Priyanka Chopra Continues American Push on ‘Nightline’

Priyanka Chopra is continuing her push to take over America as she appeared in an interview for a segment of ‘Nightline’. The CAA-repped actress (the first Bollywood star to ever be represented by mega-agency American agency CAA…) first began the push with her foray into the music world. She had collaborations with Pitbull on the single ‘Exotic’, previously released the single ‘In My City’ with will.i.am, and has even appeared on the opener for Thursday Night Football.

Priyanka has recently been announced as the face of Guess over the holidays and is getting ready to drop yet another single on American audiences. But is it working? She tells the British interviewer during the segment that America is the ‘Land of Dreams’ and a multicultural melting pot so making it in America is still a possibility.

In an interesting segment surely meant to demonstrate her ‘All-American Appeal’, Indian Chopra squeals with delight when she says American burger chain Jack in the Box and is then shown with a burger in hand. Has her play for American appeal gone too far? Will she alienate her Indian and international followers with this grab for American popularity? It remains to be seen, but her handlers are certainly pushing her crossover appeal pretty hard.

If you want to see exactly what Priyanka has to say regarding her American push, the ‘Nightline’ segment can be seen here.
