As audiences waited in anticipation to catch the first appearance of Priyanka Chopra in her forthcoming film ‘Baywatch’, many may have been left feeling rather disappointed as to how quick the actress is seen and gone. However, the maker of the film have done this to not give so much away, and have revealed that there will be more of Chopra in the follow up trailers.
“Priyanka’s the main villain, she’s the boss who owns the beach. She has got a dynamic character, which is villainous from the word go. And she’s aced it. But the makers don’t want to give it out just right now. The big reveal about Priyanka’s character will happen more in the trailer and the subsequent teasers that will follow. So there’s a lot to come. Priyanka fans need not be upset,” DNA reported a source stating.
Though Chopra has played brilliant negative roles in her Bollywood career, it has been said that this role will be very different to those she’s played in the past. The source went on to say, “Priyanka Chopra has taken the West by storm and her role as the villainous Victoria Leeds has already created a stir with audiences who are looking forward to seeing her in a new avatar. The multi-layered launch campaign will sequentially introduce the key characters of the film in a series of trailers, and the first look will be flagged off by an introduction to the ‘Lifeguard Squad’s’ star lifeguards, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron. With 2 posters and a few behind the scenes videos that have been shared on social media, the feedback and reaction has been phenomenal and the anticipation for the film is at fever pitch. We have a long way to go until May 26th, so get ready.”
By the looks of things, the actress is making a great impression in Hollywood too, as Megan Colligan, President of Worldwide Distribution and Marketing, Paramount Pictures expressed how impressed she is with the actress. “Everyone at Paramount is beyond thrilled to be working with Priyanka Chopra on her big screen Hollywood debut with our global tentpole ‘BAYWATCH’. As her co-star Dwayne Johnson has said, Priyanka is one of the biggest stars in the world and we are excited to have her promote her prominent starring role to audiences in countries across the globe,” she said.
Well if this is anything to go by, it seems audiences will be glued to their screens, in the wait for what’s more to come from the film’s trailers, and to get more of Chopra than a blink and miss shot.
