This Valentine's Day, Priyanka Chopra's next Hollywood project will hit the theatres. PeeCee is out and about to promote her upcoming flick Isn't It Romantic. Well, if you are a fan (well, who isn't?) then you might be damn excited about it, since the actress is going to be on the screen after a long time. But sadly, the Desi girl doesn't really have much to do in the movie. Priyanka has openly confessed that this movie is not about her, which is usually the case here in Bollywood and she only plays a small part in the narrative. However, a little birdie chirps to BollywoodLife that Priyanka is now quite clear and focused that she only wants to do central characters in her upcoming Hollywood projects. Apparently, the actress is eyeing for meatier roles to strengthen her three films old Hollywood career. "She has told her agents to only eye for lead characters, for her upcoming projects," a source close to the lady revealed.
While Priyanka did play the antagonist in her Hollywood debut (Baywatch), post that she did supporting roles in A Kid Like Jake (2018) and in Isn't It Romantic (2019). However, she soon pulled up her socks with Chris Pratt-starrer Cowboy Ninja Viking wherein she was playing Pratt's on-screen love interest. She was also rumoured to play the titular role in Seth Gorden's directorial Tulia based on the famous American lawyer. However, the Chris Pratt starrer was shut down indefinitely by Universal, and there are no updates of Tulia either.
Nevertheless, it seems Priyanka is now keen to do only meatier roles and we have some suggestions. Since we have watched her movies since 2003, we kinda get how the audience would like to see her on-screen. Now these movies and actresses are mere references, we aren't implying that she should copy them or she could have done a better job than the ones who played the character.
Savage princess: Priyanka became the name she is today after playing a critically acclaimed negative character in Aitraaz. Her character is one of the most memorable ones from her career. She did the same in Baywatch, but we were thinking, how about something like Angelina Jolie's Maleficent act? Cruel, sultry and evil, we think PeeCee can pull that off with much panache.
Rockstar: Priyanka is a singer as well. So how about a movie like A Star is Born, wherein she gets to show her two talents at the same time? I'm already rooting for a movie wherein Priyanka is playing a singer! Remember her Tinka Tinka act? Just imagine it in her vocals.
Superhero: There were rumours that Priyanka Chopra could be joining the Marvel gang, playing the Pakistani superheroine Ms Marvel aka Kamala Khan. She even lent her voice for the game. PeeCee has also expressed her interest to play a DC heroine, and we really think as a supergirl, Priyanka would do full justice to it! Uhh, I can already imagine her in the superhero suit, fighting along with the Justice League or the Avengers.
A damsel fighting the evil forces: Priyanka has never really tried the horror genre, even in Bollywood. So to see her running away from the evil and then fighting them back would be quite refreshing. Last year A Quiet Place had a strong female character played by Emily Blunt. Maybe something on the same lines then?
Periodic character with a sense of humour: Priyanka has proven that she can ace a historical saga. Period movies are a child's play for her. And it's been a long time since we have seen her playing a funny character. Remember Emma Stone's The Favorite! A perfect option.
Well, these are our suggestions. Let us know if you have more options for Priyanka! Tweet to us @bollywood_life.
