Naomi Scott, who portrays Princess Jasmine in Aladdin, says she would love to play a Disney villain.

After starring in the 2019 live action musical fantasy film, which is the re-imagination of the 1992 animated classic from Walt Disney Pictures, Naomi wants to turn baddie on screen.

"I would love to actually play a Disney villain! Although this wouldn't work for me, I would love to play Cruella De Vil. She is not a nice person but so much fun to play, so I would probably love to play a Disney villain," she said.

But she enjoyed playing Jasmine too. About shooting for the Guy Ritchie directorial, she said, "I remember when I met Will Smith. We were in a gym and they had like shower cubicles and I had showered, got ready and had put a towel on my head, had no make-up on, I walked out and he was like running up and down! I thought I am going to meet Will Smith. So, I just shouted ‘Will!' And he like turned around and I realised I had such a long way to get to him. I was like this is going to be awkward as he has no idea who I am. He has just seen who is coming to him, who is like some random girl with a towel on her head. So I got to him and I said ‘Oh, I play Jasmine and he was like ‘oh!'"

"He is incredible and he doesn't make you feel like a weirdo and then Guy Ritchie came and I was standing there with a towel on my head. Will Smith and Guy Ritchie there was like a treadmill and I was so perplexed I was like ‘What is my life?! This is incredible!'. So, there were many surreal moments even at the premiere. I was just like standing thinking ‘Wow! this is just amazing to be part of something so iconic', I felt very blessed," she added.
