Celebrities shy away from talking about their political aspirations but Priyanka Chopra is no coy actor. Be it her personal life with Nick Jonas or challenges in her career, the actress has been verbal about much in her life. 

In an interview with a US daily, the actress revealed that she would love to give prime ministership a try. 

The Quantico actress opened up about the political aspirations she has for both herself and her husband, revealing she’s got her eye on a run for office

“I would love to run for prime minister of India. I would love Nick to run for president,” Chopra, 36, told The Sunday Times. “I don’t like the things associated with politics … but I know that both of us really want to make a change. Never say never.”

The actress said that she tried to remain apolitical all through her life because she likes to “cheer for humanity,” Chopra couldn’t deny the fact that Jonas, 26, would make a great leader.

UNICEF's Goodwill Ambassador was recently at Ethiopia after her Cannes debut to spend time with underprivileged children there. She can actively associate herself with several social causes and campaigns before. It would be welcoming to see her take the mettle forward by being a political leader in India and using her popularity to serve people.

On the movies front, Priyanka will make her Bollywood comeback after three years with Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink.
