After lukewarm response both critically and commercially, Priyanka Chopra’s debut Hollywood film Baywatch will open in India on June 2. But before being released to the general public, a special screening of the film was held for industry folk on Wednesday, after which Varun Dhawan congratulated The Rock and Priyanka in one of the few positive reactions to the movie.

“#baywatch is fun in the sand. @TheRock brings the humour like only he can and @priyankachopra is badass. I laughed throughout,” he wrote on Twitter.

Priyanka and The Rock responded to the tweet. “Thank you brotha! Me and @priyankachopra talked about how much you (and India) will enjoy the movie. Fun is the key word,” said Dwayne Johnson.

Following the negative reception to the film, Johnson has been very active on Twitter, trying to do damage control. Baywatch was his lowest-opening in years, and also played a big part in the lowest-grossing Memorial Day weekend in nearly 20 years in the US.

Baywatch is directed by Seth Gordon and also stars Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera and Jon Bass.
