Priyanka Chopra has gone regional with her production house. Chopra's Purple Pebble Production is making three regional films – Ventilator (Marathi), Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi (Bhojpuri) and the Punjabi film Sarvann.

Chopra’s Punjabi production has got a boost after noted producer Vashu Bhagnani, head of Puja Entertainment, joined hands with the Quantico star to co-produce Sarvann.

“It's wonderful to collaborate with Priyanka Chopra and Madhu Chopra. I'm glad that after so many years of being in the industry, we have now got the opportunity to work together and are making our debut as producers in Punjabi films together. Sarvann is a wonderful heartwarming film and the audience is going to love the script,” said Bhagnani.

Priyanka Chopra, founder and 'talent samurai' at PPP, said, “We are equally honoured and excited to collaborate with Vashuji and the team at Puja Entertainment on this film. We have had such an amazing response to our regional film ventures and we are now looking forward to our Punjabi debut, which has now been further strengthened by the support and experience of Vashuji. We have a great team that is making a very special film and we can’t wait to share it with the world.” 

Sarvann is a coming-of-age story of a young boy who unknowingly discovers his true identity. Directed by Karaan Guliani, the movie stars Amrinder Gill, Ranjit Bawa and Simi Chehail and is written by Amberdeep Singh with music by Jatinder Shah.

While the first schedule of Sarvann has been completed in Canada, the marathon second schedule began on September 5 in Chandigarh on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.
