Priyanka Chopra recalled crying on the flight to Berlin on the way to shoot for The Matrix Resurrections. She said that she was terrified of getting back to work amid the Covid-19 pandemic. She revealed that her co-star Jada Pinkett Smith held her hand and reassured her.

During an appearance on the daytime talk show The View, Priyanka showered praise on Jada and called her a ‘boss’. She also expressed her initial reservations about shooting during the pandemic.

“This was the first thing I shot after our lockdown and this was in Berlin. I was flying from Los Angeles to Berlin and after not going anywhere for six months, it was terrifying. And by way of our jobs, we are the only people on the set that have to take off our masks. I’m asthmatic, my husband (Nick Jonas) is Type 1 diabetic, it was just so terrifying,” she said.

“I remember crying and Jada was on the flight with me. She was just such a leader. She held my hand and she was like, ‘We are going to do this together.’ She is a boss, I love her,” she added.

Directed by Lana Wachowski, The Matrix Resurrections is the fourth film in the franchise. It brings back Keanu Reeves, Carrie Anne-Moss and Jada, with Priyanka, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as new additions to the cast.
