PRIYANKA’S POWER LUNCH
The actor, a Tribeca film fest jury member, meets Robert De Niro
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.
