Priyanka Chopra has signed a two-year multimillion-dollar first-look television deal with Amazon, Variety reported. According to the publication, it was a meeting with Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke that led to the partnership.

“Priyanka is drawn to exciting original content and characters that can resonate globally. She’s a powerhouse producer, and we are thrilled to collaborate with her for years to come,” Salke told Variety.

Global icon Priyanka Chopra is excited about the collaboration as well.

“My quest really is to be able to tell female stories, work with creators from around the world and create a cross-pollination of storytelling. Amazon is such a great partner to do that because their reach and outlook is so global. My Amazon television deal is a global deal, so I can do Hindi language, I can do English language, I can do whatever language I want,” Priyanka said.

The actor also shared the news with her followers on Instagram and wrote, “YESSSS @amazonstudios, LET’S GET IT!!! So honored and excited to finally share this news with you. ⁣⁣Looking ahead, we already have so much on our slate! Big thank you to @jsalke and her team at Amazon for being such great partners, and for sharing in the belief that talent and good content knows no boundaries.⁣⁣ As both an actor and producer, I have always dreamt of an open canvas of creative talent coming together from all over the world to create great content irrespective of language and geography. This has always been the DNA of my production house Purple Pebble Pictures, and is the foundation of this exciting new endeavor with Amazon.”
