Cut to Citadel, Priyanka and Richard will be seen as agents Mason Kane and Nadia Sinh respectively in the series. Sharing her experience of working with the makers, the actress recently said at a press conference in Mumbai, “I think they’re incredible. Working with Joe and Anthony [Russo] and the whole AGBO team, bringing in David [Weil], there was such a sense of collaboration that they had with us. They trusted the actors. They asked us questions about our characters, what we thought our characters would do. So, there was this incredible trust and faith, which we absolutely had in them because of their credibility, but they showed in us as well. So when you walk onto set, it was never us and using, it was all of us together, creating the show. So, we feel a sense of ownership and we feel a sense of belonging because it’s ours, because we put in. They helped us. They encouraged us to protect our characters. They encouraged us to talk about our characters. And I think that made it a really wonderful work experience.”
