Priyanka Chopra skips White House dinner with Obama

Priyanka Chopra chose to skip the White House dinner with President Barack Obama and the first lady Michelle Obama on April 30 along with other guests due to her prior work commitments.

The ‘Quantico’ actress earlier confirmed to attend the White House dinner in reply to a fan’s question in a Twitter Q&A session.

“The DC shindig is just days away, but the guest list for this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner is still in flux. On the dropping-off list is Quantico‘s Priyanka Chopra and The Good Wife‘s Alan Cumming. Both have had to miss out on being USA Today‘s guests at the 90th annual dinner due to production scheduling issues,” writes Deadline’s Dominic Patten.

Priyanka was to dine with Kim Kardashian’s model sister Kendall and actors Rosario Dawson, Alan Cumming, MilesTeller, and Neve Campbell, but she unfortunately dropped out at the last moment. The dinner party will also be attended by Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, Shonda Rhimes, Tony Goldwyn, and Scott Foley.

The 2016 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which will be Obama’s last in office, will be hosted by comedian Larry Wilmore and take place at the Washington Hilton.
