Priyanka Chopra to dine with Barack Obama
Los Angeles, April 27 (IANS) Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has confirmed that she will be dining with US President Barack Obama at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner this weekend.
She was invited to the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner with US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
Priyanka, who found global recognition with her character Alex Parrish in the American TV series “Quantico”, was earlier “not sure” about attending the dinner due to her work commitments.

When a social media asked her, “are you going to the White House on April 30?”, she responded, “Yes, I will be attending”.
The actress also talked about the shooting of her Hollywood debut “Baywatch”.
“Ok, off to set to find my purpose. Fun scene with Zac Efron and The Rock… Going to wear my high heels and bad girl face,” she wrote.

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.
