Priyanka Chopra is a multi-tasker and someone who does not like to compromise on anything. The actress is producing regional films and is taking extra steps to ensure that stories from all parts of India get told. She has already made a Marathi one Ventilator, a Punjabi film Sarvann and a Bhojpuri film, Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi. The Punjabi flick starring Amrinder Gill, Ranjit Bawa and Simi Chahal is set to hit the marquee next week. It is the story of an NRI who looks for his roots. Helmed by Karaan Guliani, it is special for the actress for one reason than one.
The film also has a Sikh bhajan sung by her father, the late Dr Ashok Chopra. PeeCee also has finalised which regional films she plans to produce next. The actress told Mumbai Mirror, “I will be announcing five, small-budget, content-driven, path-breaking films in other languages this year. I want to tell as many stories as possible using local talent speaking in regional tongues.” Priyanka is now backing in the US to resume work on Quantico. As per a report in the Mumbai Mirror, the actress’ first regional project in the New Year will be a Sikkimese-Nepali film titled Paua which means `Guest’ in English.
It seems the story will revolve around two kids who get separated from their families due to unrest in the border. Apparently, Priyanka and her mother are keen to source talent from Nepal and Sikkim. “I had always wanted to produce films and in 2014, we kicked off our regional film slate. But when Quantico was extended to a full season, my mum became my eyes on the ground. I’ll definitely produce Hindi films soon and want to collaborate with a few filmmakers,” the actress told the publication. Priyanka Chopra plans to tell stories on other Indian states as well. She is reading tales based on Chattisgarh and Rajasthan.
