Congratulations are in order for Priyanka Chopra Jonas who has just become the first Indian actor to be invited to Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) as an ambassador this year. In addition to Priyanka Chopra Jonas, director Anurag Kashyap also joins TIFF 's list of 50 celebrated members of the fraternity. The festival, slated to run from September 10 to September 19, will be opting for digital screenings and virtual red carpets for the first time due to the coronavirus pandemic, making it "tailored to fit the moment".

 

Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Anurag Kashyap will join Oscar winners and international names including filmmakers Martin Scorsese, Alfonso Cuaron, Taika Waititi, Ava DuVernay, Rian Johnson, Denis Villeneuve and actors Nicole Kidman, Nadine Labaki, Riz Ahmed, Isabelle Huppert and Zhang Ziyi to help TIFF deliver this year's impressive gala, organisers said in a press release. 

 

Before this announcement, Priyanka was also a part of Variety’s Power of Women: Frontline Heroes chat yesterday. The platform aimed to celebrate the courageous women on the frontlines of Covid-19. Chopra Jonas was in conversation Hollywood-biggies like Cate Blanchett, Patti LuPone and Janelle Monae and spoke at lengths about realising the kind of privilege she has.

 

“Quarantine for me has been truly humbling. I come from India and reading reports about how people are dying of hunger and not of COVID just makes me realize how much of a privileged position I have, just because I have a home that I can quarantine in. Stay with my family, my husband,” the 37-year-old said.

Lol. So many bu***urt people here who think their insults are going to effect Priyanka in anyway. She's going to keep achieving and all you guys can do is watch and post useless anonymous comments. And btw those who are talking about her alleged 'affairs' with married men, did you ever question those men and their judgement? An affair is a two-way street. If she did have an affair with SRK, then he is as much at fault as PC. But nope, all you can do is blame a woman for everything. And those calling Nick Jonas a flopped musician might have never even heard or watched his work.

Did you guys ever wonder, why SRK screwed around with Priyanka? Was he preying on a still new to the industry actress? Same with Akshay Kumar? Why do these married men need to find other women, when they are already married?

But Priyanka has achieved more than kangana. I feel the comparison is stupid. Priyanka is no more a part of bollywood while kangana can only dream about Hollywood lol

Kangana did not screw around with SRK nor does she needs to!

Kangana doesn't cry, she just show what is the reality in Bollywood. Priyanka's reality and her words don't match.

What is with these negative comments...Priyanka is amazing and everything she has achieved has been on her terms unlike her Bollywood counterparts. Be proud of what is doing, even during COVID19 lockdown.

She is not big deal in hollywood lol. Making cameos does not make one big. She is only known as Mrs. Jones. Thats it. A wife of a band member whose band is flopping now.

nice try. no one takes this woman seriously in Hollywood. it is without a doubt a paid deal to get priyanka in the headlines. after all, no one knows her in the States. Her acting career was years ago. she has to buy such appearances. sad ending, but she destroyed herself with all her affairs. no fake marriage with a gay musician helps either.
