The first month of 2018 has been a busy one for actress Priyanka Chopra. She has been shooting the third season of her American television show, Quantico, and flew to Park City, Utah to promote A Kid Like Jake (2018) at the Sundance Film Festival. She was present with director Silas Howard and co-stars Jim Parsons, Claire Danes and Octavia Spencer as they faced the international media.

The director and cast did interviews with Variety, The Wrap, IMDb Studio and many other outlets. The film, adapted by the stage play, has its world premiere on 23 January at the festival.

The actress impressed with her casual but chic winter wear. She wore an off-white Michelle Mason turtleneck sweater with Ralph Lauren camouflage jeans, and dark green jacket. The look was topped off with a Gigi Burris fedora and black Christian Louboutin boot-heels.

Besides her cast, Chopra also hung out with other celebrities. She posted a photo with the singer-actor Usher who is also promoting his film, Burden (2018), at the festival. She attended the film's premiere in the night.

A Kid Like Jake (2018) is about a young boy, about to join kindergarten, who is gender variant and how his parents, played by Parsons and Danes, deal with the whole process. Chopra plays another parent whose child befriends Jake.

Chopra shared her thoughts about the film on Instagram, “So proud to be a part of #AKidLikeJake, a story that humanizes the struggle of parents trying to do right by their kid. This film breaks down the barriers of being socially correct, and encourages you to embraces the qualities that makes each one of us unique. So happy to bring my support to this already stellar cast. See you at the pictures... #SundanceFilmFestival”.

She told Indiewire that she found the story “topical, relevant, and it’s something people are scared of." She went on to say, "People are afraid of using the wrong term or offending someone, or not knowing what is right or what is wrong. What I love about this movie is that it doesn’t tell you that.”
