Quantico, Baywatch, Oscars, Padma Shri and Priyanka Chopra is still not done. When asked if she will indeed be joining US president Barack Obama at the White House Correspondents Dinner, she said she is currently busy with her projects and is unsure about it.

Priyanka, who found global recognition with her character Alex Parrish in the American TV series Quantico, has been invited to the special dinner with Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama later this month.

The Mary Kom star expressed her doubts over attending the special dinner due to her tight schedule for Quantico as well as for her Hollywood debut Baywatch.

“Right now I am too busy with Quantico and Baywatch. That’s why I am not sure if I will dine out with Obama. Not that I don’t want to, but I am not sure,” Priyanka told the media at an event here.

“If I get the chance to be there, I will ask Obama, ‘Since this is your last term, what will you do in the White House’,” the Bajirao Mastani star quipped.

Priyanka, along with some of Hollywood’s biggest names like Bradley Cooper, Lucy Liu, Jane Fonda and Gladys Knight, has been invited for the dinner at the White House.

The non-profit White House Correspondents’ Association, whose members include the reporters, producers, camera operators and other journalists regularly covering the White House, traditionally hosts this annual dinner to raise money for journalism scholarships.
