Mumbai: Actress Priyanka Chopra has been invited to her hometown Bareilly by the city`s mayor, ahead of the release of her first music single ‘In my city’ and her film ‘Barfi!’.

The mayor of Bareilly and the people there are very proud of the 30-year-old, who is making her international debut with the song.

Her song ‘In my city’ will be launched Sep 13 as part of ‘Thursday Night Kickoff’, a pre-game show for NFL Network`s Thursday Night Football. While her film ‘Barfi!’, in which she has essayed the challenging role of an autistic girl, hits the screens just a day later, Sep 14.

The former Miss World was anyway planning a visit to Bareilly to seek the blessings of her elders, but the invitation has made it all the more special for her, said a source.

Priyanka is very close to her family and even sports a "Daddy`s lil girl" now. So, even though she stays in Mumbai now, people in Bareilly feel connected to her.
