Priyanka Chopra is back in Mumbai. Purely for professional reasons. Albeit, not for a film shoot for sure. This time it’s a date with sports for the Bollywood and Hollywood actress.
An American “bahu” now, Priyanka Chopra Jonas has been roped in by NBA as the brand ambassador for their pre-season games in Mumbai on October 4 and 5. The Sacramento Kings and the Indiana Pacers will be playing the exhibition warm-up games at the NSCI Dome in Mumbai.
“I have come back to my hometown. I have not come here for a holiday nor have I come here for my work. I have come back because something very big It is going to happen in my city. It has not happened to date. It is hard to believe without seeing anything. NBA is coming to India. It is going to happen in my city Mumbai. NBA India is ready for 2019. Go,” Priyanka says in the campaign video, produced by the NBA.
