Watch: Priyanka’s apt reply to ‘fake accent’ remark on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’


After appearing on the shows of Jimmy Fallon and Ellen DeGeneres, Priyanka Chopra has not made to another popular American talk show ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’. She appeared on the show on Wednesday to promote her Hollywood debut ‘Baywatch’.

Looking every bit chic in a knee-high black boots and short skirt and tee, Priyanka floored everyone with her style, charm and quick-wittedness. She defended her love for the series ‘Baywatch’, demonstrated her slo-mo run and explained the difference between Miss Universe and Miss World. And above all, she had the perfect response when host Meyers trolled her for having a fake accent.

In course of their chat, Meyers brought up the topic of her fake accent saying, “Obviously on the show you’ve an American accent, but what we’re hearing now is put on... it’s a fraud.” Priyanka was quick to say, “This is my fake accent, my Indian accent I know.”  

The host then continued, “But I heard you had trouble with certain words in American accent.” Priyanka then went on to clarify saying, “Words and phrases.” She further added, “So I’ve come to the conclusion that there are lot of phrases in America which are meant to just confuse people who come from outside.” Priyanka exemplified by highlighting the different pronunciation of the word ‘terrorism’ in Queen’s English and its American version.

Priyanka has been trolled for her accent even before, but she always has an apt response to counter it.

Meanwhile, Priyanka will be seen in the negative role of Victoria Leeds in ‘Baywatch’ Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera and Jon Bass. Directed by Seth Gordon, the movie by Paramount Pictures is slated to hit theatres on May 19, 2017.
