Priyanka Chopra is one of the few Indian actresses to have become a well-known name overseas. With a lead role in the American television series Quantico, she has proved herself a commendable star who is taking up a variety of challenging roles.

In a recent interview with The Los Angeles Times, Chopra spoke of how she felt isolated as a woman of Indian appearance due to a lack of representation on screen. During these trying times, while she was a student in the USA, she found solace in powerful female characters like Buffy in Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

This shout-out to Hollywood star Sarah Michelle Gellar got the latter excited, and she took to Twitter to show her appreciation for the mention.

Looks like Priyanka Chopra has found herself a fan base even amongst the high-profile celebrities of Hollywood! But the down-to-earth actress ensured she returned the appreciation in kind with a Twitter response.

We wonder if the two will be seen in powerful female roles together, as they are both best known for.
