Priyanka had featured in IMDI’s most popular celebrities list.
Pantene has selected Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra as the next brand ambassador for its hair care products. The announcement makes Priyanka the first Indian to feature as the Global Ambassador of Pantene.
Priyanka is currently one of the most sought after actresses globally after she appeared in the American TV Show ‘Quantico.’ She completed her maiden Hollywood movie ‘Baywatch’ that will hit the screens in May 2017. Priyanka plays the role of the anti-hero in the movie that stars Dwayne Johnson.
It is believed that the growing stardom of the Indian actress globally influenced the decision of Pantene to name her as its global face. Talking to media after the announcement, Priyanka said she is excited to take up the new role.
“I’m excited to come on board as the new global ambassador for Pantene. A favorite around the world, I love that Pantene celebrates and advocates that being strong is beautiful,” Priyanka said in a statement.
Speaking of her hair, which gets a lot of eyeballs during celebrity events, Priyanka said: “Yes, I do get that a lot wherever I go. As we all know, your hair needs regular, proper care. With the new Pantene, one can get just that!”
She added: “Inner Strength is as important for hair as it is for life. Strong hair can handle anything!”
Pantene global was earlier endorsed by stars like Selena Gomex, Ellie Goulding, and Gisele Bundchen.
“We are proud of our newest campaign, which highlights our biggest innovation in decades and thrilled to have Priyanka represent it,” says Jodi Allen, Vice President of Hair Care for North America at Procter & Gamble.
“Her strength and confidence embody what the Brand stands for and we believe she will continue to inspire women around the world to embrace their strength and wear their confidence proudly,” she added.
After her long sessions for international directors, Priyanka is back in B-town and is taking time off to read new scripts. She had earlier said to media that she plans to do two big budget movies in the coming year.
Earlier this week, Priyanka featured in IMDI’s most popular celebrities list, making it to the 55 spot. She is the only Indian to feature in the list of most popular celebrities.
When Google announced its annual list of top searches for 2016, Priyanka Chopra came seventh in the Oscar Red Carpet Dresses category.
