‘Baywatch’ antagonist was at first set to be a man but to take care of business however the producers chose to change the sex of the character in the wake of meeting Priyanka Chopra.
B-Town ‘can hardly wait’ to watch Priyanka Chopra in “Baywatch”
The Bollywood star will make her Hollywood motion picture debut as wretched Victoria Deeds in the Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson-starrer. Priyanka is eager to play a negative character in the Hollywood project, a reboot of the hit ’90s show of the same name. “It is such a great amount of enjoyable to play a negative character since you have the freedom to leave your customary range of familiarity and do anything. Victoria is an extremely mean character,” Priyanka told PTI in a meeting over telephone from Montreal, Canada. “It (the part) was at first composed for a man and they were conversing with me for another part. In any case, after the executive met me, they thought I would be better as a scoundrel and after that they changed the character to be a female,” said the performer.
She’s one of the biggest stars in the world. Insanely talented, relentlessly smokin’ and extremely dangerous – perfect for #BAYWATCH. Welcome @PriyankaChopra to our bad ass and incredibly dysfunctional family. Cue RATED R slo-mo running on the beach. We start shooting next week. World.. #WelcomeToBaywatch ???????
The star, whose prior negative parts were in Bollywood motion pictures “Aitraaz” and ‘7 Khoon Maaf’, will be seen tackling the Rock and his squad in the Seth Gordon-coordinated film. “It was truly energizing that they changed the part for me. You must be an extremely solid character to tackle ‘The Rock’ and whole lifeguard squad. They will be six while I am distant from everyone else. It looked extremely cool to me,” she said.
