According to the report, it was a general meeting with Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke that led to the first-look deal. This is the fourth collaboration between Priyanka and Amazon, after Sangeet, an unscripted series co-produced Nick Jonas, based on the Indian pre-wedding tradition of Sangeet and Citadel, a spy series by Anthony and Joe Russo in which she’ll star with Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden.

She will also be producing and starring in Sheela, as Osho’s assistant, Ma Anand Sheela. Priyanka will also be seen in Netflix’s We Can Be Heroes and with Rajkummar Rao in The White Tiger - an adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s best-seller of the same name. She’s also shooting Warner Bros.’ The Matrix 4 which recently resumed filming after production was halted by the pandemic.
