Bollywood’s favourite desi girl Priyanka Chopra Jonas has already charted new avenues by foraying into Hollywood, and she has now done the same again as she signed a multimillion deal with an OTT platform to pave the way for more female stories.
The Dostana actress has a two-year multimillion-dollar first-look television deal with OTT giant Amazon. Speaking to Variety.com, she 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,” adding, “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!”
The actress even took to Instagram and was all excited to share the news with her fans.
“YESSSS @amazonstudios, LET’S GET IT!!! So honored and excited to finally share this news with you. Looking ahead, we already have so much on our slate! Big thank you to @jsalke and her team at Amazon for being such great partners, and for sharing in the belief that talent and good content knows no boundaries,” she wrote.
The Isn’t It Romantic actress further stated that being both, an actor and producer, she has always wanted to merge talent from all across the world and that her aim always has been to explore new ideas and perspectives.
“As both an actor and producer, I have always dreamt of an open canvas of creative talent coming together from all over the world to create great content irrespective of language and geography. This has always been the DNA of my production house Purple Pebble Pictures, and is the foundation of this exciting new endeavor with Amazon. And 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 further wrote.
Priyanka also thanked her fans who have only known her as Alex Parrish, and wishes that they get to know her more in the process.
“Thank you to all of you who have been a big part of my journey so far. And for those who are just getting to know me, or maybe only recognise me as Alex Parrish from Quantico, I’m excited for you to get to know me better,” she ended her note.
