Priyanka Chopra Is a ‘Baywatch’ Beauty on Set in Florida with The Rock
Chopra, who actually plays the movie’s villain, was snapped on the movie reboot’s set yesterday (March 1) in Boca Raton, Florida, just days after she made her Oscars debut.
Sporting a white top and skirt and a pair of colorful heels, Chopra looks effortlessly beautiful, and this is also the first time we’ve seen the Quantico actress on the movie set.
While at the Oscars, she told EW, “I wanted to play a bad guy for a really long time and I’m doing that in Baywatch, so I’m excited.”
Also spotted was her Baywatch co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who plays Mitch Buchannon (played by David Hasselhoff in the original TV series) alongside Zac Efron’s Matt Brody (originally played by David Charvet). The Rock, who’s also producing the movie, announced that Chopra would be joining the cast two weeks ago on Instagram.
She’s one of the biggest stars in the world. Insanely talented, relentlessly smokin’ and extremely dangerous – perfect for #BAYWATCH. Welcome @PriyankaChopra to our bad ass and incredibly dysfunctional family. Cue RATED R slo-mo running on the beach. We start shooting next week. World.. #WelcomeToBaywatch 🇺🇸🌊🇮🇳👊🏾
Seeing these set photos is making us super excited for the film, which is slated for a May 19, 2017 release.
While on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday (Feb. 29), Chopra took a shot of “special water” with Jimmy Kimmel Live!‘s Guillermo Rodriguez. “What kind? Tequila?” Chopra asked. “Yeah, that’s the kind of water I need! Some liquid courage,” she joked.
Watch her cheers and her hilarious reaction (starting at 1:56 min) in the video below:
