In an interview the 33-year-old 'Quantico' actress said that during her school days in the USA she used to look up to Gellar as Buffy from 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'.
"When I was in high school in America, I didn't see anyone, who looked like me hardly ever. I just thought that was normal because you don't know any better. So I used to idolise so many other people, like Sarah Michelle Gellar on 'Buffy.'
"But when I went back to India at age 17 and started travelling for work, that was when I slowly realised that we don't all look like one person," Priyanka said.
Gellar, 39, who was touched by the praise, took to Twitter to thank the "Baywatch" actress.
"@priyankachopra I love watching you (and all that you represent) so you can imagine how honoured I was at the mention," she wrote.
Priyanka replied back to the "Cruel Intentions" star thanking her for helping her overcome tough times.
"Thank you for the kind words @SarahMGellar Buffy got me through some rough years in high school. Much love. @latimes," she tweeted.
