Priyanka Chopra taking music lessons!

Priyanka Chopra, who’s set to start a new career as a singer with her debut international music album, is taking vocal lessons to fit into her new role.

"Yes, I am taking vocal lessons. I have been an actor all these years and now because I am singing I had to take vocal lessons and I am doing a lot of vocal work," said Priyanka at a programme of the ‘Blender’s Pride Fashion Tour 2011’.

Asked whether she had any plans to sing for Hindi movies also, the National Award winning actress said: "Right now I don’t have any such plans. I am focusing on my international album for the time being."

The Bollywood style icon is also a trained western music singer. She recently signed a worldwide recording agreement with Universal Music and Desi Hits to record and release her first international music album in 2012.

"The album is going to be pop music and I need lot of support from India. India has a lot of talent and potential in the creative front… This is not only an opportunity for me but is an opportunity for India to become international," said Priyanka.(IANS)
