Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra’s debut American drama series ‘Quantico’ to be telecast on ABC network will also be aired in India on English entertainment channels Star World and Star World HD.

The ‘Mary Kom’ actress is very much thrilled about it. “'Quantico' is my first international TV venture and I'm truly proud of it. I’m equally excited that the Star Network will showcase 'Quantico' as part of its prime time line-up on Star World and Star World HD in India, and I couldn't think of a better launch pad in India for my TV debut,” Priyanka said in a statement.

“What makes it even more special for me is that it will be real-time…'Quantico' will be available to Indian audiences almost immediately after its US airing. Audience's response to our first trailer has been fantastic and I'm looking forward to working with the Star TV team to create a memorable launch campaign for the show,” she added.

The thriller series will see Priyanka play the lead role as FBI agent Alex Parrish.

An official of Star TV network said the presence of Bollywood A-lister like Priyanka Chopra who is also playing the lead character in an international TV series, makes it a special show for Star Network.
