She's the evil CEO of Heroics, a team of superheroes who're kidnapped by tentacled aliens in the film's opening scenes. With the planet under attack and their parents in peril, it falls upon their children, led by Missy Moreno (YaYa Gosselin) to rescue them from the aliens and save the world."
At the time of sharing the trailer of the film, Priyanka had written: "Power comes in all sizes and it arrives on Christmas Day! These amazing kids have a secret weapon - Teamwork. It brought a different energy on set and is the life of this film. So while you wait for Santa, it's time to sit back and let these incredible kids show you how to be a HERO! Are you in? We Can Be Heroes, directed by Robert Rodriguez is now coming to Netflix globally this Christmas."
Priyanka plays the chief of an organisation of superheroes. When the heroes are captured by alien invaders, the responsibility to save them, and the world, falls on the shoulders of their children.
The actor has been stationed in London for the shoot of her upcoming film, Text for You. Her husband, singer Nick Jonas is also with her.
