Priyanka Chopra's second Hollywood outing "A Kid Like Jake" has been grabbing headlines since its inception. Even though the film had Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the lead, it tanked miserably at the Box Office. Firstly, the film stars Homeland's Claire Danes and The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, both phenomenal actors in their own stride. He is fascinated more by fairytales than the toy-cars and is intrigued to know, "why boys can't wear a skirt". It is after her suggestion that this Brooklyn couple rethinks about their role as parents.
The trailer focuses more on Danes and Parsons, with Oscar victor Octavia Spencer, who plays Jake's teacher, getting more footage. A Kid Like Jake has been scripted by Daniel Pearle, who also wrote the play of the same name. "Kindergarten is so hard for a child, you know, who." she says at dinner with her husband and Jake's parents. When the school counselor, Judy (Octavia Spencer), suggests they play up Jake's "gender expansive play", they begin to question if playing up Jake's differences will, well, make him feel different. The drama flick was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2018 and got a standing ovation from the audience.
The Quantico star took to Instagram to inform about the meet and posted a photo too. "A story that needed to be told and seen". Post that her first live action Hollywood film, Baywatch, failed to impress the critics and fans worldwide.
