Just when we thought Priyanka Chopra was ruling the world, the first trailer of her Hollywood debut, Baywatch, took us by surprise. Priyanka’s Victoria Leeds appeared only for a second in the trailer but she owned even that moment. The Quantico actress had mentioned earlier in an interview that she will be playing a billionaire badass in Baywatch and one would have expected a little more screen time for her. Especially when she made such an impression in the one moment allotted to her.
The trailer is very exciting for fans of Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson who get to . Baywatch comes from director Seth Gordon who previously treated us to comedy films like Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief and Freakonomics. The film is based on ’90s television series of the same name which had David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson doing the beach rescue act. Both the actors have cameos in the movie.
Much like the television series, the film treats its audiences with a lot of women running slo-mo around the beach, dancing in bikinis and men with six pack abs all ready to rescue them. The action sequences include moments when Zac Efron had to strip off his shirt to dive into the ocean from his jet ski. At another point, he’s driving around on a motorcycle wearing a green T-shirt before he jumps off it and into the water. Dwayne Johnson, of course, is the hero of the hour, who is the heart and soul of the film and the beach, ready to rescue at a moment’s notice.

Zac Efron, however, is the chilled out diver who loves to party. Who is Priyanka Chopra? Guess we will only know if they release a special trailer for India or show us more in subsequent glimpses. Priyanka and The Rock have both teased about a “plan” regarding revealing more of Victoria Leeds. This is what Priyanka Chopra had to say on the blink-and-miss-it appearance.

Dwayne, meanwhile, said in a tweet, “All our fans & press friends in INDIA, @priyankachopra🔥SLAYS our #Baywatch! Trust my plan.. The #Boss💋 is comin’..”
Baywatch will release alongside Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales and Life, starring Rebecca Ferguson and Jake Gyllenhaal.
