Priyanka Chopra New Music Single

Priyanka Chopra, who made her singing debut through international music single In My City, said she had fulfilled her father Dr Ashok Chopra's long cherished dream of becoming a singer.

"My parents were very emotional when they heard my song. This was my dad's dream. My dad was not all that happy when I became an actor and won national awards, like he is today," Priyanka Chopra told reporters here at the unveiling of the album.

"My father is an incredible singer. I am happy and overwhelmed that my family and friends are here. I am feeling like a newcomer...I am feeling it is my first film," she said.

Priyanka Chopra insisted the album is Indian at heart. "The heart of this album is Indian. It is a desi girl album. We will be shooting the video soon, we are planning things about the album, we will try and add some Bollywood elements to it. I am very nervous, I am shivering a lot," she said.

Priyanka Chopra said she had never thought of becoming a singer.

"I never thought I would be a professional singer, also I never thought I would become an actor. If not this then I would be an engineer. I have never sung professionally...I never knew I would be doing it. I can't believe this is my event and I am overwhelmed," she said.

"I grew up listening to music from my parents. My father used to listen to Mohammed Rafi and my mother used to listen to international music bands like Beatles and Metallic," she said.

Her first song from the album will be launched internationally officially at the National Football League in the US on NFL network.

"It is an important and huge thing for an Indian to have this launch at NFL. It is a huge honour to have this one-and-half minute version there. No Indian has done that. It is surreal," Priyanka said.

However Priyanka Chopra is quite nervous about singing at live shows.

"I am not prepared for doing live shows. I am very nervous about it. I love performing but when I reach that level I will do live shows. This is just the beginning of my journey in the world of music," she said.

The album will be available across all physical and digital platforms tomorrow exclusively on Universal music.

Watch Priyanka sing in In My City.
