Priyanka, who promoted the second season of her U.S. show “Quantico,” said she initially did not know how to announce herself in the show.

When Ellen asked Priyanka did she know anything about CIA, FBI, she says, “No, I mean we have our own acronyms in India, which is CBI, but the only thing I knew about FBI, CIA is what I watched on TV, which is like “Homeland,” and all the shows that we love.

“I did not know how to announce myself, but it gives you such a sense of power when you break down a door, and go, ‘FBI, FBI!’ in that voice. It’s really like… you feel really powerful. I enjoy that part the most, in ‘Quantico,’” she said in a statement.

The “Bajirao Mastani” actress plays the titular character, Alex Parrish. The second season of the show finds her working with the CIA.
