Hope my foreign foray paves way for Indian singers: Priyanka

Mumbai, July 13 (IANS) Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who has attempted to make her presence felt on international grounds with two songs - "In my city" and "Exotic", says she hopes that her entry into the foreign arena paves the way for other Indian singers.

"We have such incredible talent in India when it comes to music, voices that I hope get the opportunity that I have got to foray (into the international market)... (and it) will pave a way for lot more Indian artists to come up," the 30-year-old said here at the launch of the video of "Exotic" here Friday.

Priyanka is excited about her music innings, but she is not completely in favour of changing the Indian film scene, where professional singers playback for actors.

"In India, our culture is that we (actors) don't have to sing in our films. It's been there and it has been very successful. There have been a lot of actors who have dabbled with singing - Amitabh Bachchan has... so many people have tried it, it's fun," Priyanka said.

But she doesn't rule it out either.

"If it happens, you never know. Someone can sing their own playback, may be not or mix it up. I don't think we should put that kind of pressure on something that has been going well for Hindi movies for so long," she added.

"Exotic" also features international artist Pitbull, while Priyanka has also sung a few lines in Hindi for the single.
