Actor Priyanka Chopra is now widely known in Hollywood as well. The actor has done some notable films in the West and now, Priyanka has featured in the mega-franchise, The Matrix Resurrections along with the likes of Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Neil Patrick Harris. In the movie, PeeCee essays the role of Sati, even though her screen time is less, she has managed to make an impact on the audience. Seeing her for a brief period of time, even fans were disappointed. Now, reacting to the length of the role in The Matrix, Priyanka spoke about the same in an interview with Sunday TV.

I think you are coming from something which a lot of people from the South Asian community ask me. “Oh, it’s a small role, it’s not a leading role. Why did you do it?’ (laughs) Because it’s The Matrix and I play an extremely pivotal part. Even when I picked my movies in Bollywood, I have always picked roles according to characters and they are not necessarily always the lead. The lead is Carrie-Anne Moss, who played Trinity in the last three movies. You’re not competing with that and I think it’s such a myopic and very small mentality to think that way,” the Bajirao Mastani actor said.

This is an ensemble of incredible actors and I think by asking that question, you really reduce the grandiosity of being a part of the playground of playing with such incredible people. You look at my career in Bollywood. Whether it is Bajirao Mastani, Barfi, Kaminey, there are so many movies that I have done that are not about me. I just love playing with great talent. I love being on the playground with incredible people. I am not very myopic when it comes to my characters, especially not The Matrix!” she said.
