Indian film star Priyanka Chopra has signed a one year talent development contract with USA nationwide television network ABC.
This comes as a welcome step forward for the singer-actress, who has more than 45 films to her credit in India, 3 international singles and has recently lent her voice to the animated film Planes.
Chopra has been viewed as a welcome addition to ABC television studio's diversity casting program and was signed with the intent of either developing a TV show that would be tailor-made for her or casting her in one of ABC's shows for the new fall 2015 season.
Chopra and her manager have expressed enthusiasm in having the Indian actress become a part of the TV network's initiative to portray diversity in the media as ABC's shows are not only viewed in the United States but are also taking over the taste of audiences around the world.
Here is a 2015 toast to diversity!
