She’s a powerhouse producer, and we are thrilled to collaborate with her for years to come.” Said the head of the Amazon Studio, Jennifer Salke. Through a post on social media, the Indian actress thanked Jennifer and her entire team “for being such great partners, and for sharing in the belief that talent and good content knows no boundaries.”
From working in Quantico as the lead character to starring in The Sky is Pink, Chopra Jonas’s reach is global and through this deal her ability to represent global content will be massive. “Priyanka’s willingness to challenge the status quo is exactly what global audiences are crying out for, and for this reason alone, she is one of the most unique talents in the landscape right now.” Adds her longtime manager Anjula Acharia in an exclusive interview with Variety.
The ‘Mary Kom’ actor is punching her way through global cinema and even wrote about her inspiration for wanting to produce and work in films that not only entertain but also change perspectives and open minds. “as a storyteller, my quest is to constantly push myself to explore new ideas that not only entertain but most importantly, open minds and perspectives. Looking back on my 20-year career, nearly 60 films later, I hope that I’m on my way to achieving that.” She wrote
As the deal is global, the star is set to work with both Hindi and English languages wanting to tell stories and work with creators from an array of places around the world. “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. 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,”
Priyanka Chopra is currently working on two projects with Amazon Prime that were signed before the deal and is currently shooting for the ‘Matrix 4’ which was stopped for a while due to the ongoing pandemic.
