Actress Priyanka Chopra is busy pursuing her career in Hollywood but doesn't feel that the audience back home in India will forget her.
"There have been actors male and female who have taken a sabbatical, whose films haven't come up in two-three years. I don't think that if they (Indian audience) won't see me they will forget me. I am not an insecure person," Priyanka told reporters in Mumbai.
The 33-year-old actress won't be seen in Hindi films as she is yet. She has filmed the season two of her hit television show Quantico which is to begin in September. Her Hollywood debut movie Baywatc will release in May next year.
"I don't think I have to do a film in Hindi just to be seen. My show comes every Saturday you all can see me on screen. Even my film Baywatch will be releasing," she said.
"I don't think Indian audience needs to be reminded 'come see me'. If they want to see your films they will and if they don't want to they won't see. You can't force anyone to see your films," she added.
However, the Fashion star is open to do a Hindi film if something excites her.
"If I get a good project and if I have time I will do it. Till the time audience would like to see me I will do films. If they would not like to see me I would come to know," she added.
The actress-turned-singer revealed that the makers of her upcoming Hollywood film Baywatch plan to aggressively promote the film in India, considering the popularity of the actress.
"My film will have a big release in India. We will be getting entire cast here. Today entertainment medium has become broad. I am an Indian actor first before anything no matter where I go in the world. Whatever I am today is because of the Hindi film industry and it is my training ground," she said.
