Mumbai: After a long break, India's global star Priyanka Chopra is back in Mumbai to spend quality time with her family on her birthday, which is in July 18, and took out some time to hold a press conference for her second Marathi production 'Kaay Re Raascala'.

During the media interaction, PC spoke at length about the aims and objectives of her production house Purple Pebble Pictures that she co-founded with her mother Dr. Madhu Chopra. Reminiscing her own struggling days in Bollywood, Priyanka said, "We established Purple Pebble to promote new talents and give them the opportunities that they deserve. Despite being Miss World, it was extremely difficult for me to make a place in Bollywood. We really want to take chances with new talents and open the doors for them, be it musicians, directors, script writers, actors."

Adding to what PeeCee said about personal struggles and embracing fresh talents looking for that one opportunity to prove their mettle as creative personas, her mother, Dr. Chopra, said, "Our mandate at Purple Pebble Pictures was to give approachable place for new talents. We firmly believe in encouraging new talent... When she (Priyanka Chopra) came to Mumbai, she found it really difficult, even though she came as Miss World."

Priyanka, who recently shot for two Hollywood films-- A Kid Like Jake and Isn't It Romantic-- said that she is in 'conversation' regarding new projects, both for her next Bollywood film and the stories that she is going to be producing. She will reveal the names once "they green light them."
