Priyanka is tasting success in Hollywood with her TV series Quantico. Not just this TV series, she will also be making her Hollywood debut with the film Baywatch.
Baywatch is based on the 1989 TV series of the same name. It is directed by Seth Gordon and will release next summer. Priyanka plays a negative role in the film.
While talking to an event, she confirms his thoughts about movie and reason why she took the interest in playing this role.
“I am not worried. Baywatch is a comedy film … I don’t know. It is a certification board and hopefully, we get certified,” Priyanka said at an event.
She is playing the negative role in the movie, she explained why she love doing negative roles.
“I did Aitraz, Saath Khoon Maaf… I enjoy doing villain roles and that’s why I did Baywatch. But its a comedy film,” she said, “I play Victoria… Lifeguards have to protect themselves and the beach against Victoria who wants to destroy them.”
“We all have loved the Baywatch TV show in India. I am looking forward to seeing how people react to my character as it’s a debut in Hollywood with a negative character,” said Priyanka.
Actress also claims that her role will not impress American viewers but his efforts will surely get recognition in India. She also had the good experience doing this movie. She also got a chance to showcase his talent in Hollywood. It will the stereotype about Indian actors and more talent will be picked up from here in near future. She has already been accepted there and she will try to create space for Indian actors.
“I don’t think people of America are going to like me … It was great experience doing this film. It was a collaborative effort from all of us, we all were very impromptu in cracking jokes for the film,” she added.
“I want to break the stereotype about Indian actors … we have talent, hence I got a TV show (Quantico), a film (Baywatch). I don’t want to be like someone else. I always wanted to grow up and be Priyanka Chopra,” she said.
“You admire qualities of people … I admire a lot of people and I imbibe their best qualities. You have to find what is unique about you and the best version of yourself,” she added.
She also confirmed that this movie is just a beginning and she will be doing better characters in more movies there. She also claims that she has yet to start her Hollywood career.
“I don’t think by doing one film in Hollywood I am done. My television show has been very successful. I take credit for that. My film career there (Hollywood) has not started yet, so I can’t harp about it just because I have a film there,” she said.
“I feel it is just the beginning. Indian actors deserve respect. We have been boxed into a certain thing, but we can do much, so I want to be able to open doors for us. I hope they (Indian actors) are more successful than me,” she said.
She also confirmed that she never plan her careers and focus on the opportunities she has in hands. So, it is hard to say what kind of movies she will be doing. The same thing is about Bollywood. She never plans.
