Priyanka has impressed fans with her brilliant performances in films like "Barfi!" "Mary Kom" and "Bajirao Mastani." Though she was not the leading actress in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial, the diva was apparently liked more than Deepika Padukone in the flick.

She also appeared in Zoya Akhtar's "Dil Dhadakne Do" last year, and her last Bollywood movie in 2016 was Prakash Jha's "Jai Gangaajal."

She will share screen space with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the film.

Also, it has been reported that the beauty queen has been invited to the annual White House correspondents' dinner. This special dinner will be the last event at the White House for U.S. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, and several international stars are invited at the event.
