Ventilator, Priyanka Chopra’s Marathi production has been invited to the 55th New York Film Festival according to a report by DNA. The film, which is also set to make its national premiere at the Jio MAMI festival also marks the Quantico actress's debut as a producer.
Chopra's mother, Madhu also spoke to DNA about the film making the rounds of the New York film festival. She said though it was "too premature" to talk about right now, there is a definite possibility it might happen.
She also talked about the first time Chopra played the role of a marathi girl in Kaminey, for which she researched extensively.
“She has a distinct connect with Maharastrian culture and its audiences and this Marathi film will further build up her bonding with the audiences.”
Madhu further said that Priyanka was also looking at interesting collaborations in the field of production.
Ventilator will reportedly have a cameo by Chopra, who is currently shooting for her American TV series Quantico in New York.
Priyanka Chopra has released a promotional song, 'Baba', that she has sung for her maiden Marathi production Ventilator starring Ashutosh Gowariker.
The Disciple premiered at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the FIPRESCI award, and later went to Toronto Film Festival and bagged the Amplify Voices Award.
