After ruling Bollywood for years, Priyanka Chopra is now ruling the West. Not only has she become a household name in America courtesy her famous show –‘Quantico’, she is now a true global icon with her pictures appearing on top International magazine and billboards across the world.
Priyanka has won the People’s choice award for the Best Actress in a new series and has appeared on lot of popular award functions, including the Oscars and Emmys (where she even presented awards) post the success of Quantico. PeeCee is now all set to make her big Hollywood debut with ‘Baywatch’ . Though the film has quite a few stars including Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron, she has a huge part in the film. Priyanka plays the antagonist – Victoria Leeds in the film.
Priyanka Chopra revealed in an interview that she didn’t want to play a sidekick in the film and hence, she came on board for ‘Baywatch’ only when she was assured a prominent part. In fact, she is very clear that she will not play any actor’s sidekick from now.
In an interview to Hindustan Times, while talking about ‘Baywatch’ , she mentioned, “I enjoyed playing an antagonist in this film too. In fact, the interesting part was that the villain’s role was actually written for a man. A role written for a guy, but played by a woman — that was a big win for me. I never like to walk the path of convention. I didn’t want to play a sidekick. I was clear about this even when I signed my TV show. I said I am a lead actor and I am used to seeing my face on a poster. I am never going to settle for less. The same rule applies even to my movies.”
