During the launch of Meri Pyaari Bindu song 'Ye Jawaani Teri', Parineeti Chopra spilled the beans on how cousin Priyanka Chopra got her American accent. Parineeti was asked if she played antakshari with Priyanka, as the cousins are known to be musically-inclined.

“She (Priyanka) was very young when she migrated to America. So, I couldn’t play antakshari with her. However, I think she was around 16-17 (years old) when she returned to India. She came back with an accent. We thought it was cool to have an America-return sibling. She taught us English songs. We were more than keen to learn from her. We have sung together, and she was the first one to message me once she heard my song ('Mana Ke Hum Yaar Nahi'),’ said Parineeti.

Priyanka released her international single 'In My City' in 2012. She followed it up with her hugely popular American TV debut with Quantico in 2015. She will soon be seen with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the Baywatch film, which releases next month. All said and done, the accent seems to have come way before her tryst with the American entertainment industry.

Meri Pyaari Bindu, starring Parineeti and Ayushmann Khuranna is set to be released on 12 May.
