New Delhi: Bollywood's desi girl Priyanka Chopra is making the right noise across the globe. The 'Quantico' girl is a household name in Hollywood now with her successful stint in television and her pivotal part in an upcoming film 'Baywatch'.
PeeCee is really the girl of the moment—be it her grand red carpet entries at all the major award shows or her recent Emmys twirling act—we indeed were left asking for more.
Speaking about her 'Baywatch' character, according to ANI, Priyanka was quoted as telling Interview Magazine, “She is extremely feminine, very evil, extremely delectable, manipulative and patronizing, which is not at all Alex (her character from Quantico). These are completely different people.”
"Victoria is strong because she has minions. She has people do her dirty work. She doesn`t look at how to get results, she just gets them. She doesn`t have morality. But also ... it`s a comedy," added the 34-year-old actress.
"It was so much fun to be able to create Victoria in Baywatch. It was awesome to bring that black evilness into their positive, beautiful world."
Talking about how it was working with director Seth Gordon, she said, "It was so much fun. Seth Gordon, the director, is huge a collaborator, and same with Josh Safran, for that matter, on Quantico-I`ve been very fortunate that the people I`ve worked with have been such collaborators when it comes to my characters."
Adding, "It wasn`t ever difficult being Victoria, it was just creating. And the joy of creating is the truest joy. I don`t enjoy being told what to do, I`m not that kind of actor, I`m a thinking actor. I need to work with people who have the ability to do that. Both Seth and Josh really have a sense of belief in what I bring to the table. I`m very grateful that they have that in me."
