Priyanka Chopra can be a winner at Oscars 2021, Variety predicts. Known for changing the face of India on the global map with her sheer talent and freshness, which she brings on the screen, she is one of the most loved celebrities globally.
Meanwhile, making headlines once again, she has now been listed by Variety magazine amongst one of the top contenders for the ‘Best Supporting Actress’ category at the Oscars next year for her role in the Netflix film, ‘The White Tiger’. Directed by Ramin Bahrani (‘Fahrenheit 451’), the film is an adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s novel of the same name. Her character in the film is something fans have never witnessed her doing before and is already being touted as one of the best so far. The storyline has a poor Indian driver (played by newcomer Adarsh Gourav) who must use his wit and cunning to break free from servitude to his rich masters (played by Priyanka and Rajkummar Rao) and rise to the top of the heap.
For the unversed, Variety’s Awards Circuit is home to the official predictions of the upcoming Oscars. Priyanka is being listed with the likes of Meryl Streep (for The Prom), Han Yen-ri (for Minari), Kristin Scott Thomas (for Rebecca) and Olivia Colman (for The Father) amongst others.
Netflix is producing ‘The White Tiger’ in association with Mukul Deora with Priyanka also serving as an Executive Producer.
