In Vogue! Priyanka Chopra Jonas pens appreciation note for 'Madam Vice President' Kamala Harris, says 'in just 10 days America will be inherited by an Indian Woman'


Kamala Harris will make history as the first Black woman and the first South Asian American woman to be elected as vice president of the United States in less than ten days. To celebrate this historic moment and milestone achievement, Vogue featured 'Madam Vice President' on its February 2021 issue. Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who is now a resident of America, is super proud. 

Sharing the cover on Instagram, Priyanka began her note by first talking about the Capitol Hill violence earlier last week. "After watching the horror of how things unfolded this week on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, it’s promising that in just 10 days America will be inherited by such a positive example of leadership. A WOMAN! A WOMAN OF COLOR! AN INDIAN WOMAN! A BLACK WOMAN! A WOMAN WHOSE PARENTS WERE BORN OUTSIDE THE US! And could there be anything more special, as the VP Elect put it, than the fact that little girls will only know a world where a woman is the Vice President of the US. Coming from India, a country (like many others around the world) that has had several female leaders, it’s hard to believe that this is the US’ first! But it surely won’t be the last," she wrote.

On the work front, Priyanka has wrapped up the shooting of her upcoming Hollywood romantic movie, Text For You, and thanked the whole team for managing it all despite the strict lockdown measures. The actress has been staying in London for the past few months for the shoot. 

Text For You follows the life of a young woman as she grieves the loss of her fiance and decides to send romantic messages to his old phone number. In her attempt to send constant messages to her fiance's old number, she will connect with a man across town suffering from a similar heartbreak. Celine Dion's music aims at connecting the two and gives them the courage to take a second shot at love.
