Big thank you to @jsalke and her team at Amazon for being such great partners, and for sharing in the belief that talent and good content knows no boundaries. ⁣⁣   As both an actor and producer, I have always dreamt of an open canvas of creative talent coming together from all over the world to create great content irrespective of language and geography.

Talking about the deal, Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke told Variety, “Priyanka and I bonded over a shared passion for diverse global storytelling. Priyanka is drawn to exciting original content and characters that can resonate globally. She’s a powerhouse producer, and we are thrilled to collaborate with her for years to come.”

Priyanka has already announced that she will be collaborating with Amazon on two television projects. One is ‘Sangeet’ which is an unscripted series with her husband Nick Jonas based on Big Fat Indian Wedding and the other is Citadel, the Anthony and Joe Russo’s spy series co-starring Richard Madden.

Priyanka Chopra remembered watching Sarah Michelle Gellar in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and told Variety, “I was like, ‘That’s who I want to be,’ She was an amazing teenage idol. But what if at 13, I had seen someone who looked like me? The only person that I saw at that time who was culturally representative of me was Apu from ‘The Simpsons,’ and he was played by a white guy, which I found out much later, obviously. But as a teenager, I didn’t see representation of myself in American pop culture or even global pop culture outside of the stereotypical caricatures of South Asians.”
