We might still be centuries away from Bollywood reaching the Enlightened Age and producing its own take on Bridesmaids, but Hollywood rolls ahead with female-led ensemble flicks. The latest in this spree includes news about a girl-powered reboot of Ocean’s Eleven that is tipped to star Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, and possibly even Helena Bonham Carter. Something’s not right here, though.
This begs the question.
What about Priyanka Chopra?
The Pokémon-catching queen of Bollywood has continued to make huge strides in Hollywood, having just wrapped up production on Baywatch. She’s also into filming the second season of Quantico, where she’s honed her stealth’n’spy chops. This is nothing to say about the incredible versatility she’s shown with her oeuvre of 50+ Bollywood films. Essentially, without Chopra to round out the ranks of these action queens, any girl-powered Ocean’s Eleven reboot would probably just be trash.
So, get to work, Hollywood. Don’t be trash. Do right by all of us and get Chopra on your call sheet and stat.
