New Delhi: Priyanka Chopra may have gone international as a singer with her new single "In My City", but the actress says she is too shy to sing in Bollywood.

"I was offered to sing whether it`s by Salim-Suleman or Vishal-Shekhar, but I was too shy for it. I used to try singing on the mic at their insistence but then I used to feel shy and back out saying `I can`t do this`. I had even recorded a song with Vishal and Shekhar for `Bluffmaster`, but the song was not released," Priyanka told reporters here.

"But now as I have already launched my own album, I can think about it. But I`ll be selective as I am really shy," she added.

The actress was here to promote her single "In My City ft.", which has also been chosen as the key feature of Blender`s Pride Fashion Tour.

The actress says she`s honoured to have got a chance to work with international artist on her debut international album.

" is an extremely talented musician and artist. It was an honour for me to work with him. We have heard so much about him, we love their music. It was a really new experience. There are other international collaborations in this album too, you`ll get to know about it as I keep unraveling my songs in the album," she added.
