The actor made a name for herself in India with movies such as Fashion, Kaminey and Bajirao Mastani, and now she is off to the west. She is one of the few stars from Bollywood to have embarked on a successful career in the West with the TV show Quantico as well as films, including Baywatch and Isn’t It Romantic.
She also runs a production house, Purple Pebbles Pictures, which has backed the National Award-winning Marathi films Ventilator and Paani. Priyanka most recently executive produced and starred in Ramin Bahrani’s The White Tiger, which was released on Netflix earlier this year. The film, based on Aravind Adiga’s 2008 novel of the same name, was nominated for best adapted screenplay at the 93rd Academy Awards.
The actor will next be seen in the highly-anticipated The Matrix: Resurrections, starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. Her forthcoming projects are the rom-com film Text For You, thriller series Citadel, a film on spiritual guru Osho Rajneesh’s aide Ma Anand Sheela, and Farhan Akhtar’s directorial Jee Le Zaraa alongside Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt.
