Priyanka Chopra, who unveiled the first look of her debut Punjabi film production Sarvann, says she is happy to see her "long-cherished goal" become a reality. She also said the movie will be promoted widely.
Sarvann, starring Punjabi superstar Amrinder Gill, marks the second production association between Chopra's Purple Pebble Pictures and Vashu Bhagnani's Pooja Films.
"This is a long-cherished goal that is seeing fruition and we have many plans for the film's promotion across the world. We're very proud to work with such an amazing team to present this wonderful story," Chopra said in a statement.
Gill also tweeted the poster of the film to his huge fan base and is already getting an enthusiastic response.
He said: "It is time that Punjabi films get the recognition they deserve. With Sarvann, we have such a beautiful collaboration with the biggest names in Bollywood with a movie that I believe audiences will thoroughly enjoy."
Breaking language barriers and backing good stories is not new for Chopra or Bhagnani, who earlier worked together for Marathi film Ventilator.
Sarvann director Karaan Guliani said: "Produced by an all-women team of Priyanka Chopra, Dr Madhu Chopra and Deepshika Deshmukh, Sarvann is a coming-of-age story of a young man who discovers his true identity."
The film is releasing on 9 December.
