March '18 cover star Priyanka Chopra: "I am more than my ethnicity"

The Quantico actor opens up for a special chat

Priyanka Chopra is many things — fashion darling, smasher of stereotypes, and mega-star of a hit American series. Now, as Quantico returns to screens worldwide next month, she opens up for a special chat with show-stopping actor-comedian Hasan Minhaj, to talk about life, the universe and everything in between.

Hasan Minhaj: How do you wrap up after a long day?

Priyanka Chopra: You have to disengage. I have a ritual: I wash off my day when I come back home. First, I take off my make-up. Then I shower, turn on some music, and have my moment. Maybe I’ll have a glass of wine too.

HM: Do you watch TV?

PC: I love watching TV.

HM: Do you get that anxiety when you’re on Netflix or HBO, and you’re like, “What am I going to watch?” It becomes a whole ordeal.

PC: It really does! Because you don’t know what you are in the mood for, and what will be right for you. It really kills your life if you start something, and then you’re like, “Oh, this sucks.”  Then suddenly, it’s half-an-hour later, and you’re like, “I still haven’t picked something!” I have a solution to that, though: your friends and family watch TV, so you watch trailers of whatever they recommend and find out whether you want to invest your time in it or not.
