From The Rock to the Avengers, Priyanka Chopra seems to be setting her targets high. Avengers co-director Joe Russo, who is in Mumbai for a promotional tour, confirmed that he is in talks with the actress in 'personal' capacity for a project. However, the director refused to go into further details. 

Russo said, "Priyanka is transitioning into global status now. She is fantastic... [I would] love to work with her... I am potentially talking to Priyanka for something. I am not going to say what it is." 

The director joined music composer-singer AR Rahman at the Taj Land's End hotel in Mumbai to launch the Hindi version of the Avengers: Endgame anthem. Composed by Rahman, the song is set to be a part of the Hindi version of the much-awaited summer blockbuster. 

The confirmation from Russo has just added more wind to the rumours of the more ethnic Marvel superhero, Kamala Khan, finding a way into the universe. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige had announced last year that the studio is looking at the possibility of introducing more ethnic superheroes into the universe after the success of Black Panther (2018) and Captain Marvel (2019). 

Chopra made her debut on American television in the ABC series, Quantico, in 2015 before going on to star alongside Dwayne Johnson in Baywatch (2017) and the more recent, Isn't It Romantic? (2019).
