Parineeti Chopra is super excited about Priyanka Chopra being a part of the Dwayne Johnson-starrer, Baywatch. “To see that my didi (Priyanka) is a part of such a big brand like Baywatch is the proudest thing,” said Parineeti while speaking at the launch of a phone. Confessing her love for the Baywatch, Parineeti said, “We all have grown up watching Baywatch. We used to see it every week. And I loved the trailer that was recently released.”
Parineeti Chopra also came out in strong support of cousin sister Priyanka Chopra’s blink-and-miss appearance in Baywatch’s trailer. Defending Peecee, Parineeti said, “Trailer is cut according to the story. We can’t involve ourselves in that. But Priyanka will be fantastic in the film. I have seen some stills and she is looking amazing and she will be amazing in the film too.”

Priyanka’s one-second appearance in the trailer was discussed by Indian movie aficionados on social networking sites, prompting Johnson himself to tweet that there is more that fans can expect from Priyanka.
Meanwhile, Parineeti looked her cheerful best at the phone launch. Playing a rapid fire round where Parineeti had to name a Bollywood star that matched the phone’s features in real life saw the actress picking up Deepika Padukone as the sleekiest looking actress. When the emcee quizzed the Kill Dil actress to name an actor who matched the mobile phone’s security features, Parineeti answered, “Salman. I feel safe with him. He is quite the man.”
The actress also commented on demonetisation, saying that she has always been doing cashless transactions and has not faced any problem ever since Rs 500 and 1000 notes were abolished by the Indian government last month.
