New Delhi [India], Nov.7 : In spite of her non-filmy background, Priyanka Chopra has managed to carve a niche for herself in both the Indian and American film industry.
With the help of her production house, she is determined to lend a helping hand to new talent with little opportunities.
In an interview with an employment-oriented social networking service, LinkedIn, the 'Mary Kom' actress said, "There are so many people that come to Mumbai with huge dreams and aspirations but they are squashed, as they don't get access to the film industry and its people because it is very tight-knit." "I want to change that.
I want my production house to find and nurture talent and to give them opportunity," added the 34-year old actress who has set up her own production house, Purple Pebbles Pictures.
Priyanka, who ventured into film production with a Bhojpuri film earlier this year, recently released her maiden Marathi film 'Ventilator'.
Talking about why she opened her production house, she said, "I wanted to tell stories irrespective of the language, genre or medium.
I wanted to give new talent the right kind of opportunities. And so Purple Pebble Pictures was born." On a related note, Miss Chopra is currently in New York, shooting for the second season of her American TV show 'Quantico' and will next be seen in Hollywood movie 'Baywatch', co-starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
