Has Priyanka Chopra Jonas actually been typecast and sidelined in Hollywood?

Priyanka Chopra landed a great role in the ABC series Quantico. As the lead, she was one of the few women of colour leading a big script in America.

In Bollywood, she has a great set of films including both commercial and critically acclaimed ones. Her acting is top-notch, and has won her a range of awards. When she started her stepping stone into Hollywood, everyone was excited for the desi girl to become a trailblazer. However, post Quantico she's primarily been in blink-and-miss kind of roles. Despite her mettle as an actor, she's been allotted very minimal characterisation in films. It's disappointing, to say the least. Her acting in movies like Bajirao Mastani shone through the screen, and she's capable of carrying films effortlessly. In fact, when Deepika Padukone was mistaken by American reporters as Priyanka, the latter had claimed that it was because she was the "only brown face they know."

Keeping this in mind, is Hollywood casting her just to appear diverse? And if so, why is she still sticking around to be sidelined constantly?
