The representative goes on to add that the Citadel actress will not be involved as a creative partner moving forward but she remains in the SONA family and they are excited for their new chapters ahead. Also, bringing SONA to life will continue to be special and proud moment in Priyanka’s career. So, stepping away from this will allow the actor to broaden her ambitions on a global scale, so she is excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for her.

SONA interestingly is named by Priyanka Chopra’s singer-songwriter-actor, hubby Nick Jonas.
