It is a well-known fact that Priyanka Chopra Jonas is a flagbearer of women empowerment, in her real as well as reel life. The actress has, in the past, made headlines for her powerful statements inspiring millions of women a countless number of times.
She has not only talked the talk but also walked the walk by supporting girl child education and being vocal about gender equality, women’s rights and the gender pay gap. So, it comes as no surprise that it was Priyanka Chopra that started the trend of female-centric movies with ‘Fashion’ (2008) thirteen years ago.
There has been no looking back for the industry ever since for her. Whether it was ‘The Dirty Picture’ (2011), ‘Kahaani’ (2012), ‘English Vinglish’ (2012), ‘Queen’ (2013), ‘Mary Kom’ (2014), ‘Margarita With A Straw’ (2014) or ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ (2016) Bollywood has opened doors for more stories revolving around female protagonists. Priyanka Chopra has always created opportunities for more women to share the stage together through her films.
In ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ (2015), the actress empowered more women to be seen on the big screen together. The movie featured as many female stars as it did male actors. Priyanka Chopra was seen alongside female co-stars like Anushka Sharma, Ridhima Sud, Shefali Shah, Zarina Wahab, Khushi Dubey, Ayesha Raza and Dolly Minhas.
Now, Priyanka Chopra Jonas is gearing up to take us for a fun road trip with her upcoming film ‘Jee Le Zaraa’, which will once again see female stars Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif helming the movie along with her.
