Besides a successful career in showbiz, Priyanka Chopra actively promotes social causes such as health, education and women's rights and the actor said she would love to take a plunge into politics in future.

The actress-singer, while speaking to The Sunday Times in an exclusive interview, spoke about these things she had never talked about.

The "Quantico" actor said she has political aspirations for husband, singer Nick Jonas and would back him for running for the office of US president.

"I don't like the things associated with politics... but I know that both of us really want to make a change. Never say never," Chopra, 36, told The Sunday Times.

The actor-producer said she has tried to steer clear of expressing political affiliations as she likes to "cheer for humanity". Chopra said Jonas, 26, would be a great leader.
