Actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas has been in awe of American filmmakers Anthony Russo and Joe Russo since collaborating with them on Amazon Prime Video Series Citadel. Recently, the actor shared how Joe is the one who keeps “juggling” between different movies and Anthony is more “introverted”.
Speaking of the directing duo, Priyanka told Variety that Joe is a director who keeps switching from one project to the next, but in the midst of this hassle keeps in mind to find the best places to eat. She said, “Joe is a 500-mile-per-minute person who juggles mail on one movie and prep for another while shooting another, finding the best spots for the best food.”
Priyanka Chopra also shared how Anthony is clearer in his mind. He knows everything that happens behind the scenes and comes up with a clear plan of action. ‘Anthony is more introverted, but he has a tremendous clarity of thought. When you talk to him, he knows a lot about what goes on behind the scenes and what the big plan is,” said the actor.
The director duo previously praised PeeCee. When indianexpress.com asked Russo Brothers about working with the Desi Girl at Citadel, Joe Russo said, “She’s an incredible star. I mean, I think she’s been great.”
Anthony Russo had previously said Priyanka Chopra’s casting for Citadel was an “intelligent” decision. During a panel discussion, he said, “When Jennifer Salke (head of Amazon Studios) brought up Priyanka, it was like a light bulb went out. It was so intelligent and so smart because Priyanka represents the essence of what we’re trying to do with the show.” The fact that she’s done such an amazing job in India and internationally… she has a kind of dual identity – a foot in both worlds.”
In addition to Priyanka, Citadel also stars with Game of Thrones and Bodyguard fame’s Richard Madden. The series has been described as “an action-packed spy series with a compelling emotional center.”
