I wonder though that many Indian actors have tried breaking into Hollywood . Even Bollywood actresses who attend Cannes etc. How interested is the western media in them? Is this exposure hyped in India? Many western fashion websites I have seen don't even show pictures of Sonam/Ash etc. So while India is represented globally, is it also appreciated in the West to the extent that the Indian media portrays it to be?

Till date, I don't understand why the Indian heroines are SO hyped when they get to Cannes, when they're not even starring in any of the featured movies? What is actually their purpose of being there?

I think Indians are appreciated abroad, but in the same way as portrayed by Indian media.

How so...Are Indians, Chinese, etc. living in America not American all of a sudden? To be American, one must be white? 

As an Indian, I am proud to say Priyanka Chopra is from my country and I think its time we stop being condescending towards our own culture. 

All I see on the thread of Quantico's trailer on IF is hate on her accent (which sounds absolutely fine, I can assure you as a North American). Her "Exotic" music video too has around 65 million views on YT and it was a great song! Yet all I saw on IF and specifically from Indian users on YT was hate while people from around the world, be it white, yellow, black, or red were praising her looks, the video, and her voice. So lets not characterize people...Us Indians tend to be the most abashed towards our own nationality. Unsurprisingly, her WORST critics seem to be her OWN people. 

I think its her efforts and hard work that has brought her this far. Today she represents India on an  international scale and from here...sky is the limit. Hope this Desi Girl goes places!


You are confused between caring for people in another country like India vs caring for people ORIGINALLY from another country like India but are citizens of USA. In the latter case you are still caring for an American citizen/someone living in America. Americans in general have really less idea of what happening in the world.
