I'm not a fan but thought the show and acting would definitely recommend better than this Dead

The trailer is so bad!!! Would have been expected at least better acting from her as we all know she can't do an American accent!

She never had an American accent.  Just because you don't sound like Abu from the Simpsons doesn't mean you automatically have an American accent.  Her accent has always been Indian.  As it is, she doesn't sound like a natural American in this show either.  Her speech pattern and flow is not natural, but she's trying really hard so good for her in that regard.

And I would have appreciated her attempt at fighting racism much more if she hadn't agreed to special make up and prosthetics to make herself look like Mary Kom.  I'm sure there are a lot of talented Indian artists with similar features to Mary Kom.  

This is bang on, I find PC's attempts to fit in & constantly state how "she grew up in America", very amusing. LOL LOLStudying somewhere, for a few years, doesn't mean that she "grew up" in that country, by that logic I've grown up in a quite a few countries. LOLLOL

That said, she definitely doesn't have a typical  Indian accent. Women like Lara  Dutta, PC, Ash, Sush do not have "Indian" accents or rather, the west, America's perception of them. 

Americans are warm, very friendly & open from my experience, and culturally curious esp if the culture is Indian but asking Indians whether they play with snakes & do they have to walk to school is probably not the best way to endear yourself to an Indian. LOL This has actually happened to me but yes, my experience dealing with Americans is limited, so maybe these are just a handful of ignoramuses.

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?

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.

Yeah they are only brand ambassadors. Also considering the population of our country it is pretty shocking at the low number of Indian movies that have been showcased at Cannes. 

I'm sure the Hollywood celebs appreciate them etc. but the western media shows very little interest in anything that isn't European/American. That's why I'm curious to know while we deem SRK/Ash to be 'global' , we are only really referring to NRI's? How many Europeans/Americans actually know them is something I am curious about!

In my experience, I have definitely met Europeans and people of other nationalities who watch Bollywood movies and like them. Not everyone, but you'll meet some who have good awareness about Indian entertainment.

I.e. I'm from the Philippines, and everrryonee here has watched and loved 3 Idiots. My friend said they showed it in of their university classes, and she can sing Zoobi Doobi like a pro lol

But I believe Indian media makes a mountain out of a molehill of it. I remember it being a news article that SRK is officially more famous than Tom Cruise, when it was only about Google stats for the month or something.

She is so fake, she needs to cut the crap and get away with this wannabe attitude. She thinks by doing all this she will do well in the west. She needs to stop being so desperate, just be yourself PC and talk wit your real accent.
Her accent in Quantico is not at all american!
