Ac­tor Priyanka Cho­pra (above) says be­ing able to play a char­ac­ter with shades of grey is the best part about her new Hol­ly­wood film. The ac­tor, who also fea­tures in Amer­i­can TV show Quan­tico, feels that play­ing a vil­lain is like an ad­dic­tion as “we don’t get to do that in real life”.

“The best part of work­ing on the film 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 my char­ac­ter Vic­to­ria is a bitch,” Priyanka said. The ac­tor spoke about her maiden Hol­ly­wood project in an interview to Flare Magazine, a Cana­dian fash­ion magazine.

The movie is based on the hugely pop­u­lar 1990s TV se­ries. Priyanka es­says main char­ac­ter Vic­to­ria Leeds in it.

Priyanka says that her char­ac­ter 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 the film was get­ting on my 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.
