Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra has put herself in the running to be the first female James Bond.

The 37-year-old actor is a massive fan of the British spy drama franchise, and thinks it's definitely time for a female 007 agent and thinks she is the perfect candidate.

"I've always been keen on (playing James Bond) but I can't put myself into the race obviously," she told Britain's Metro newspaper.


"I think, in my lifetime it would be amazing to have a female Bond. Whether that's me or someone else, it's something I would love to see."

The Baywatchstar made it clear she's a serious contender and, when asked which actor she could see stepping into Daniel Craig's shoes, she joked, "Me!"

"I don't know, I would just be very happy with the fact that it would be a woman," the former Miss World asserted. "I definitely think it's time."


The shooting recently wrapped on the 25th Bond movie titled No Time To Die, which is rumoured to be Craig's fifth and final outing in the role.

Priyanka is gearing up for the release of her next The Sky Is Pink which is slated to hit the screens on October 11.

Director Shonali Bose's "upcoming project is about a couple that lose their daughter to pulmonary fibrosis, a serious immunity disease. The film has Priyanka and actor Farhan Akhtar acting as parents of the girl.
