Actor Priyanka Chopra dined with the US President Barack Obama at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday night.

She posted a picture of her with the Obamas on Instagram today and wrote, “Lovely to meet the very funny and charming @barackobama and the beautiful @michelleobama. Thank you for a lovely evening. Cannot wait to start working on your girls education program.”

She was invited to the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner with the US President Barack Obama and the First Lady Michelle Obama.

The 33-year-old actor, who found global recognition with her character Alex Parrish in the American TV series “Quantico”, was earlier “not sure” about attending the dinner due to her work commitments.

Among the film and television performers at the event were Oscar winners Helen Mirren and Jared Leto, “Breaking Bad” actor Bryan Cranston, “Independence Day” stars Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum, actress Rachel McAdams, and “Night Manager” miniseries star Tom Hiddleston.

The non-profit White House Correspondents’ Association, whose members include the reporters, producers, camera operators and other journalists regularly covering the White House, traditionally hosts this annual dinner to raise money for journalism scholarships.

 

Priyanka took to Twitter to share about her meeting with the Obamas.

“Lovely to meet the very funny and charming @barackobama and the beautiful @flotus. Thank you…,” she wrote along with a picture.
At the Washington-insider event, attended by journalists, celebrities, politicians and advertisers, Obama did not hold back and he took jibes at Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, CNN’s Jake Tapper among others.

The 2016 White House Correspondents’ dinner, which was President Obama’s last in office, was hosted by comedian Larry Wilmore.
