Priyanka Chopra's new Hollywood movie 'A Kid Like Jake' trailer is here

Baywatch star Priyanka Chopra describes losing movie role because of her skin colour

Despite starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron and riding on high hopes, Baywatch was trashed by the critics and flopped at the box office.

After featuring in Baywatch, Priyanka Chopra is back on screen with her second Hollywood film titled A kid like Jake.

In the trailer, it is shown that a couple (Claire and Jim) living in Brooklyn has a four-year-old son who is interested in princess and fairy tales. Jake's parents Alex and Greg, like any other parents, are on a spree to find the best school for their kid when they are told by Judy to talk about Jake's "gender-expansive plan". The movie has been directed by Silas Howard, known for directing movies like By Hook or by Crook and the second season of the Amazon web series Transparent which deals with the life of a transgender. The script of A Kid Like Jake is penned by Daniel Pearle who has written a play with the same name. With an all-star cast and an authentic take on a topical issue, "A Kid Like Jake" is a huge step forward for trans cinema. Oscar Winning actress Octavia Spencer, plays Jake's teacher.

Apart from A Kid Like Jake, Priyanka Chopra will also be seen in a supporting role in Isn't It Romantic alongside Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth. The drama flick was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2018 and got a standing ovation from the audience.

Priyanka Chopra has revealed that she once lost out on a film role because of her skin colour, in a revealing interview with InStyle magazine.
