Priyanka Chopra’s Marathi production ‘Ventilator’ (2016) has been quite a positive start to the actress’s production company Purple Pebble Pictures. It’s now emerged that she could be set to producer director Rajesh Mapuskar’s next venture too.
“Yes, I am in talks with Priyanka Chopra for another Marathi film and she might come on board for my next film as a producer. Right now, it’s too early to give out any details, though,” said Mapuskar, according to Deccan Chronicle.
Chopra is taking forward producing regional cinema and Mapuskar commends her for her efforts, “It takes courage to do what Priyanka is doing. She can easily produce a Bollwyood film but she chooses to tell different stories in different languages. It’s very overwhelming and encouraging to see somebody from Bollywood who has so much power, still want to do something unconventional”.
On joining hands with Chopra for Hindi films, Mapuskar says, “I would love to collaborate with her for Hindi films but Priyanka is very clear that she doesn’t want to produce Hindi films right now. She wants to focus on regional films only”.
