Actress Priyanka Chopra says she will be seen as a “bombshell” of a villain in her upcoming Hollywood film debut Baywatch. The actress, in a recent online chat organised by Twitter New York, shared about her character in the film, which also stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron.
Priyanka, 34, plays the main antagonist in the movie, set for May, 2017 release.
“It’s Dwayne and Zac together. Just picture them together. Isn’t that just funny looking at them together? The film is just really funny. That in itself is fun, now imagine that in slow motion. It’s a great great movie. It doesn’t take itself seriously. It’s a comedy and I play the bombshell of a villain in the movie,” the Quantico star said.
Priyanka is confident the movie will be a blockbuster.
“I’m very excited about the movie because I was a big fan of the show. I think ‘Baywatch’ as a show is much more popular around the world.
“I mean, people just loved the show all over the world and this movie according to me will be a big summer blockbuster next year because it’s so funny,” she said.
Baywatch is the big screen remake of the hugely popular ’90s action drama series of the same name.
Priyanka Chopra says her favourite part about her profession is that it gives her the liberty to play myriad characters.
Priyanka, who was at the Twitter headquarters in San Francisco on Tuesday, did a video chat with her fans who asked her several questions.
When a user asked her about her favourite thing of being an actress, she replied in a video: “My most favourite thing of being an actress is being able to play so many different characters and the fact that I can be anybody. Scary huh?”
Another user asked what’s the one thing she always needs on the sets.
She said: “One thing I always need on set is my phone, otherwise how will I tweet you guys… That’s very essential.”
