“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,” the ‘Dostana’ actor stated.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas already has two television projects lined up with Amazon – “Sangeet” an unscripted series co-produced with husband, Nick Jonas. It is based on the Indian pre-wedding tradition, and how families of the bride and groom compete against each other in singing and dancing.
The second project is Anthony and Joe Russo’s spy series – ‘Citadel’, that will have Priyanka in lead along with Richard Madden.
