Paramount Pictures has pushed the release date of their upcoming action comedy, Baywatch. And we will have to wait more to watch our Desi Girl, Priyanka Chopra making her Hollywood debut. The film, which was scheduled to release on May 19 th , will now hit the theatres alongside Johnny Depp’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and Rebecca Ferguson and Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Life” on the start of the Memorial Day holiday weekend, on May 26 th . The Memorial Day Weekend will now have two ‘Watery Adventures’; Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Baywatch’ and Johnny Depp’s ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. This weekend is now overcrowded with three big releases, all set to give each other tough competition.
Baywatch has generated a lot of excitement amongst the Indian fans this year, with the reason being Priyanka Chopra. She will be seen as the leading lady of the film. After winning hearts in the West with her American TV series Quantico, Priyanka Chopra is all set to make her fans swoon with Baywatch. A few months ago, when Baywatch had dropped a July 4-themed poster where the entire cast was covered in stars and stripes, Priyanka Chopra stood out in a white dress. There is no doubt this girl is taking America by storm with her spectacular performance in Quantico, she is now all set to surprise, or rather shock everyone with her villainous avatar in Baywatch. She will be seen in an out-and-out baddie role and we got a glimpse of it when the makers released a solo Halloween poster of the film featuring just her. She was looking super hot in black and her sex appeal and oomph would have definitely left much greens with envy.
Playing a villain in a debut film is not everyone’s cup of tea, but Priyanka loves to traverse the path less traveled! For those who don’t know, PeeCee played a character with negative shades right at the beginning of her career in the film Aitraaz which also featured Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor. Considering how fantastic she was as a shrewd, ambitious, manipulative woman in ‘Aitraaz’, we are sure enough that she will rock in Baywatch!
Though the wait has gone longer by a week, that doesn’t let the excitement dampen amongst PeeCee fans!
