Priya Anjali Rai worked as a swimwear and a fashion model prior to working in the po*nographic industry. She also worked as a stripper for about 12 years prior to appearing in po*nographic films. Priya Rai started her career in adult film industry in 2007 at the age of 29.

Wondering how Priya Rai first discovered her p*rn star potential? Well, it all started when she attended some parties in Phoenix. It was here that she met several ad*lt movie professionals who provided her with the necessary connections to travel to Los Angeles and meet with her agent. Priya has discussed these early years in greater detail;

“I was a dancer for fourteen years. It’s how I raised my children and bought my house and everything…It wasn’t much of a progression honestly. I had gone to a couple of parties in Phoenix and that’s where Jenna Jameson used to be based out of. I knew the whole crew when Jenna was all huge and everything. I was at one of the parties and I’m talking to this guy and I was telling him about how I was considering trying to do some acting. He told me I looked like a porn star but I had never considered that. I met a lot of the right people and the next thing you know I was being flown out to Los Angeles to meet with my agent”.

Over the years she has emerged as one of the most popular Indian performers of all time. She said;

“Well, I was never a porn watcher so when I went on set I just did what I did. I wasn’t trying to be anybody else. I couldn’t if I wanted because I had nobody to reference. I think the fact that I am Indian probably played a small part. You have a girl like Sunny Leone but she doesn’t do guys and I started out hardcore doing men…it’s so much fun. I’ve had so many opportunities because of my job. I met amazing people. I learned a lot as far as hair and make-up goes. I didn’t really know about designers and stuff before I got into the industry so I kind of became a woman there, you know?…I’m very honored but it’s hard to really say too much on it because I don’t look at myself like that. I’m a very humble person. You know, it’s a job for me”.

She has loved working in the po*n industry. According to her;

“I loved working in this industry, and all the people I worked with. It was so much fun, and I credit this industry for helping to make me a name worldwide, but it’ just time to move on. I didn’t want to make this my life work, I have so much more to do. I want to thank all of the production companies, fellow performers, agents, publicists, makeup and hair people, and directors that I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work with…

I LOVE you guys and girls. Your love and support mean so much to me, and I won’t disappear, I’ll just be working in the mainstream industry now, and I’ll be doing a lot of new projects that you can see. Plus, I’m sure there’s lots of scenes that I’ve done that haven’t come out yet, so there will probably be stuff coming out. Please keep following me, and remember to keep an eye out for me. Keep those cards and gifts and wonderful comments flowing, I love hearing from my fans, you guys and girls are wonderful”.

She announced her retirement from adult films in June 2013 to focus on her mainstream career and personal life. She played the lead role of “Isis” in the mainstream horror film Isis Rising: Curse Of The Lady Mummy. Priya Anjali Rai was still touring as a feature stripper in 2014. On March 22, 2018, She announced her comeback after a six-year hiatus.
