Birthday girl Priyanka Chopra might be more in news for her alleged affair with Nick Jonas, but it’s just one part of her life. At the same time, she is slowly cementing her place in both Hollywood and Bollywood. As Priyanka Chopra turns 36 today, she already has a formidable body of work behind her, but that doesn’t stop the actor from going for more experimentation. One of her Hollywood projects, A Kid Like Jake, was recently released, and she made heads turn despite it being a multi-starrer.
Before this, she was seen in Baywatch with Dwayne Johnson. She was the only one who received decent reviews for her performance in the film. The actor who forayed into American showbiz with ABC show Quantico is already an established star in the west.
She has one more film lined up in Hollywood: Isn’t It Romantic? Also starring Liam Hemsworth, Rebel Wilson and Adam DeVine, this is Priyanka’s chance to carry the Bollywood sensibilities to a Hollywood project. It’s a smart choice of film, because it will make the audience see her in a completely different light than Quantico, her TV show.
She has already proved her worth in an action role, and if she does it well in Isn’t It Romantic? then it’s only going to widen her fan base. Quantico has already established Priyanka as one of the most well known Indian faces in the West.
She is also returning to Bollywood after a gap of many years in Bharat. It’s going to be a mega budget production. With Salman Khan as co-star, Priyanka has all the chance to fetch initial eyeballs. Her presence will add an international feel to Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat which is likely to help the film in the overseas market.
Priyanka has also signed Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink where she will play mother to a teenage daughter. Reports say that Priyanka will be sharing profits in the film, the first Indian actress to do so. She will be starring with Farhan Akhtar in the film.
On top of it, she is producing films in many languages. After backing projects in Bhojpuri, Marathi and Punjabi languages, she is all set to venture into Assamese and Sikkimese markets. She also has two Marathi films scheduled to release this year.
With so many projects releasing in coming months, it’s hard to overlook Priyanka Chopra.
