Actress Radhika Apte, who is going to make her debut in Hollywood soon, admires actress Priyanka Chopra and truly respects her global fame.

During India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2018 on Saturday here, Radhika Apte said: “I admire whatever Priyanka is doing. She is doing an amazing job. She has been in Hollywood for a while and has fought so many battles there.”

However, she feels there is a dearth of south asian women in the world cinema.

“If you go to Canada or Los Angeles, you will get to see many South Asians there but on screens they are so less in number. It is abnormal not to have much South Asians on screens. We need more people.”

Radhika Apte also expressed that people should not only dream for Hollywood but also fight for equal respresentation in the world.

“I want our generation to break stereotypes and I want Indians who are making their foray in Hollywood to get all kinds of roles.

“It does not mean if you are brown in colour, you will only get to play Indian characters in International films. This cliche thinking should be broken,” she added.

The streaming platform on Tuesday shared that a behind the scenes documentary on the Jonas Brothers is underway. And Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke credited Priyanka for it, and teased about upcoming projects.

“I love Priyanka and she introduced me to Nick Jonas. They sent me a video and we bought it right away and that’s how we came about it,” Salke told IANS in an interview here.

“I love her… So you can look forward to us doing more work with Priyanka,” she added.

When prodded further on the projects which are being discussed, Salke said: “We do have few things on our mind but we haven’t quite finished up the deals… We will have some announcements coming out soon.”

The film will look at the brothers as they reunite for their upcoming tour, and promises to give fans an intimate look into the lives of Kevin, Nick and Joe.

The Jonas Brothers broke up their band in 2013 after cancelling their tour due to a “deep, creative rift” among the members. At the time, Nick, who is now married to Priyanka, had told People magazine of the break-up: “It’s really hard to say ‘forever'”.

A premiere date for the documentary will be announced at a later date.

Opening up about the idea behind the project, Salke said: “It is really about our instincts, ‘oh my God, our customer are going to love this’ and we sort of lean in and figure out the best strategy.”
