Priyanka Chopra’s success in America is based on one and one principle alone: Why settle for less? The Baywatch star proved how focussed she is when she posed on the cover of Complex magazine and answered some tough ones.

When the Bollywood star was asked by Complex magazine if she would play the next Bond girl, she had the best comeback: “I get that all the time. But f--k that — I wanna be Bond.” Priyanka then slayed it all over again with a sexy photoshoot for the magazine’s cover. Move over Kim Kardashian, Priyanka will break the internet now.

Talking about fighting racial stereotypes in America, she said in the interview, “I was very sure I did not want to be the stereotype of what Indian people are seen as, which is Bollywood, and henna. That’s all great! It’s what we are, and I love it. I love saris; I love music; I love henna; I love dancing, but that’s not all we are.”

The actor, who has become the face of diversity on American TV with her starring role in Quantico, added, “I wanted to be seen as just an actor, not because of my ethnicity or where I come from. I think global entertainment needs to become like that. It needs to be about the best person for the job rather than what you look like or where you come from. And I wanted to be one of the first people to take a step in that direction.”
