“When Anjula (PeeCee’s American manager) told me the show was picked up, I was so relieved. Happy. Excited. Proud. A little scared. It’s hard for me to put into words the amount of pressure I’ve put on myself for this project. I’m not talking about the technical aspect of it; I love what I do … acting is in my blood.

While our PeeCee has always been a great inspiration to look up to, she’s proved herself and set a new benchmark for everyone in the Indian film industry. Here’s what she wrote in her diary while preparing for Quantico’s presentation at ABC.
“I wanted to show the young Indians out there that they can break the mold and find success among a global audience. It’s about setting goals, working hard and looking for the right opportunities.”
