Priyanka Chopra discusses her experience as an immigrant in the US as she introduces her home furnishings line: “I abandoned my roots”

As she introduced her new home furnishings line, Sona Home, Priyanka Chopra talked about her experience as an immigrant living in the United States and leaving her roots behind. The performer claimed that with Sona Home, she attempted to introduce a small element of her Indian ancestry to American homes. She also discussed how difficult it was for her to establish a second home for herself after moving to the country for work and eventually marrying singer-actor Nick Jonas.

Priyanka Chopra shared the information on her Instagram page on Wednesday. In a video, she and Sona Home co-founder Maneesh Goyal displayed the items from their line of home furniture. The actor said, “The core of Sona Home to me is family, community, and bringing people together, which is the thing about our culture in India,” when discussing her new company.

Maneesh continued, “If we’re having takeaway or a fantastic party, we want it to seem like it’s so much fun. Whatever we do with our friends or family should be anchored in culture and home, and should give us the feeling that there is nowhere else we would rather be.”

Priyanka went on, “Sona Home is founded on that. It has its roots in turning a house into a home. It was developed to foster community building among family and friends. And as an immigrant from India, that seems to me to be extremely significant. I moved away from home, but I came back to find you, my friends, and my family. This is my adopted nation, and you guys are my chosen family. And to be able to introduce the tradition of the region in which I grew up into households across America.”

In the caption of the video, which said, “I also talked about relocating to America,” “To introduce Sona Home to you all, I could not be more proud. Coming from India and establishing America as my second home was difficult, but my travels brought me to a place where I was able to build friends and a second family. This is an outgrowth of the idea that I infuse a little bit of India into everything I do.” In a different post, she also included images of the items in her home furnishings collection.

For her next Amazon Prime Video series Citadel, the actor recently finished scheduling. Additionally, she is working on the albums Ending Things and It’s All Coming Back To Me.

Cannes 2024: All We Imagine As Light by Payal Kapadia creates history and receives an eight-minute standing ovation

At its world premiere on Thursday at the film festival, Payal Kapadia’s All We Imagine As Light—the first Indian film in the Cannes competition in thirty years—made quite a stir and impressed viewers around the globe.

The film received one of the longest standing ovations of this year’s film festival, lasting eight minutes, after its premiere.

All We Imagine As Light dominating critics
The picture scripted history at the festival and puts Payal in the running for the coveted Palme d’Or. In addition to being the first Indian production in the competition in thirty years, Deadline claims that Payal is the first female Indian director to have a film screened in the Cannes competition.

“India produces a great deal of excellent films. Not only does each state have its own film industry, led by incredibly talented directors, but not only Bollywood. Payal expressed her excitement and happiness that her picture was chosen to Deadline. “I hope that after this we won’t have to wait another 30 years,” she said. We weren’t prepared for it, and it’s an honour because there are so many directors in the category who I find truly inspiring.

This year, Payal faces off against Jacques Audiard, Yorgos Lanthimos, Paul Schrader, David Cronenberg, and Jia Zhangke.

Dancing their path to success
The movie’s cast and crew were beaming on the red carpet prior to leaving for the premiere.

On the Palais stairs, the entire team exuded joy and even danced their way up to the theatre. On the red carpet, the cast was all smiles, making a lot of funny poses and grabbing everyone’s attention.

Kani Kusruti, Divya Prabha, Chhaya Kadam, and Hridhu Haroon are among the actors in the movie.

Payal feels honoured that she has the opportunity to create history at the film festival and demonstrate to the world that Indian cinema is much more diverse than Bollywood.

preliminary evaluations
After the screening, the movie is receiving excellent reviews. According to Sophie Monk-Kaufman of IndieWire, “This casual everyday vignette is brimming with a sensuality (the rain, the clothes, the food, the women) that people don’t tend to notice when caught up in the rhythm of life,” the film is “gorgeous and absorbing,” according to one review. Realising just how complete these moments are requires a snapshot taken by an outside photographer.

Variety referred to it as a “glowing portrait of urban connection and unexpected sisterhood,” while The Guardian described it as a “dreamlike and gentle modern Mumbai tale that is a triumph.”
