As Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra is gearing up for her Hollywood debut Baywatch, playing the villain to Dwayne, ‘The Rock’, she says being able to play a character with shades of grey is the best part about it all.
The actor, who also features in American TV show Quantico, feels being bad is like an addiction as “we don’t get to do that in real life”.
“The best part of working on Baywatch is to be the villain of the movie. I don’t think The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson has ever had anyone who’s been mean to him. He’s a great guy, but Victoria is a b*tch,” Priyanka said about her Baywatch character, Victoria Leeds.
Chopra spoke about her maiden Hollywood project in an interview to Canadian fashion magazine, Flare.
Baywatch, the film, is based on the hugely popular 1990s TV series of the same name. And Priyanka plays the villain Victoria Leeds in it.
Priyanka says Victoria “is mean and patronising and evil just because she can be and I don’t know if Dwayne’s ever had that”.
“So to me that was the best part of doing Baywatch and getting in my high high heels and on my tippy toes and doing mean things and getting away with it. I enjoyed it way more than I should. Being bad is like an addiction, because we don’t get to do that in real life,” she added.
Baywatch is an American action drama series about the Los Angeles Country Lifeguards who patrol the beaches full of bikini clad beauties.
The show was canceled after its first season on NBC, but survived and later became one of the most watched television shows in the world. – CINEWS
