Pop Goes the Bollywood Superstar

Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra’s boldly going where no Indian movie star has gone before. The actress has signed a deal with Universal Music Group and Desi Hits! to record her debut music album, and it’s going to have an international release. A trained Western classical singer, Priyanka is currently writing and recording the English pop album. 

"It has been a long cherished dream, which is finally coming true," Priyanka said about her music debut. "I am truly excited to have an opportunity to present my musical dimension on a world platform. This is a fascinating new experience for me and I am thoroughly enjoying the journey."

What makes it even more exciting is that Atom Factory CEO Troy Carter, who also manages Lady Gaga, will be handling Priyanka’s music career around the globe.   

“Bollywood has had Priyanka to itself for too long,” David Joseph, Chairman and Chief Executive of Universal Music UK said about the star's new direction. We agree – here’s to PC rocking the world!
