If there was something that was making noise the last couple of months was the buzz who the next James Bond will be. For the unaware, the latest Bond flick No Time To Die will be the last film that will have Daniel Craig play the iconic spy. The hunt for the heir to the title was on and made quite a lot of headlines. There was also a possibility that it will be a woman. The argument that it isn’t the right thing to give it a role reversal and given the female lead a new character is still evident.
While all of that continues to find momentum, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who is now promoting her memoir Unfinished has expressed her wish to be the first female James Bond if it ever happens. The actor has time and again expressed this. In a recent chat, she was asked about her previous comments on Bond films. She cleared that she wants to do it sure, but in the first place, it needs to happen.
As per We Got This Covered, Priyanka Chopra Jonas said, “I mean it’s not up to me to make it a thing. It’ s up to people to be ready to watch a female Bond. We can keep talking about it, but someone’s got to make it,” said Chopra. “And if it ever gets made, I would obviously love to throw my name in the mix, as I have, as I will.”
