The Rock promises Priyanka Chopra will ‘slay’ Baywatch

While her fans in India are simmering at the blink-and-you-will-miss footage Priyanka Chopra managed to get in the first trailer of Baywatch, her Hollywood debut opposite Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock, we at Hindustan Times asked the star why she was given such little airtime and the star obliged us with an answer.

While her fans in India are simmering at the blink-and-you-will-miss footage Priyanka Chopra managed to get in the first trailer of Baywatch, her Hollywood debut opposite Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock, we at Hindustan Times asked the star why she was given such little airtime and the star obliged us with an answer from his Twitter handle.

Take a look at this.

Priyanka, then took to Twitter and thanked Dwayne. “lol...thank you DJ...trusted you from day one. India loves you and will love everything about Baywatch! #Wait4VictoriaLeeds @TheRock” she wrote.

Priyanka is seen a small shot in the trailer.

The R-rated (equivalent to A certificate) humour will have to wait until we get a red-band trailer, but there are more than enough glimpses of it here, especially in the banter between The Rock and Zac Efron’s characters.

Baywatch opens on May 26, 2017. It is directed by Horrible Bosses’ Seth Gordon and also stars Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera, Kelly Rohrbach and others.
