The list of red carpet events that Priyanka Chopra has been wowing the West with, just got bigger.

After her much-talked-about turn at the Academy Awards in February, and before that at the People’s Choice Awards, Priyanka has now been invited to an equally glamorous shindig — the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The invitation to Priyanka has been extended by US President Barack Obama and the First Lady, Michelle Obama. However, it is not clear at this time if Priyanka has accepted the invitation.

According to a Times of India report, the actress is in the midst of her shoot schedule for Quantico and she also needs to start work on her next project, the Baywatch film, in which she features alongside Dwyane ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

However, if she does manage to work the dinner in around her filming commitments, Priyanka will have company in the form of actors like Bradley Cooper, Jane Fonda, Gladys Knight and Lucy Liu at the black tie event.

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is a party hosted by the President and the First Lady for the journalists who report on the White House. This will be the last Correspondents’ Dinner hosted by Barack and Michelle Obama.

Larry Wilmore, the host of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore on Comedy Central, will be the entertainer for this edition of the annual dinner, which has been scheduled for 30 April this year.
