After a rushed one week stay in India, Priyanka Chopra headed back to the US last night. The actress was spotted at the Mumbai airport looking visibly tired after her whirlwind visit to the city, but managed to still look cool and casual in all blue - jeans, top and a printed coat.  

The Baywatch star posted an Instagram story expressing how sad she was to leave Mumbai and her dog Brando. 

Chopra also posted that her first stop will be New York City, after which the long promotional tour for Seth Gordon directed Baywatch begins. The Quantico star will be away from India for at least about one month for the promotions of the R-rated comedy and other work commitments. She will be present at the premiere of Baywatch in Berlin, Germany and Miami, Florida. She is also expected to be there at the red carpet premiere in Times Square, New York, on 21 May. Chopra will also make TV talk show appearances alongside her cast, which includes Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario. 

The actress will also fly off to Johannesburg, South Africa in the middle of all this. PC is the special guest at the UNICEF gala being held in the South African city on 6 May, to raise donations for children affected by "adverse socio-economic conditions". "Priyanka will be the headline guest at the Gala, which looks set to be a sophisticated evening," reports Marie Claire, South Africa. 

While in India, Chopra had a choc-a-bloc schedule. She partied with her close friends, threw a big bash for her friends from the film fraternity, celebrated the national award win of her Marathi film Ventilator with the cast and crew, attended a fan event, held a press conference for the promotion of Baywatch and gave several interviews. All this in a matter of only seven days. 

The actress will be in the US for a month, but is unsure about where she will be in June. "I don't know where I will be after that (post her US visit). I should know in about 15 days or so," said the actress, whose schedule post Baywatch release depends entirely on whether her TV show, Quantico, gets renewed for the third season or not. The actress has given her nod to three Hindi films - the Kalpana Chawla biopic and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gustakhiyaan are rumoured to be among them. Chopra will announce her new projects only once her dates are locked. 

Chopra will be seen playing the villain, Victoria Leeds, in Baywatch, which will be released in the US on 25 May and on 2 June in India.
