NEW DELHI: Priyanka Chopra Jonas says individuals who trivialise her function in “The Matrix Resurrections” on the idea of her display time within the movie have a “myopic” and “small mentality”.
Chopra Jonas stars as Sati, an exiled program, within the Lana Wachowski-directed film alongside Keanu Reeves as Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity.
During a latest interview with Asian Sunday TV, the actor was requested the explanation for taking the half, contemplating it wasn’t a lead character.
“I believe you’re coming from one thing which lots of people from the South Asian group ask me. ‘It’s a small function, it’s not a number one function, why did you do it?’ Because it’s ‘The Matrix’ and I play a particularly pivotal half.
“Even when I picked my movies in Bollywood, I have always picked roles according to characters and they are not necessarily always the lead. The lead is Carrie-Anne Moss, who played Trinity in the last three movies. You’re not competing with that and I think it’s such a myopic and very small mentality to think that way,” Chopra Jonas replied.
In latest years, the 39-year-old actor has gained prominence in Hollywood along with her work within the TV present “Quantico” and movies, together with “Baywatch” and “Isn’t It Romantic”.
Back dwelling in Bollywood, she is considered some of the versatile performers with movies resembling “Fashion”, “Barfi”, “Don” sequence, “Kaminey”, “Bajirao Mastani” to her credit score. Chopra Jonas stated it’s her perception that each actor on board for a movie contributes to the story.
“This (‘The Matrix’) is an ensemble of incredible actors and I think by asking that question, you really reduce the grandiosity of being a part of the playground of playing with such incredible people,” she added.
Chopra Jonas’s upcoming slate of movies embrace Jim Strouse-directed rom-com “Text For You”, Amazon thriller sequence “Citadel”, produced by Russo Brothers, and “Sangeet”, an unscripted sequence co-produced along with her husband.
She may even produce a movie with Amazon Studios on the lifetime of Ma Anand Sheela, the previous aide to late godman Osho Rajneesh.
