Former Miss World and global icon Priyanka Chopra has signed a two-year multimillion-dollar first-look television deal with Amazon, Variety reported. According to the publication, it was a meeting with Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke that led to the partnership. “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,” Salke told Variety. Talking to the publication, Priyanka said: “My quest really is to be able to tell female stories, work with creators from around the world and create a cross-pollination of storytelling,” adding, "My Amazon television deal is a global deal, so I can do Hindi language, I can do English language, I can do whatever language I want.”
The global star also took to her social media accounts to share the news. She wrote: "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. This has always been the DNA of my production house Purple Pebble Pictures, and is the foundation of this exciting new endeavor with Amazon."Looking back on her 20 year career and nearly 60 films later, she hopes that she's on her way to exploring new ideas that not only entertain but open minds and perspectives. Concluding her post, Priyanka thanked people for being a big part of her journey hoping that those who are just getting to know her or only recognize her as Alex Parrish from Quantico, will get to know her better.
