Priyanka Chopra headlined a rom-com and a web series without being typecast as an Indian.

Chopra is actively seeking roles that avoid sidekick or stereotype roles due to her background.

She acknowledges other artists like Simone Ashley, Mindy Kaling, and Deepika Padukone for helping change South Asian representation in Hollywood.

Chopra believes in working hard and being better than anyone else cast, rather than simply filling a diversity quota.

Her web series, Citadel, was recently renewed for a second season after ending its first season on May 26.

Production for the next season of Citadel will move to California, with returning co-stars and Joe Russo directing all episodes.
