Priyanka Chopra is literally ruling Hollywood at the moment. The west is so smitten by our desi girl that they seem to never get enough of her. And we managed to catch up with the Baywatch babe here in Mumbai a few weeks back. PC was happy to be home and chilling with her friends, but currently she is busy promoting her debut Hollywood feature film in London. We saw how the crowds went crazy for the actress in Berlin and the US media totally adores her. Back home when Priyanka was here we quizzed her why she didn't choose to play one of the love interests of the two hot looking male leads Zac Efron or Dwayne Johnson. Priyanka won us over with her response.
On ditching the bikini to play a villain opposite The Rock, Priyanka said, "I’m not in a swimsuit in this one." When we probed her further she said, "There is no debate on why. I would choose a baddie over a bikini. It’s a much better character. Wearing a bikini is easy; you can do it on a cover of a magazine. You don’t need a movie for that, you choose movie for characters. And my character was extremely intriguing to me. It was written for a guy and I recently found out who was it written for. Actually it was a really big actor, and so that made me feel more pressure. Ask Seth (Gordon)… you all can ask Seth, I can’t obviously talk about it. That put more pressure on me, but Seth thought it would be fun to have a female antagonist. So it was a lot of fun for me to play that’s why I chose it."
We also played a fun "Guess the bikini babe" game with the Quantico actress and Priyanka confessed, "Ladkiyon ki bodies nahi dekhti main." Of course she laughed in inimitable PC style and continued to be a sport. Once she began there was no stopping the actress who went on to make some very candid confessions. After guessing almost every picture accurately Priyanka quipped, " I need to go to the gym..."
When PC cracked the first one she was excited and asked to bring on more quizzes. When we showed the actress one of her own pics, she went on say - "This body I recognise guys, the only woman's body I recognise." The actress couldn't stop gushing about Anushka Sharma's pic and said, "Very nice! Who has these abs?" But it was Kangana Ranaut's body that got Priyanka inspired, she said, "Amazing her body looks. I need to go to the gym... I'm very inspired looking at these bodies right now guys. Next time you will see me it will be with abs like that." Even when we told Priyanks that she could easily pull off a two-piece she insisted, "Bikini is fine I want those abs, that's a really like worked out toned abs."
Priyanka also defended Deepika Padukone in this same interview when the western press failed to recognise the Piku actress and confused her with PC. The actress' Baywatch is all set to release in theatres on June 2. Stay tuned for the movie review right here!
