The movie is a transgender family drama and is slated for release in 2018. Priyanka plays a single mother called Amal.
The film’s storyline
The story is based on a celebrated play of similar name. Jim Parsons and Claire Danes play a married couple who have a four-year-old bright and precocious child. The son prefers dressing up like a princess rather than as G.I. Joe. The worried parents try to get the son admitted into the right school. The gender identity question crops up time and again and this subject has been chosen at this time when transgender issues and problems run high. Silas Howard is one of the few transgender directors of Hollywood.
The Bollywood to Hollywood shift
Priyanka Chopra has etched a name for herself in Bollywood before she shifted her focus to Hollywood. She has been received equally well in the USA as well. She debuted in the famous TV series ‘Quantico’ which premiered on ABC on 25th September 2015. It received a lot of positive and rave reviews.
Priyanka then bagged a villainous role in Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron starer movie ‘Baywatch’. Though this film did not do well in the USA, it got a lot of support in Germany and Mexico. Now, Priyanka Chopra is rolling onto her second American movie! Priyanka Chopra had recently appeared on ‘The Dirty Laundry’ show with Laura Brown. When enquired about the first time she felt in-style, Priyanka replied:
“I was invited to go to the junior prom, and I couldn’t afford dresses and it also wasn’t my year to go to the prom. So the first time I literally felt in-style was when I went to Macy’s picked up a dress and promptly returned it the next day!”
Priyanka also disclosed about the Ferragamo pair of shoes which were custom-made for her. She said:
“These were custom made for me, and the cast of my foot is in the Ferragamo museum in Florence, Italy where it sits next to Audrey Hepburn’s. In fact it’s really trippy when you have a man spend like two hours on your foot!”
She also mentioned that she owns a jacket of one of her ex-boyfriend. Explaining about it, she said:
“This jacket is something I literally live in, and it is my airport jacket, but it belonged to an ex-boyfriend.”
“Things get exchanged but this one I really, really loved because it just kinda became mine. It stopped being his when it stayed back at my house once and I just kinda wore it. Yeah he did ask for it and I said No”.
Other Hollywood movie in which she is featured is Isn’t It Romantic which was released on 13th February 2019.
