Priyanka to play Punjabi woman in Hollywood rom-com

Priyanka Chopra’s next Hollywood romantic comedy will see her playing a Punjabi woman. She will star alongside Mindy Kaling in the film, which will mark their first collaboration together. Mindy, who has also co-written the film, spoke about the project and her and Priyanka’s role in a new interview.

Priyanka and Mindy will play cousins in the romantic comedy, which will revolve around a big fat Indian wedding. Mindy will play an Indian-American, while Priyanka will play her first cousin, who was born and raised in India. Mindy Kaling recently revealed that she and Priyanka’s characters will also be hailing from different cultures in India.

In a previous interview with FirstPost in May 2020, Mindy had said that Priyanka and her love of India have also influenced how she is writing their movie together. She had said, “What’s so fun about writing that movie is playing with the expectations that Indians and Indian Americans have of each other. I’ve learned so much from Priyanka and her love of India. It’s enhanced my own love and understanding of India.”

Priyanka was recently shooting for her Amazon Prime Video web series ‘Citadel’. She will also be seen in Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Jee Le Zaraa’ alongside Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif.
