Baywatch actress Priyanka Chopra is highlighting a new piece of regional cinema with every trip she takes to India. Priyanka has decided to produce a Marathi film Firebrand which is directed by National Award winning director Aruna Raje. Priyanka Chopra and her mother Madhu Chopra are both focusing on regional cinema a lot. This will be the third Marathi film from Priyanka’s production house Purple Pebbles as she has produced Ventilator and Kay Re Rascala before. Ventilator went on to bag the national award for best film while Kay Re Rascala did not manage to make an impact on the audience as it was more on commercial value and less on content.
Aruna Raje is known for her hard hitting realistic cinema based on true facts but this is the first time of her directing a fiction film. Apparently Priyanka has heard of the script a few months back and instantly liked it enough to think of making it and on her trip back to India she went through the script again and decided to green light the project. The film stars Usha Jadhav, Girish Kulkarni, Sachin Khedekar and prolific Rajeshwari Sachdev, these are some of the best from art house Marathi cinema.
Priyanka Chopra is yet announce her next Hindi film as she seems to be awfully busy with her Hollywood ventures. Quantico has recently renewed for a season 3 and there is no one more busy in show business more than the actor working in television except the writer who s writing television. She is working in 2 Hollywood films, A Kid Like Jake and Isn’t It Romantic? both of which re currently under0production now. Last Hindi film Priyanka Chopra participated in was Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnamopus Bajirao Mastani in which she portrayed the character of Bajirao’s wife Kashibai. Priyanka might announce her next Hindi film very soon.
