Priyanka Chopra Jonas is paving her way towards more success and glory by ensuring to be part of inclusive projects as an actor and as well as a producer. The actress has signed a two-year multi-million dollar first-look television deal with Amazon.
Reacting to the same, Priyanka said, “I didn’t think as a 13-year-old when I was watching TV that something was missing, but now as I’m older, I wonder if I would have been a lot more confident in high school if I would have not been afraid of every other person that looked different than me.”
Chopra Jonas further added, “I wonder if I wouldn’t have put my head down and walked in the hallways feeling like a unicorn that everyone was staring at. I wonder if that would have changed my high school experience. I think it would have.”
The Barfi actress already has a couple of projects in her kitty with steaming giants Amazon. Priyanka will feature in Russo Brothers’ production Citadel which also stars Richard Madden as the main lead. The actor turned singer is also producing a reality series titled Sangeet alongside her husband Nick Jonas. The reality series will revolve around Indian sangeet ceremonies.
The actress expressed her desire to come up with more female stories with her new deal. In an interaction, Priyanka said, “My quest really is to be able to tell female stories, work with creators from around the world and create a cross-pollination of storytelling.” She further added, “Amazon is such a great partner to do that because their reach and outlook is so global. My Amazon television deal is a global deal, so I can do Hindi language, I can do English language, I can do whatever language I want.”
On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra Jonas has two Netflix productions in the pipeline- We Can Be Heroes, and The White Tiger. She has also joined hands with Mindy Kaling and is working on a wedding comedy with her, and also on Ma and Sheela.
