Priyanka Chopra flew back to India, Mumbai and hosted a press conference to announce second Marathi film from her production house Purple Pebble pictures.
During the press conference she spoke in length on her stance on working with Madhuri Dixit Nene and being chosen at the Oscars Committee.
Priyanka has been invited to become the committee member of the Academy Awards’ (Oscars). When asked her about it she said, “I accepted their invitation and must confess it was so simple (smiles). I am grateful to the Academy for including people from around the world. They ask for our opinions. I am very clear about my views and the Academy opens itself up to nominations for foreign language films outside of just one category. I hope that is something which happens because there are so many films which come from around the world. Even for Indian films where our talent has won awards, it has been for those not made by India, because of the lack of opportunities. I hope that is something which changes and I can contribute to that.”
When asked her about co-producing an American TV show with Madhur Dixit Nene, she opined, “Things are moving and as soon as I finalise something, I will definitely share it with you. I have spent about a year exploring on many opportunities in Hindi, English and regional cinema. I want to tell a lot of stories... I’ll share with you after everything has been finalised.”
About making a mark in Hollywood, Priyanka humbly states, “It is not easy to go to another country and start work without any kind of privilege. I don’t go with a mind frame that because I am someone I need a certain kind of treatment. I am an artiste, and when I go to another country, I have no problem introducing myself as Priyanka Chopra, an Indian actor. I have always spoken only about my achievements. I have strived to be where I am and this is the result.”
Currently PeeCee is spending gala time with her family!
