Priyanka Chopra Jonas is one of the most popular names from Bollywood across the globe. The actress has successfully carved a place for herself not just in the Hindi film industry but also in the West. She was recently a part of an online press conference, on the occasion of the online streaming platform Zee5's launch in the US.

While addressing the press conference, the actor expressed that she feels online streaming platforms have made artists and filmmakers think outside the so-called formula of a Bollywood film. She appreciated the streaming platforms saying that they have given a chance to new actors to shine.

Sharing how she feels streaming services have changed Indian cinema in recent times, Priyanka said, "The freedom of streaming is allowing people to have larger thoughts than the formula that existed before - that 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."

She further expressed that the boom of online streaming services, especially in India has resulted in breaking down the monopoly of a particular number of people, giving way to newer forms of storytelling.

A still from The White Tiger.

The White Tiger, which was released on Netflix featured Priyanka alongside Rajkumar Rao and Adarsh Gourav. The film opened to positive responses from audiences and critics alike. Her superhero film, We Can Be Heroes, was also released on Netflix last year.
