Priyanka Chopra talks about Baywatch, and also why she no longer endorses fairness creams
Priyanka Chopra aka Piggy Chops is back in India and is busy promoting her maiden Hollywood flick, Baywatch.

Soon after she reached Mumbai, news of the actor starring in the Kalpana Chawla biopic began to make buzz. However, Piggy — revealing that she has finalised three more films — chose not to disclose any details of the project.

"My name gets attached to a lot of films. I can't give a yes or no to this, until my dates are sorted. I have locked three scripts but I cannot announce anything until all the details are finalised. But whatever my next film will be — I promise you, it will be very exciting," Piggy told Firstpost on the sidelines of her Baywatch event on 27 April 2017, on Wednesday evening.

If Priyanka Chopra actually stars in the Kalpana Chawla biopic, it will be her second biopic — she had previously portrayed the role of Indian boxer Mary Kom in 2014.

While Baywatch is set for release on 2nd June in India, the future of season 3 of her TV series Quantico seems a bit uncertain. This has been stated as the reason for Priyanka's talks with several producers and moviemakers in India.

When asked whether she had to make a fairly difficult choice in choosing between doing the third season of Quantico and an Indian film, the actress said, "I am in a contract with ABC that says I cannot just leave Quantico midway, especially if they want another season. So I think I'll have to choose that. However, I cannot announce any Hindi film project yet as a lot depends on whether the show will have a season 3 or not."  She further said, "I never came here with a plan or an agenda to find work. Offers just came to me. I am an actress. I will go wherever my work takes me. It's not like I was trying my luck or anything. Hindi and English both are my first languages, I just want to do good work."

Recently, Abhay Deol had raised his voice against celebs who endorse fairness creams. What are Piggy's thoughts on the issue?

"I endorsed a fairness cream many years ago, for about 12 months, and then I realised I did not like how I felt. After that I never endorsed fairness creams," said Priyanka.
