Desi girl in India: Here's what Priyanka Chopra has been up to since she got here

Dressed in a white hooded jacket and black jeans-and-tee, Priyanka Chopra landed in Mumbai on May 27, after having wrapped the shoot for her film Baywatch in which she stars with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Zac Efron, among others.

As she arrived at Mumbai Airport with Quantico co-star, and friend Yasmine Al Massri aka Jaz, Priyanka's first words were, "Baywatch ki shooting khatam ho gayi hai! Aage ki film main yahan decide karungi (Baywatch shoot is done, I'll decide my next films here).

She also tweeted about returning home, in typical desi style:

So what brings Priyanka Chopra to India?

Warm welcome

According to this Mumbai Mirror article, Priyanka was welcomed by fans at the airport with flowers and baloons. "They had their mobile phones ready for a selfie. She had warned Jaz to expect this and held her hand guiding the way. The two gracefully posed for the shutterbugs and she even shook hands with the gathered media, happy to be speaking in Hindi again," a source informed Mumbai Mirror.

Ads and endorsements

According to this Deccan Chronicle report, Priyanka will spend the month in India mostlu shooting for several endorsements, as she has been signed on for 24 advertising campaigns. It is estimated that she will make close to 100 crores for the same.

She returns to the US later to start shooting for season two of Quantico. 

Bollywood or Bond?

Apart from her endorsements, Priyanka is also expected to hear a few script narrations, and decide on her next Bollywood film(s). However, if this Filmfare report is to be believed, she will be annoucing her next Hollywood feature film and it is not going to be a Bond film. But nothing has been confirmed so far (fingers crossed).

Beyond work

The first thing that Priyanka Chopra treated her friend to was Ghar ka khaana, made by her mom Madhu Chopra. She has planned a Mumbai darshan for Jaz, including Siddhivinayak Temple and Haji Ali. She's also reportedly promised her a taste of Mumbai chaat. While Jaz is on a 10-day vacation, and will return to New York soon, Priyanka has a packed itinerary.

Here's what she posted on her instagram as soon as she landed in India:
