New York: Actress Priyanka Chopra says people around the world have put aside humanity in the race to prove their "god or country" better. She also spoke about her Indian roots, saying she "comes from a country which has seen poverty and affluence live together in a cohesion".
Priyanka, who is scaling new heights globally, will now be hosting United Nation's Global Citizen Festival.
The former miss world announced the special news on the American TV show "Today Show" along with singer Usher. Priyanka also spoke about the importance of Global Citizen and how it affects every youth today.
"I come from a country which has seen poverty and affluence live together in a cohesion. Somewhere I feel like the world has become desensitised to the problems that are happening around the world," Priyanka said.
The initiative will be launched on July 27.
The actress, who is shooting for the second season of "Quantico", shares that "we have forgotten about humanity, we are fighting about your god is better or my god is better, my country is better or yours is better. We have forgotten about what the future is, and the future is of the world and the millennials."
Priyanka, who tasted fame internationally as Alex Parrish with "Quantico" Season 1, which will air in India on Star World and Star World HD from August 2, also feels that Global Citizen Festival "gives the millenials - the youth of today which is the generation of tomorrow, the power to say that I can be the change that I want to see".
The actress is also looking forward to her Hollywood debut "Baywatch".
