Priyanka Cho­pra’s Hol­ly­wood ca­reer is go­ing from strength to strength. The ac­tor is a jury mem­ber at the Tribeca Film Fes­ti­val, and at­tended the fest in New York, where she met Hol­ly­wood vet­eran Robert De Niro, one of the Tribeca fes­ti­val founders, co-founder Janet Ribeca, and star come­di­enne Whoopi Gold­berg.

“Priyanka is judg­ing the doc­u­men­tary and stu­dent vi­sion­ary com­pe­ti­tions at this pres­ti­gious film fes­ti­val, along with co-jury mem­bers such as Ryan Eg­gold, Olivia Thirlby, Ileen Gal­lagher and Bren­dan Fraser,” says a source, adding, “Ap­par­ently, the jury mem­bers and Robert De Niro had an elab­o­rate lunch, where they dis­cussed cin­ema across the world. Some of the jury mem­bers con­grat­u­lated Priyanka on her look and char­ac­ter in her Hol­ly­wood de­but fea­ture film.” The ac­tor is al­ready a star in the US, thanks to her TV se­ries.

“De Niro also took [the jury] through his fa­ther’s art, dis­played at the venue,” says the source. Priyanka couldn’t be reached for a com­ment.
