Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who has attempted to make her presence felt on international grounds with two songs - "In my city" and "Exotic", says she hopes that her entry into the foreign arena paves the way for other Indian singers.

"We have such incredible talent in India when it comes to music, voices that I hope get the opportunity that I have got to foray (into the international market)... (and it) will pave a way for lot more Indian artists to come up," the 30-year-old said here at the launch of the video of "Exotic" here Friday.

Priyanka is excited about her music innings, but she is not completely in favour of changing the Indian film scene, where professional singers playback for actors.

"In India, our culture is that we (actors) don't have to sing in our films. It's been there and it has been very successful. There have been a lot of actors who have dabbled with singing - Amitabh Bachchan has... so many people have tried it, it's fun," Priyanka said.

But she doesn't rule it out either.

"If it happens, you never know. Someone can sing their own playback, may be not or mix it up. I don't think we should put that kind of pressure on something that has been going well for Hindi movies for so long," she added.

"Exotic" also features international artist Pitbull, while Priyanka has also sung a few lines in Hindi for the single.

    I love her ambition and admire her efforts. Unfortunatly her music just doesnt work for me personally. But she will always be my favorite actress.

    See this is where we fail as Indians,. Someone tries something new, we all bring them down, instead of supporting them. That is why other countries and far ahead of us, its 2013, Grow up and support each other, rather then getting jealous of them.

    i think that indian singers and songs have a desi aura on them that i really like..i am a fan of english songs as well but i believe bollywood songs and singers have a different taste and style which is soo admirable...
