Priyanka Chopra: Hope my foreign foray paves way for Indian singers

Priyanka recently launched her second single Exotic

Highlights

  • Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who has attempted to make her presence felt on international grounds with two songs - In my city and Exotic, says she hopes that her entry into the foreign arena paves the way for other Indian singers.
  • "We have such incredible talent in India when it comes to music, voices that I hope get the opportunity that I have got to foray (into the international market)... (and it) will pave a way for lot more Indian artists to come up," said the 30-year-old.
  • Priyanka is excited about her music innings, but she is not completely in favour of changing the Indian film scene, where professional singers playback for actors.
  • "In India, our culture is that we (actors) don't have to sing in our films. It's been there and it has been very successful. There have been a lot of actors who have dabbled with singing - Amitabh Bachchan has... so many people have tried it, it's fun," said Priyanka.
  • But she doesn't rule it out either.
  • "If it happens, you never know. Someone can sing their own playback, may be not or mix it up. I don't think we should put that kind of pressure on something that has been going well for Hindi movies for so long," she added.
  • Exotic also features international artist Pitbull, while Priyanka has also sung a few lines in Hindi for the single.
