Washington: Actress Priyanka Chopra was elated to meet the “very funny and charming” US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner here.
The 33-year-old actress, who found global recognition with her character Alex Parrish in the American TV series “Quantico”, looked ravishing in a deep-cut, striped black gown at the dinner held on Saturday night.
Priyanka also shared a photograph of herself along with the two. The US President looked dapper in a black suit and crisp white shirt which he teamed with a black bow tie, while Michelle Obama looked lovely in an embellished beige gown.
“Lovely to meet the very funny and charming Barack Obama and the beautiful Michelle Obama,” Priyanka captioned the photgraph.
“Thank you for a lovely evening. Cannot wait to start working on your girls education program,” she added.
The 2016 White House Correspondents’ dinner, which was President Obama’s last in office, was hosted by comedian Larry Wilmore.
The non-profit White House Correspondents’ Association, whose members include the reporters, producers, camera operators and other journalists regularly covering the White House news beat, traditionally hosts this annual dinner to raise money for journalism scholarships.
