Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is all set to become Priyanka Chopra, the singer.
She is gearing up for her upcoming inaugural single.
Her first single, 'In My City' — from her maiden international album — was to be launched on American channel NFL Network’s event, Thursday Night Football on September 13.
But now, the news is that the actor has decided to launch the number for her Indian fans, before American audiences get to see it.
Priyanka has made a special request to NFL guys to show the song in India 4-5 hours earlier as she is an Indian.
This decision was taken two days back at the Universal Music Label office as they felt if not the release, it could show case it to the people through media, considering Priyanka as a recognised Indian star.
The National Football League (NFL) will remain the real location, encompassing the launch of her first music single and her as an artiste, representing India Internationally.
The ceremony kept for her Indian audience is to be considered as a token ceremony.
Priyanka always wanted the song to be heard in India first for her fans here.
Later, the NFL launch will happen during the pre-game show for Thursday Night Football
She ensured this token ceremony, especially for her endearing fan followers!
The song also features international artiste Will.i.am (from the band Black Eyed Peas).
Global pop star Lady Gaga’s producer RedOne has produced the album. The release of the full song and accompanying video for ‘In my city’ are expected later this year.
The actress is also gearing up for 'Barfi!' release opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
A day after the song releases, Priyanka’s upcoming film Barfi! will hit the theatres. A couple of days ago, she had tweeted: “7 days to go...for my single ‘in my city’ and my special film ‘Barfi’ Jeeeez! Scared... excited... nervous (sic).”
