New Delhi: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who was conferred the Padma Shri on Tuesday, says she is currently busy with her projects and is unsure whether or not she would be dining with US President Barack Obama.

Priyanka, who found global recognition with her character Alex Parrish in the American TV series Quantico, has been invited to the annual White House Correspondents Dinner with US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama later this month.

The Mary Kom star expressed her doubts over attending the special dinner due to her tight schedule for Quantico as well as for her Hollywood debut Baywatch.

"Right now I am too busy with Quantico and Baywatch. That's why I am not sure if I will dine with Obama. Not that I don't want to, but I am not sure," Priyanka told the media at an event in the national capital.

"If I get the chance to be there, I will ask Obama, 'Since this is your last term, what will you do in the White House?'" the Bajirao Mastani star said.

Priyanka, along with some of Hollywood's biggest names like Bradley Cooper, Lucy Liu, Jane Fonda and Gladys Knight, has been invited for the dinner at the White House.

The non-profit White House Correspondents' Association, whose members include the reporters, producers, camera operators and other journalists regularly covering the White House, traditionally hosts this annual dinner to raise money for journalism scholarships.
