During an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Priyanka Chopra who by then was already living in the US for almost two years, addressed her accent.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas turns 39 today and has successfully made a place in the film industry for herself.

With projects like Quantico and Baywatch as well as upcoming ones like Citadel and Matrix 4, Priyanka is making waves more than ever.

Elaborating on her accent struggle, Priyanka called it a "global" one. She said, "Listen, people think my accent is so confused and so am I. I'm not sure anymore what it is. It's a global accent. "
She added (laughing), "After I came back from America to India, I had a really American accent." When asked if she had a Boston accent, PeeCee said, "I did go back to India. I studied in Queens, New York as well.. so I actually had a New York accent when I went back. I would be like, "Can I have some covefee" or "I'm staying with my sista."
For the unversed, ever since her marriage to Nick Jonas, Priyanka has moved to the US and has made it her home base. For the last few months, she spent majority of her time in London working on various projects due to travel restrictions.
