We all know that Priyanka Chopra is basically taking over the world one movie star at a time, so when she was confirmed to star with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Zac Efron in the 'Baywatch'​ remake, AND playing a negative character on top of that, we were reasonably excited.

But the actress has recently revealed that the character was originally written for a man!

Priyanka's Victoria Deeds (her Baywatch character) is not her first outing as a negative character, she has played the villain in movies (pretty amazingly, if I may add!) like Aitraaz and 7 Khoon Maaf.

"​It is so much fun to play a negative character because you have the liberty to go out of your comfort zone and do anything. Victoria is a very mean character,"​ she said in the interview.
