However, the Baywatch star is yet to confirm her presence at the event. According to a source, Priyanka has her hands full as she is involved with the new season of Quantico and the schedule of her maiden Hollywood film Baywatch is also coming up. Whether she will make it to the White House dinner or not will be clear only next week.

Obama cracks a joke at last year’s White House Correspondents Dinner.

“Yes, she has been invited but she has not yet decided if she will go for it or not. She will decide by the weekend. She has been keeping very busy. There is Quantico (TV show) and some other work commitments also,” said the source

While the White House Correspondents dinner is traditionally for mediapersons, TV networks who share corporate parentage with entertainment divisions wind up with “talent” at the table, according to Washington Post.
