Priyanka Chopra is heading back to India because as the brand ambassador of Assam Tourism she has to shoot a new campaign. Interestingly, the state government has opened the gates of Kaziranga National Park for the shoot.
According to Midday, after her arrival in Assam on Saturday, Priyanka Chopra kickstarted the shoot in the tea gardens of Jorhat. She even did an impromptu Bihu dance during her visit to one of the schools there. The unit is essentially shooting her experiences as she visits the different parts of the state and will eventually cull out the best portions from the footage.

The decision to shoot in the otherwise restricted area of Kaziranga National Park was spurred by the backlash it faced over the BBC documentary, which claimed that the guards in the park follow a ‘shoot-at-sight’ policy to discourage poaching. “The ad has been structured in such a way that it shows the park as a haven for wild animals. The permission to film at Kaziranga has been sanctioned by the Tourism Board. Special guidelines are being followed; a 10-member-strong crew will have to finish the shoot in two hours.
