Flim industry was monopolised by specific people, OTT offers chance to new artists: Priyanka Chopra Jonas

Priyanka Chopra Jonas firmly believes that the film industry was a monopolist by specific people where OTT platforms gave chance to new and struggling artists.

Actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas speaking at a virtual press conference of streaming platform ZEE5’s inaugural in the US, late Tuesday sunset said that people should embrace streaming platforms because they have not only enabled the audience to absorb diverse stories but also democratised the film industry.

The actor told to a reporter, “There should be five songs, a fight sequence. That formula has gone away. Now people want to tell great, real stories, with which they identify“.


“It’s amazing because it gives new writers, actors, filmmakers an opportunity to come into an industry that was monopolised for a long time by very specific number of people. It’s a great time for growth, entertainment and specifically for Indian cinema,” she added

The launching statement was made by Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global.

Priyanka further said, “The freedom that streaming has provided to audiences around the world is that you can watch a movie at the comfort of your homes. That’s amazing. It’s spreading culture, teaching people, educating them, there’s a large, new audience that is being exposed to all kinds of Indian cinema. My quest is to be able to create more recognition, representation and to be able to have South Asians feel seen and heard, especially within the international community outside of South Asia“.

Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra is geared up for her upcoming Hollywood movie ‘Matrix 4’. The story of director Lana Wachowski’s next instalment of the groundbreaking dystopian sci-fi action series she generated with her sister, Lilly, in 1999.
