Priyanka just reminded America that she’s actually a Bollywood star


Is there anything Priyanka Chopra can NOT do?

The 33-year-old actress made full use of her Bollywood skill set on Tuesday afternoon at ABC’s Upfront show, when she danced at the network’s annual show for advertising executives in New York.

Her performance also squeezed in a tribute to the late musician Prince, as a parody of Bruno Mars’ ‘Uptown Funk’ segued into a few seconds of the iconic number ‘Kiss’.

However, the performance was not without flaws. The Prince tribute lacked context, particularly since it followed a parody performance of Bruno Mars’ ‘Uptown Funk’.


This may as well be a Bollywood award show!

Priyanka kicked off the show with an act that introduced the new ABC tagline. After getting a cryptic message about ‘The End of Entertainment as We Know It’, she interrogates some ABC prime time stars, only to find out ‘It All Begins With ABC’, that is, the new tagline. She then launched into her dance performance, where only seconds were devoted to the Prince tribute. It all makes the tribute seem quite perfunctory.

Still, Priyanka pulled off a thrilling performance. The song-and-dance was quite alien to her American audience, so she made sure to quip during her act, “In India we always start important events with a dance party.”
