part of the big debut and can’t wait for the world to witness Indian culture and cinema like never before…Bollywood style ;)

In some exciting Broadway news, Mira Nair‘s 2001 hit film ‘Monsoon Wedding‘ has been made into a musical and will be rehearsing for the Great White Way starting in September.  Nair has been working on the songs for the musical and said “We have about seven or eight songs done out of eleven.  We also have the book written and we will enter rehearsals in September in New York.

The 55-year old director has been one busy woman lately, having just released ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist‘ starring Hollywood stars Kate Hudson and Liev Schrieber and Bollywood actors Om Puri and Shabana Azmi along with Pakistani born Riz Ahmed.

What has the ‘Mississippi Masala‘ director been doing lately to keep busy?  Why, she’s been working on the fascinating story of eight-year old Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi, who rose from her impoverished beginnings to become a grandmaster chess champion!  The film is based on a true story and “I have just signed the deal for the film. I am starting to research and we will shoot next year. The movie will be based in Uganda.” noted Nair.

Is there anything the multi-talented Nair can’t do at this point?  Who knows, maybe she’ll decide to conquer the music world as well, one can only hope….
