Promotions have become a crucial part of the film industry today. Celebrities visit numerous shows, host multiple events, share pictures and videos or come up with various ‘challenges’ just so that the audiences are aware of their movie and go to the theatres in big numbers. As Priyanka Chopra’s The Sky is Pink hits the theatres on Friday, the actor not just took her venture to the USA, but also went to extreme levels during one such promotional event. Priyanka recently appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where she was in tears, not after sharing some emotional story, but after the spicy hot wings eating segment.
Priyanka Chopra has become a household name in America after her hit show Quantico and films like Baywatch. As a result, the most popular TV hosts of the country like Ellen DeGeneres invite her on their shows. Priyanka also has made multiple appearances on Jimmy Fallon’s show, and one of the highlights from that has been their wings-eating segment, that had taken place a few years ago. With PeeCee making a comeback to the show, this section returned in a spicier format.
The duo is basically expected to eat wings, but by putting spicy sauces on it, one after the other. As Priyanka and Jimmy have the first wings, they look calm and composed, and in fact, enjoy it. However, as the spicy quotient increases, the duo too are left in all kinds of trouble. Priyanka was in tears, trying to control the strong taste, by jumping on her seat, getting up and being in total discomfort.
Before the ‘Desi Girl’, even the Jonas Brothers had also come on the show and Priyanka even quipped about one of the sauces that it nearly ‘killed my husband’ Nick Jonas. When asked about the conversation of the perils of eating spicy food and his hot wings eating session on the show, Priyanka responded, “Well, I told him that he needs to do this for the Indians, now that he’s married to my entire country, that he needs to bring it home for us. So he really tried to get this. But after your show, it was a long conversation and a brutal three days. And he did me very proud.”
