Priyanka Chopra’s dinner date with President Barack Obama
Bollywood actress superstar Priyanka Chopra has finally confirmed that she will be dining with US President Barack Obama at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner this weekend. She was invited to the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner with US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
Priyanka, who found global recognition with her character Alex Parrish in the American TV series “Quantico”, was earlier “not sure” about attending the dinner due to her work commitments.
Bollywood’s ‘desi girl’ took to Twitter to share the news. The dinner will take place on Saturday.
When a social media asked her, “are you going to the White House on April 30?”, she responded, “Yes, I will be attending”.
The actress also talked about the shooting of her Hollywood debut “Baywatch”.
“Ok, off to set to find my purpose. Fun scene with Zac Efron and The Rock… Going to wear my high heels and bad girl face,” she wrote.
Priyanka will be dining with some of Hollywood’s biggest names like Will Smith, his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, Kerry Washington, Shonda Rhimes, Kim Kardashian’s model sister Kendall Jenner among others.
The non-profit White House Correspondents’ Association, whose members include the reporters, producers, camera operators and other journalists regularly covering the White House, traditionally hosts this annual dinner to raise money for journalism scholarships.
Earlier, the Quantico star Priyanka Chopra has criticised Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s call for banning Muslim immigrants, saying generalising a type of people is “really primitive”. In December last year, Trump gave an extraordinary call to bar all Muslims from entering the US, including tourists and business travellers, a direct challenge to the nation’s constitutional right to the free exercise of religion.
The Bollywood star shared her views about the battle against terrorism, which is an important issue during the 2016 US presidential race, at the TIME 100 gala on Tuesday night , reports time.com.
