She is one of the very few actresses from the subcontinent who grabbed headlines for claiming colour-blind casting, thus creating a niche for herself in the USA. And while inclusivity, multi-ethnicity and diversity have become important topics of conversation globally, she acknowledges that there is a dearth of Indian faces in the West. Speaking exclusively to News18, Priyanka says, “I think when we talk about representation in Hollywood, especially in English language entertainment, we should have more Indian actors.”

Highlighting the number of films produced in India every year and the prominence of Indian films globally, she says, “We, Indians, are just one-fifth of the world’s population. English language entertainment travels around the world. Why don’t we see ourselves as leaders? We come from one of the biggest film industries in the world. We produce more than a thousand films every year across India.

It took me ten years to become the face of a poster and get equal opportunities with my male co-actors. It will take time but I am not afraid of it.

As per reports, Priyanka has joined hands with actor, comedian and filmmaker Mindy Kaling to produce and star in a wedding-themed comedy film. As far as Indian representation is concerned, Hollywood is sure to change drastically in the coming years, Priyanka says, “I sincerely hope that in the next five years, you will see a vastly changing landscape because of so many of my colleagues. , and it’s our demand to make sure we see more faces that look like us.
