She maybe ruling both Bollywood and Hollywood, but Priyanka Chopra still needs to learn a few things, and that includes how to wear the traditional Assamese sari, Mekhela Chador. Playing the role of teacher and instructor -- a seven-year-old girl!

Priyanka took to Twitter and announced that a seven-year-old girl, Radha , taught her how to wear the Assamese sari. “Lil Radha (7 yrs) with her big eyes and smile showed me how the ‘Mekhela Sador’, traditional Assamese Sari is worn! #AwesomeAssam #India,” Priyanka tweeted.

Priyanka visited the Subarna Prabha Bordoloi Girls High School in Jorhat over the weekend and performed Bihu with the girls. She shared a video and captioned it, “The part I enjoy the most... joining in the fun! These young ladies put on an amazing performance for me and it was great to see their confidence and excitement towards life. This is in large part because they are in a school environment that keeps them safe. They are in charge of building their own futures...their own lives. Keeping a girl in school has so many positives, especially seeing them happy and thriving. A great start to my trip to #AwesomeAssam.”

Professionally, Priyanka has launched the third season of her American sitcom, Quantico. She has also completed work on two Hollywood projects - A Kid Like Jake and Isn’t It Romantic?

Priyanka will soon begin shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat that features Salman Khan in the lead role. “I’m looking forward to begin shooting this film and working with Salman and Ali again after a considerable time. I’ve learnt a lot from them in our previous collaborations and am excited to see what this one has to offer. I’m also looking forward to working with Alvira and Atul (Agnihotri, Salman’s sister and brother-in-law and film’s producers) and the entire team of Bharat,” she had said in a press statement. This will be her first Bollywood project in three years.
