If we talk about Priyanka Chopra‘s non-filmy career, the graph of the additional talent of her production house films these days is riding on the seventh sky. The actress’s Purple Pebble Pictures is not only swooping the films made in her venture but also landing versatility in bundles to Indian Cinematic Industry.
Priyanka Chopra herself has managed her filmy career both in national and international entertainment world. With the launch of her venture production house, she is lending an opportunity hand to new talent to enter the world of entertainment.
In an interview with an employment-oriented social networking service, LinkedIn, the ‘Mary Kom’ actress said, “There are so many people that come to Mumbai with huge dreams and aspirations but they are squashed, as they don’t get access to the film industry and its people because it is very tight-knit.”
“I want to change that. I want my production house to find and nurture talent and to give them the opportunity,” added the 34-year old actress who has set up her own production house, Purple Pebbles Pictures.
Priyanka, who ventured into film production with a Bhojpuri film earlier this year, recently released her maiden Marathi film ‘Ventilator‘.
Talking about why she opened her production house, she said, “I wanted to tell stories irrespective of the language, genre or medium. I wanted to give new talent the right kind of opportunities. And so Purple Pebble Pictures was born.”
On a related note, Miss Chopra is currently in New York, shooting for the second season of her American TV show ‘Quantico’ and will next be seen in Hollywood movie ‘Baywatch’, co-starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
Despite this, Priyanka Chopra has joined professional networking website LinkedIn as a LinkedIn Influencer. Priyanka shared the news on her Twitter account on Monday and posted the link to her profile on the portal. A video interview of Priyanka with an official of LinkedIn India was played at LinkedIn’s Mumbai office on Monday.
