Priyanka took to Instagram Stories on Tuesday to share the latest ranking of the most popular films on Netflix. The White Tiger ranked the highest, followed by Outside the Wire and Priyanka’s other Hollywood film, We Can Be Heroes.

“So excited to see #TheWhiteTigerNetflix is the no.1 film on Netflix worldwide!! Thank you so much for all the support. Keep watching and let me know what you think,” she wrote with her post.

She has also co-produced the film.

The White Tiger released on January 22 to widespread critical acclaim. The Hindustan Times review read, “It’s a star-making performance by newcomer Adarsh Gourav, who not only manages to grab the proverbial bull by the horns, but also reins it in. He’s an Angry Young Man for post-Modi India, much like what Amitabh Bachchan was for the Emergency generation — an embodiment of rage, restlessness and rebellion directed at the establishment.”

On Tuesday, Adarsh even earned a nomination at the Independent Spirit Awards in Best Male Lead category. Netflix has been pushing for Priyanka and Rajkummar in best supporting actors categories for the awards season as well.

Priyanka has now begun work on her next film, Citadel with the Russo Brothers. The film also stars Richard Madden of Game of Thrones and Bodyguard fame.
