Priyanka, who has been endlessly trumpeted as the first South Asian to occupy the top role in a major network drama's cast, continued: 'Bringing Alex to life has challenged me physically and emotionally, but even more significant it has (I hope) cracked the door open for female talent and women of color to play leading ladies.'

Thank you to the cast and crew of #Quantico for being such an amazing team to work with, for all the memories that I will cherish...memories of laughter, of learning new things, of making friends for life.'
She graciously closed out her caption: 'It was a pleasure working with each and every one of you, and I look forward to crossing paths again!'
The message was accompanied by a throwback snap of an ad for Quantico splashed across the side of a building in Los Angeles.

As engagement chatter continued, Priyanka's Fashion co-star Kangana Ranaut told Asian News International: 'I spoke to Priyanka the other day, and I congratulated her, and she responded in a very, you know, sort of a - she seems excited and very happy.'
Kangana dished further that 'I get very happy and excited with weddings and engagements,' calling Priyanka 'a very close friend, very dear friend.'
Before the engagement rumors began circulating, Priyanka had been publicly running around with 25-year-old Nick since this May.
The pair went so far as to travel in June to Bombay - Priyanka's part-time home and the nexus of Bollywood - where Nick met her mother Madhu.
'There were 10-odd people, so I didn’t get the time to know him that well. I’ve met him for the first time, so it’s too early to form an opinion,' she explained.
Priyanka and Nick also swung by a swank pre-engagement party for Akash Ambani, son of business tycoon Mukesh Ambani, the wealthiest person in India.
