Even though Priyanka Chopra's been away from Hindi film industry for over two years now and is busy with her Hollywood projects that include season 3 of her hit TV series Quantico, she doesn't leave an opportunity to educate the world about Bollywood. Recently, Priyanka Chopra appeared on the Late Night With Seth Meyers and talked about various topics from her acting jobs to her mother and more.

One of the topics that they discussed was Bollywood. Talking about Bollywood, Set Meyers told PeeCee that he was one of the many who thought Bollywood was a genre rather than a whole film industry.

Priyanka quickly corrected him saying how this stereotype about Bollywood annoys her a lot. She even recalled about coming across a Bollywood flavoured popcorns at Trader Joe’s. Also read: Here to slay, Priyanka Chopra slays three different looks in single day yet again

Here's what she said,

No, and that’s what annoys me so much. I mean I don’t really think I realised that when I was in India working in Hindi films that Bollywood has been reduced to a genre. When it's not. It's actually an entire industry with movies which is action, drama. It’s like Hollywood, but Bollywood is not even a place. Hollywood is a real place.

At Trader Joe's I saw Bollywood flavoured popcorns. How do you put a flavour to an entire industry? What would Hollywood’s flavour be? Like cheese burger?

To which Set Meyers quipped,

No, it would be gluten free.

Later, Seth asked Priyanka about a stereotype India has for American films. Chopra was quick to respond,

Aliens only land in like America. I want an alien in India. I want ET.
