Priyanka Chopra just won the Woman Of The Year Award at IIFA. And she is riding the success of not only Quantico, but would also be starring with Dwane Johnson in upcoming Hollywood flick Baywatch.

When she was quizzed about how Indian actors are getting substantial roles in flicks abroad, she said,

Oh, absolutely! That was always the idea. Honestly, I am in a very happy space right now. Most people don’t know that, initially, the character of the villain in Baywatch was written for a man. And I was offered a different role. But I chose not to play the sidekick. And Victor became Victoria.
