NEW DELHI — Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has no time for being typecast as the next sexy girl to ride James Bond’s coattails.

In an interview with Complex magazine, the Quantico star revealed her contemplations on the role, and even shared why she would rather play the super-spy.

At the point when asked by a leading American daily if she would like to be the next Bond girl, Priyanka stated, “I get that all the time. But f**k that — I wanna be Bond.”  She added, “I don’t know where I will win, but I know I want to keep moving, keep going. When I achieve something then I’m like, all right, what’s next?”

Chopra made the jump from Bollywood to Hollywood with Quantico a year ago. The ABC TV ABC TV series, renewed for a season 2, stars the Indian actress as a recruit at the FBI Academy in Quantico.

In her upcoming Baywatch film, she did get to play a gender-swapped part — her villain character was originally scripted to be a man.

Chopra returned to Mumbai after a long spell of shooting in Canada and the US for TV show ‘Quantico’ and Hollywood flick, ‘Baywatch’.
