Dance, music is part of our culture: Priyanka on Kimmel show

From The Times of India

Actress Priyanka Chopra, who is currently celebrating her recent win at the People’s Choice Awards, talked about the Indian culture and its special connection to dance and music during her appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”.

The 34-year-old star said the reason Indian movies have so much of dancing and singing is because “we need an excuse to dance”.

“If you ever go to an Indian family, their wedding or any occasion, it will always be a dance party. We need an excuse to dance. This is different kind of dancing, there’s like craziness and drums and music. And I think, culturally that is reflected in the movies,” Priyanka said.

Though, the actress has been here for over a year since the second season of her popular American TV series “Quantico” was started, she said she would still call Mumbai, her home.

“I enjoy shooting in New York as it is really close from my home. There is just a 14 hours flight. It is a beautiful city and so picturesque. I work here, but I would like to say that I live in Mumbai.”
