Priyanka Chopra paves a path for South-Asian actors with her two-year multimillion-dollar first-look television deal with Amazon. She reported that there is very little support for immigrant actors who enter the global entertainment industry. She said this is her attempt to make it easier for immigrant actors to work in Hollywood or any other film industry for that matter without struggling too much. She shared her own experiences starting in Hollywood and all the struggles she faced.

YESSSS @amazonstudios, LET’SGET IT!!! So honored and excited to finally share this news with you. Looking ahead, we already have so much on our slate! Big thank you to @jsalke and her team at Amazon for being such great partners, and for sharing in the belief that talent and good content knows no boundaries. As both an actor and producer, I have always dreamt of an open canvas of creative talent coming together from all over the world to create great content irrespective of language and geography. This has always been the DNA of my production house Purple Pebble Pictures, and is the foundation of this exciting new endeavor with Amazon. And as a storyteller, my quest is to constantly push myself to explore new ideas that not only entertain, but most importantly, open minds and perspectives. Looking back on my 20 year career, nearly 60 films later, I hope that I’m on my way to achieving that. Thank you to all of you who have been a big part of my journey so far. And for those who are just getting to know me, or maybe only recognize me as Alex Parrish from Quantico, I’m excited for you to get to know me better. @purplepebblepictures @variety @marcmalkin
