Bollywood actress and Quantico star Priyanka Chopra who was recently honored with Padma Shri and listed in the Time’s 100 most influential list, is back to shoot the second schedule of her upcoming Hollywood debut Baywatch. This time in Savannah, Georgia.
In a candid photo shared by the official Twitter handle of Baywatch the desi girl can be seen chilling with her co-stars including Dwayne the Rock Johnson, Jon Bass, Zac Efron, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera and Alexandra Daddario at a beach. Priyanka in a little pink dress looks different as the rest of the actors are clad in swimwear. No wonder, she is different in the film too being an antagonist.
Baywatch Victoria Is Back
Later, Priyanka Chopra took shared a picture of herself on Instagram wherein she is seen looking at the sea.
This is what the 33-year-old actress quoted, “As the sea breeze kisses my hair..We have a conversation..the kind only we can have.. #BAYWATCH Victoria is back! #savannah.”
Priyanka Chopra, The Bad Girl
No wonder, post grabbing Baywatch Priyanka has taken Hollywood by storm. The desi girl will be essaying a negative role in the film which is quite different from the roles she has played back home in Bollywood films so far. Except Aitraaz, Pee Cee usually essayed the role of a protagonist in all her films. This is the reason why PC’s role is turning so many heads after knowing that the Bollywood diva is all set for a negative role.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Priyanka quoted -,
“I met the director (Seth Gordon) on Skype. The negative part was actually written for a man. I spoke to him for another role in the film, but he liked the idea of me playing the negative role despite being a woman. So, the script was reworked.”
Meanwhile, Priyanka’s co-star Dwayne Johnson has praised the 33-year-old actor on making it to the list of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World this year.
He had written,
“Before ever meeting Priyanka Chopra, I had heard her name coming out of Bollywood and was impressed: she was beautiful, talented, had made nearly 50 movies, earned multiple awards-a massive star. When we connected around the time she started Quantico, we immediately hit it off. She has drive, ambition, self-respect, and she knows there’s no substitute for hard work.”
Now I’m lucky enough to be working with her on Baywatch. It’s an amazing time to watch as she pierces the US market. She has an ability to inspire people to do more and achieve more. When I look at her success from the 50,000-ft. view and see everything that Priyanka has already done, is currently doing and has the desire and the bandwidth to do, I can see that her impact is going to be invaluable,” he added.
Priyanka recently wished him in a grand way too on social media by sharing this photo –
We are now eagerly waiting for May 19, 2017 as the film is slated to hit the screens on the same day.
That reminds us of Pee Cee’s time in White House where she dinned with the Obamas!
