Priyanka or Deepika: Who will score the next James Bond movie?
It seems that Bollywood’s Mastani and Kashibai are going head to head once again, but this time it isn’t for Bajirao’s affection.
The two Bollywood beauties Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, are interested in being Bond’s leading lady in the next James Bond movie.
According to Pinkvilla, the two Bollywood-turned-Hollywood actors are contending for the role. Currently, both PeeCee and Deepika are in the US shooting for their respective Hollywood projects, and both of them have already auditioned for the role.
‘Priyanka has outdone herself in Hollywood’
A source told Pinkvilla, “Deepika is finishing the final leg of xXx — she had given them bulk dates for the film. And over the past 18 months, Priyanka Chopra has been shooting for Quantico, and only recently she started work on Baywatch too. Both actresses have very strong teams there who are deftly managing their work and have been pitching them to various Hollywood studios. And they have also made it clear to their respective agents that they are not interested in doing two-bit roles.”
The source added, “Who wouldn’t want to be the Bond girl? It’s a role that’s on everyone’s wish list but only the chosen one gets it. Now, it’s entirely up to the makers.”
Does Samuel Jackson think Deepika’s real name is Piku?
While both actors are strong contenders and have expressed an interest in coming aboard the Bond team, there are a few other names that are being considered.
