NEW YORK (Diya TV) — Priyanka Chopra went on Jimmy Fallon’s Show and got a little homesick. Not for long, because the Fallon crew arranged for some Thandai  and some colors for the two play Holi on national television. Priyanka as always being the ambassador for some things Indian, has brought attention to the Indian Film Industry and now to this incredible festival of colors that is celebrated world wide, to mainstream America.  

Last year we had seen Priyanka celebrating Holi with her Quantico co-stars and tonight she graced this year’s Holi celebrations with Jimmy Fallon. 

Chopra tweeted, “This was so fun @jimmyfallon my fav part besides your shocked face after I got with you a big blob of face paint”

This was the second time that Priyanka Chopra has appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s show.

Priyanka picked a perfect sheer blue ensemble by Fendi and paired it with stellar blue heels, topping it off with intense blue smokey eyes.

Chopra has not only conquered the hearts of millions in India but has also charmed her way into the hearts of many here in America. Even her Quantico stars are in awe. “She downplays that she is the star of the show. We watch the show with her eyes. She is about her business and getting it done. I respect that. She, of course, has this huge Bollywood background. I always tell her she is so emotionally full because she trusts her emotions. She feels without an effort, and we feel her. She sets the tone every day”, said Blair Underwood.

In addition to Quantico, she talked about her upcoming movie ‘Baywatch’ which is set to release this summer. Here you can catch Priyanka perhaps slightly still in character, being a bit demeaning:
