Priyanka Chopra talks playing the villain in new 'Baywatch' movie



The film is directed by Seth Gordon and also stars Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera and Jon Bass, with cameos by original TV show actors Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff. She has also made several appearances on foreign red carpet like the Golden Globes, Oscars and the Emmys. We all expected that we would be seeing Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in India when Priyanka Chopra had come here last month for about a week. We had a secret weapon in Priyanka Chopra.

Playing the couture loving, badass, Victoria Leeds, who enjoys the high life and her high heels, Johnson knew he found the ideal villain in Priyanka Chopra.

First things first: "Baywatch" is a likable film in and of itself.

The beauty didn't bring up the idea during the chat, but now she's had more time to think about it, she really believes she could be onto something. "She is Victoria in real life too, but minus the evilness", says Dwayne. "Chopra's engaging, interesting and speaks with a distinctive cadence", said IGN. In fact, at one point in the film, the audience I saw the film with cheered at a line of hers against a protagonist, which has never happened before in a film I've seen.

S MUSCLE MAN The Rock insists Baywatch has gotten dirtier

Baywatch, directed by Seth Gordon, releases this week in U.S. and on June 2 in India. "I'm just glad destiny pushed me in that way", she says.

The only "good" review we could find among the long queue of rotten tomatoes is by Matt Goldberg from 'Collider'. Most critics seem disgruntled with the way Priyanka Chopra has been projected in the film, given that she is making waves in Hollywood with her acting prowess.

We can't wait to watch the actress on the big-screen now!

When Victoria announces, "I'm not a James Bond villain - yet!" is that Chopra's shout-out to board the 007 series?
