Apart from her numerous projects as an actor, Chopra takes her role as a producer seriously as well. While Ventilator (Marathi) and Pahuna (Sikkimese) have garnered acclaim, the Mary Kom star is ready to foray into Hindi film production soon.

According to a report by DNA, Chopra's maiden Hindi production venture may revolve around children and stray dogs, much like 2011's Chillar Party.

With many reports or pets and animals being mistreated, the DNA article says, and this being a cause Priyanka feels strongly about, the premise of the story struck a chord with her.

This film is speculated to be the one that she had mentioned recently during her Film Companion interview with Anupama Chopra. She spoke about the difference between the western and the Indian film industry — mentioning how big Hollywood stars do tiny roles in a good content-driven film; while getting an A-lister on a not-so-known film project is nearly impossible in Bollywood.

She hinted at a film she had been trying to do, which is based on children and stray dogs. She expressed her desire to cast a big Bollywood A-lister to do six scenes in the film. But the economics doesn't support such a Utopian thought in Indian film industry, the actress explained. She later rested the topic saying she will probably end up doing the part herself.
