Kangana Ranaut might have competition for the 'badass' card. Priyanka Chopra is now on the cover of Marie Claire's April edition, and the magazine has spared no praise. The actress has been called 'Hollywood's most bankable badass' by the American magazine.  

Chopra's performance as Alex Parrish in Quantico has proved to be a huge hit among television audiences in the United States. The actress is currently shooting the second season of the hit series. She will also be seen playing the villain, Victoria Leeds, in the movie reboot of Baywatch. Having played two spunky, powerful women, it is natural that the actress is being touted as a 'badass'. 

Despite her appearances, Chopra seems to have had some fun at the shoot of the Marie Claire cover. In the video, the actress shared her little fears, and a crush on Tupac Shakur. "I was probably in eighth grade," Chopra added when revealing her crush on the iconic rapper. The actress also revealed that she has a secret superpower. "I am freakishly flexible," Chopra said, "I can, like, put my legs behind my neck and stuff. It's an art." 

Talking about her weakness, Chopra also revealed that she is a 'hoarder'. "I will never throw out anything. I am a hoarder. Whenever my mum comes over for visits, she is like, 'This is from five years ago... Why do you still need this T-shirt?'" 

Since her television debut with Quantico in 2015, Chopra has graced the cover of several international magazines including Elle (USA) , InStyle (USA) , Complex (USA), Emmy (USA), Krimi (Germany), Sette (Italy) ,Flare (Canada), Flaunt (USA) and Women’s Weekly (Malaysia).

The actress currently awaits the release of her first Hollywood film, Baywatch, alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. To be called a 'bankable badass' before the release of her first film is quite the praise for Chopra.
