Chopra later laughed at the reaction saying she loved all the memes that came out as a result of wearing the gown.
TV appearances galore
During the promotions for ‘Baywatch’, there wasn’t a channel that didn’t have Chopra gracing them with her presence. Chopra showed off her chatty girl talk side, speaking about feminism, girls doing it for themselves and even called out Wendy Williams when she called Meghan Markle, just Prince Harry’s girlfriend. Chopra also alluded to the fact that she would even be up for becoming the next female James Bond.
Landing two more Hollywood movies
It is safe to say that Chopra has made her mark with over 50 films in Bollywood and she has made an impression on Hollywood with her role in ‘Baywatch’.

On the back of this, Chopra has landed herself two Hollywood films – ‘A Kid Like Jake’ due to release in 2018 and ‘Isn’t It Romantic’ due to release in 2019.
Her film production house
Chopra is intent on championing good cinema and in particular, regional movies that don’t usually get the exposure on a large scale. In partnership with her mother Madhu Chopra, Chopra’s production house Purple Pebble Pictures announced at the 70th Cannes Film Festival with a first look at their new Sikkimese film ‘Pahuna’ due to release in October 2017.
Her work with the UNICEF and other charities
