Chopra revealed at the time she was looking a way out of Bollywood, she received a call from Anjula Acharia of Desi Hits who offered a music opportunity in the USA.

“This music thing gave me an opportunity to go into another part of the world, not crave for the movies I didn't want to get but I would require to schmooze certain clubs and cliques of people. It would require grovelling and I had worked a long time by then that I didn't feel like I wanted to do it”, added the Quantico actress.

This music opportunity took her to Hollywood and made her renowned personality there.

Priyanka Chopra got a chance to work with Pharrel Williams, Pitbull and Will.I.Am on her first catch. She also met Jay Z. Later, she also tried out for acting opportunities and ended up getting a lead role in Quautico, reports Pinkvilla.
