Priyanka Chopra Jonas did not have an easy entry into Hollywood. The actress first tried her luck at singing before she got her big break with Quantico. She eventually bagged her film break with Baywatch. Today, PeeCee has a slew of projects in her kitty. This includes Matrix 4, a wedding comedy movie with Mindy Kaling and more. Apart from acting, the actress has also been busy as a producer. She recently co-produced an all-Asian cast film titled Evil Eye. 

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Priyanka weighed in on the diverse cast and said she wants to create opportunities for brown actors in Hollywood through her production house. "My quest in life, as a producer, is to influx Hollywood with brown people, because we don't see enough of us," she said, before adding, "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." 

The new release sees an Indian mother-daughter duo dealing with the mother's abusive ex-lover who's reincarnated into her daughter's present boyfriend. She told the publication that she chose to associate with the project was because of the leading ladies and Priyanka's own bond with her mother. 

While producing has her attention, the actress recently took to Instagram and revealed that she has returned to the sets to resume work. Priyanka is currently in Europe and she has been sharing photos from the location.

Actually beautiful Indian women need to be represented in the US women who look like Raveena Tandon or Genelia d'Souza not women like you or Mindy Kaling. Many American men think Indian women are ugly because of you and Mindy representing us .

Priyanka Chopra ... Please stay in your lane. Your competition called “ Meghan Markle “ the liberal elitist is on her way into Hollywood. We in America are tired of your BS. 2-3 years in America.. you are already talking about Brown rights. What about Blacks , Latinos & Native Americans who built America for centuries. As a Brown Indian living here in USA Gir more than 2 decades , I prefer them .. not you a wannabe white washed woman. Sorry you do not represent me or any other Brown folks in America. You are good for Bollywood.. Not Hollywood.

Priyanka is a white washed woman. Married to a white man gives her the liberty to talk shot like this. How long has she been in America ? Couple of years May be ? Blacks and Latinos need more representation in White Hollywood than Brown Priyanka .. A wannabe woke whitewashed woman !!! Hollywood needs authentic folks not a brown claiming to be white depending on the situation. We have seen lot of Indians like Priyanka in America !!!

I find this ridiculous... a country in which majority people are white, why would you influx it’s industry which represents them, with ‘brown people’? Representation should be there of every colour, but it should be fair and adequate to its population. That’s like making Bollywood filled with white people. Will that be reliable to Indians? Make it make sense.

She doesn't have the wave length to understand this.. She's just all about being a loud show off n a party girl..Her recent produced film, evil eye too is a trashy n over the top representation of herself... Just a wannabe... Nothing. Absolutely nothing real there!

2 years in US suddenly she feels Hollywood is being unfair to her. Come on lady! You were in high position in India why didn't you help and create opportunities for dark girls in India ? First she was all preaching about curves cuz US was going through that change now she's about brown people cuz US is about that change. I wish when she didn't I just follow the trends and actually was honest and from the heart wanted to help women. She can still do that yet she opened a plastic surgery studio in india. Telling girls it's not okay to be like themselves!

She was literally being a racist on kapil sharma show & mocking her in-laws. If only any Jonas could understand hindi. This woman should shut up & stop trying to milk asian culture & be the last one to talk about anything related to race .
