PeeCee has become the first South Asian to bag the People’s Choice Award for her show ‘Quantico’. Currently in Montreal for the same, Priyanka flew down to India especially for the award.
“I can’t explain what I’m feeling right now. It’s very surreal. It’s such a huge honour and I’m so happy to be a part of the ceremony today.
Being at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, in the presence of the honourable President, Prime Minister and all the dignitaries, sitting amongst the other accomplished awardees and mostly having my family present there, made today complete. I missed my dad. I know he would have been very proud.”
And here’s what the proud actress Tweeted soon after receiving the honor.
