The star, who was born in Jamshedpur, India, noted: ‘I’m very clear about it. As long as people want to watch me, I want to entertain.’

Priyanka explained to Esquire: ‘To me, being an Indian actor, or an actor of South Asian descent, or a woman of color, or an immigrant–whichever title you like–being all of those people and being in America and getting the kind of welcome and love I’ve gotten withing the industry, it feels like a sense of acceptance.’

Priyanka said that for the show’s revamp, they changed from 22 episodes a season to just 13.

Adding that the show has ‘really gone global,’ explaining that ‘the show goes to about 64 countries around the globe.’

The beautiful actress says: ‘It’s great for us to be able to cater to all of that. We start off in Tuscany, we end in Dublin, and within this season, there are countries that liaise with America.’

Adding: ‘A lot of shows have shied away from storylines that hit a little close to home. It’s hard keeping up with the headlines.’
