Priyanka Chopra to star in Scandal?
She signs a deal with ABC Studios and drops a pretty huge hint
You have to it hand to Priyanka Chopra for constantly seeking thrills beyond Bollywood. She’s had two releases this year and is working on big-ticket projects with Zoya Akhtar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Madhur Bhandarkar. But in a parallel world, she released another single, wrote an op-ed for the New York Times and signed a deal with ABC Studios. PC might get her own show or she might appear on one of the American network’s existing primetime hits. ABC is home to creator and producer Shonda Rhimes’s juggernaut of addictive shows featuring strong women in the lead, including Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder. And PC’s latest tweet quoting Olivia Pope might just be a hint as to where we’ll be seeing her next. Never a dull moment with this one.
