LONDON: Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra has quite a number of accomplishments to be proud of. Not only is she a household name in Bollywood, she’s also dipped her toes in Hollywood with animated movie Planes. The actor-singer, who has already released two successful singles, gave her fans a preview of the third one, which will be her first solo number.

Titled I can’t make you love me, the song will release in a few months. She shared news on the song, originally sung by Bonnie Raitt in 1991, at the Guess store on Regent Street in London.

“She (Raitt) is one of the people why I became a singer. My cover is really different because the original is a ballad and we have used dance music for my version of the song,” Priyanka said in a statement.

The Barfi actor just finished filming the video of the song in Los Angeles. Jeff Nicholas and Jonathan Craven, who have recently directed one of Rihanna’s music videos, directed it.

Chopra, who is the face of Guess, also signed print catalogues of her campaign, Holiday 2013 shot by Bryan Adams, for over 200 fans.

“Guess has always had these beautiful blonde women as their brand ambassadors and I am really happy that I am the first GUESS girl of a different ethnicity. I always like to do things better than what I have done before. That is what I am aiming at. I just really enjoyed shooting the campaign which was shot by Bryan Adams,” she said.

The actor was signed to Universal Music, DesiHits and Interscope Records in late 2011.

Priyanka released two singles, In My City and Exotic featuring Will.I.am and Pitbull, respectively, in the US and India last year.

The event at Guess in London marks her first British promotions as a recording artist, and as the brand ambassador of Guess.
