Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra is vouching for more brown representation in Hollywood. The actor in a recent virtual session with Entertainment Tonight opened up about her upcoming production Evil Eyes.
It also gave her the chance to pull together a diverse cast and shine a light on actors who might otherwise not get a shot at working on a mainstream project for American audiences.
PC says “My quest in life, as a producer, is to influx Hollywood with brown people, because we don’t see enough of us,”. She adds, “and to be able to do an all South Asian cast in a movie with Amazon and Blumhouse — who are both powerhouses — was a dream come true for me.”
“I want to demand leading parts for people who are like me. I want to have girls that look like me… start to be on the poster of a movie,” she continued. “It’s my greatest joy and honor to be able to create opportunities where I didn’t have them.”
