Priyanka talks about the difficulties of being an Indian actor in Hollywood

In a recent interview, Priyanka Chopra discussed the challenges she faced as an Indian actor in Hollywood. The actor claimed that hosting a TV show in America could be her ‘greatest obstacle’ as viewers outside of the South Asian diaspora might not be interested in her. This notion is based on the assumption that she would ‘cater to just a South Asian audience.’

Priyanka has noticed a ‘huge difference’ in the past decade since she started focusing on her Hollywood career. She has acted in several Hollywood movies, including Baywatch and The Matrix Resurrections, and will soon be featured on Amazon Video’s spy thriller Citadel. She believes that the introduction of streaming has increased the importance of entertainment globalization. In an interview with Bloomberg, Priyanka stated, “The necessity for globalization increased in importance with the introduction of streaming. The limited perception of my abilities that I believe I faced as an Indian actor was the largest challenge.”

Despite acknowledging that there is still “a long way to go,” Priyanka remains optimistic about the future. She believes that they will continue to push the boundaries when it comes to the arts to ensure more inclusivity in the entertainment industry.

On March 9, Priyanka co-hosted the second annual South Asian Excellence at the Oscars event. Celebrities including Ram Charan, Jr. NTR, Guneet Monga, Mindy Kaling, Nick Jonas, Preity Zinta, Jacqueline Fernandez, Malala Yousafzai, and others gathered at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles to honor nominees from films like RRR, All That Breathes, and The Elephant Whisperers.

It was a historic night for India at the 95th Academy Awards as the RRR song Naatu Naatu and the documentary The Elephant Whisperers both received Oscars. The Elephant Whisperers won the Best Documentary Short prize, while Naatu Naatu took home the Best Original Music prize.
