Priyanka Chopra Says There’s Nothing Like ‘Citadel’ On Television, Reveals Shooting For It Was ‘Physically Intense’. We’re So Excited!

By  | 

Priyanka Chopra has made it big as a global icon and we’re all so proud of her. After watching the actress in The Matrix Resurrections, I just cannot wait to watch her in the upcoming Amazon Prime Video spy thriller series Citadel. Created by the Russo brothers and Patrick Moran, Citadel stars Richard Madden and Roland Møller alongside Priyanka Chopra. The spy thriller series has been described as an ‘action-packed spy series with a compelling emotional center’. TBH, I totally love her acting skills. While many may say it’s the Jonas effect, I’d say we got a global star who’s bigger than all the Jonas’ put together. And that’s just a fact. I mean Priyanka Chopra did point that out during Jonas Brothers Family Roast.

That being said, Citadel seems to have a special place in PeeCee’s heart. In a recent interview with Collider, Priyanka Chopra opened up about her experience on the sets of the spy thriller series as well as why she wanted to be a part of it. The Bollywood actor turned global star shared that there is no series on television that has action, drama as well as emotions in a package while adding that that’s the reason why she wanted to be a part of Citadel. Speaking further Priyanka Chopra said that it was easier to work for the series as it’s a limited series which is much better than doing something which has multiple episodes as it requires much more commitment.

“There is nothing like Citadel on television, I think. It’s extremely high scale, extremely finessed action, stunts, but at the same time it’s a drama and it has heart. So, I think there is really nothing like that on TV right now and that is one of the big reasons I really wanted to do it. Doing something for multiple episodes… you know it’s a commitment. But because this was a limited series it was really great,” said Priyanka Chopra.

The actress also revealed that shooting for her character in Citadel was physically intense, while adding that the show is ‘very special’ for her as everyone has worked hard on it. Priyanka Chopra said, “We shot it for over a year. It was really physically very, very intense for my character and I’m sure a bunch of the cast as well. It was a lot of work, but I am so excited to share it with the world because I just saw a bunch of it recently and I think it’s very special. We’ve worked really hard on it, and you’ll see that.”

Moreover, the actress also revealed that they are hoping that the series might air on the OTT platform by the end of next year.

From starring in Baywatch to snagging a role in The Matrix Resurrections, Priyanka Chopra has made us understand that there’s no stopping her. But that doesn’t stop the trolls and media from coming after her. Following the release of The Matrix Resurrections, an Indian publication highlighted that Priyanka Chopra’s appearance in the film was only for a total of 8-10 minutes. But PeeCee’s fans and her mother took a stand for her.

Retweeting a tweet from the publications that highlighted the actress’ 8-10 minute appearance, Madhu Chopra pointed out that Priyanka Chopra’s role was ‘crucial and pivotal’. Several fans of the actress also defended her screentime while highlighting that the actress gave a rather impactful performance in a short span of time which is proof that her acting skills are amazing. Some fans also pointed out that being a part of The Matrix franchise and being a part of the star-studded cast is a huge deal in itself.

Take a look.

For the uninitiated, Priyanka Chopra portrayed the role of grown-up Sati in the fourth instalment of The Matrix film series The Matrix Resurrections. Co-written and directed by Lana Wachowski, the film stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Lambert Wilson, Jada Pinkett Smith, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

Well, we’re so so proud of PeeCee. Shame on you media vultures for demeaning her work.
