New Delhi [India] July 18(ANI): Global star Priyanka Chopra turned 36 today.
On her special day, the 'Quantico' star introduced a special set of benefits for the female employees at her production house Purple Pebble Pictures.
Making it feasible and comfortable for the employees to work here, PeeCee has made changes including flexible working hours for mothers, maternity leave benefits, a creche arrangement and monetary assistance for post-pregnancy care, to encourage a gender-neutral working environment.
Confirming the news, Priyanka's mother and Director at Purple Pebble Pictures Madhu Chopra said, "We had to keep the interests of the 80 per cent female staff who is married in mind. The idea was simply about why should women's life choices become professional hurdles? The policy of flexible timings for mothers was set in place by Priyanka, but fine-tuned by senior members of our company."
"Priyanka wanted to create an environment where women feel "safe and loved," her mother added.
The 'Baywatch' actress has always been a torchbearer and a shining example of a 'SHERO' and is considered one of the most influential and powerful female social voices of the country.
On the work front, Priyanka just concluded shooting for her upcoming Hollywood movie 'Isn't It Romantic' - which also features Liam Hemsworth and Rebel Wilson, among others.
Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson, 'Isn't It Romantic' is scheduled for a Valentine's Day 2019 release.
PeeCee will also start working on another Bollywood project, 'Bharat' with Salman Khan. (ANI)
