Apart from setting screens afire in Bollywood and, later, Hollywood through her roles in Baywatch (2017) and drama-series Quantico (2015-18), Priyanka Chopra has opened up her purse strings for more mundane pursuits, relatively speaking. In 2015, she and her mother launched Purple Pebble Pictures, a film and TV studio to promote regional filmmakers. In 2018, she made her first big investment in Bumble, a dating app, following up with an investment in Holberton School for software engineering—a coding education start-up. In 2021, she invested in US-based rental marketplace Apartment List; and in Genies, a virtual avatar firm, along with Camila Cabello and Paris Hilton. She also opened a restaurant—Sona—in New York, and released her own line of sustainable hair care products titled Anomaly.
