After playing Olympic boxing champ, MC Mary Kom, actor Priyanka Chopra is being widely regarded as the top choice for biopics. However, the 31-year-old, who is also being considered to play the role of top cop Kiran Bedi in a film based on Bedi’s life, says that she won’t be a part of a sport biopic in the future."People have this habit of generalising ... after one film, they think I should do all sports-related biopics. I don’t see myself playing a role in a sports biopic at all," she says.
Asked why she has taken this decision, PeeCee shares, "Not that I didn’t like doing a sportsperson’s biopic, but I like doing different things — playing different characters, doing interesting roles. Just like I did with Aitraaz, Barfi, Don, I want to try and do different roles. I think I will be the best fly ever!" she laughs.

Priyanka, who recently posed with actor Anushka Sharma in response to buzz that the two don’t get along, says that she doesn’t like it that heroines are always pitted against each other. "Why is it that when there are two actors on sets, they call it a bromance, while when there are actresses, they call it a catfight? I think it is extremely sexist. We are all professionals and whatever we do is professional. There is no question of any sort of animosity between women actors."
