There has been a lot of buzz around Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood debut Baywatch, which is the film adaptation of the hit TV series Baywatch. However, Priyanka’s fans were surprised to not find her on the film’s first picture that was released last week.

Now, we have been told that this was strategic. The makers of the film, which also stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, plan to release a special poster for Priyanka, who plays the villain in the movie.

The first official Baywatch picture featured Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera, Kelly Rohrbach and Jon Bass but no Priyanka.
