New Delhi: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and his lifeguard gang - comprising Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and others - are working hard to restore 'Baywatch' to its former glory. They are trying their best to make things work and Dwayne, who plays no-nonsense leader Mitch Buchannon, has finally accepted (or so it seems) former Olympian Matt Brody, who has his own way of doing things. Enter, Priyanka Chopra. The Bollywood star, who plays antagonist Victoria Leeds, is brewing trouble for the gang as highlighted by Mitch, who is convinced that things fell apart only after Victoria took over the company. This pretty much sums up the glimpse offered in the new trailer of upcoming film Baywatch.
- Priyanka plays Victoria Leeds, who makes things difficult for The Rock
- The new trailer released a day after Priyanka's Golden Globes appearance
- The Seth Gordon-directed Baywatch releases in May
Priyanka Chopra, 34, barely had a second on screen in the first trailer which released in December. This time, we see a bit more of her but in full form. The three scenes featuring Priyanka state Victoria's purpose in the film. She looks every bit the "bombshell of a villain" as she once promised. The actress' mother Madhu Chopra earlier told news agency IANS that keeping Priyanka's role under wraps is part of the promotional strategy.
