Meghan Markle might be one of the most sought-after names in Hollywood owing to her popular TV series Suits, but the actress is keen to feature in a Bollywood movie with her “good friend” Priyanka Chopra.
Meghan, best known for her role as Rachel Zane on the legal drama, and Priyanka recently hung out with each other and shared pictures of their “poolside biryani date”.
The 34-year-old actress said she would love to work with the Bajirao Mastani star in a Bollywood movie, something which Priyanka suggested she do.
“I would love to work with her on a film one day. I told her specifically that my dream is to work with her on a Bollywood film because I think it would be so much fun – she said I should do it!,” Meghan said.
The actress sent fans in a frenzy when she, along with Priyanka, shared selfies on her social media page. Meghan says she has become good friends with Priyanka since their first meeting and hails the Quantico star as “unbelievable”.
“Priyanka is unbelievable, she has become a really good friend. Elle magazine in the US hosted a dinner celebrating Women in TV (Priyanka was on one of their covers) and we met that night – turns out that she really likes Suits,” Meghan revealed.
Priyanka, 33, is currently shooting for season two of her hit TV show Quantico and also has Hollywood movie Baywatch to come.
Meghan says she instantly connected with Priyanka and the duo keep in touch while also trying to meet if they are in the same city.
“You know when you meet someone and you just click… it was just an easy, natural progression. We’ve managed to keep in touch via email and text and try to see each other whenever we’re both in the same town,” she said.
Meghan is excited about season six of Suits, which is set to premiere in the UK on Sunday (July 17) on Comedy Central. The actress, who has featured in several TV series like Fringe and CSI: Miami, did not anticipate the show becoming as successful as it has and revealed that she had shot for a different pilot episode with actor Patrick Adams, who is now her love interest in Suits.
“I had previously done five different pilots for other networks that never saw the light of day, including one with Patrick (we played love interests in another pilot that didn’t get picked up) – so, you just never know,” she said.
“By the time Suits came around, I was getting really disheartened with the entertainment industry and how hard it is to be auditioning all the time. I loved the Rachel character, and I wanted the show to get picked up, but you didn’t know if it would be,” she added.
Suits chronicles the lives of talented college dropout Mike Ross (Patrick) who initially works as a law associate for Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) despite never actually attending law school.
Talking about the much-awaited wedding between her character Rachel and Mike on the series, the actress said she is happy that it did not happen in the season five finale and hinted that “it probably wouldn’t happen until season 7”.
“I’m kind of happy that the wedding didn’t happen at the end of Season 5. Our viewers have earned the right to see the kind of dream wedding you’d want Mike and Rachel to have. If and when it does happen, it probably wouldn’t happen until Season 7, but that’s just my guess… I don’t know for sure.”
