“The fact they have so many companies and partners around the world, benefits me because that’s how I see the world,” Chadha said.

“If I tell a story I want it to appeal to all the people who love my work (around the world)... I have reached those people’s hearts and minds with films like ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ and ‘Bride & Prejudice’.

“I have an audience out there, so for me working on this huge scale with this great partnership with Fremantle allows me to access that audience I have, plus a whole new audience through TV,” she added.
