New Delhi: Baywatch co-stars Priyanka Chopra and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson had a reunion (of sorts) on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday evening. Priyanka, dressed in a silver Ralph & Russo creation, was photographed chatting and laughing with Dwayne, who wore a blue velvet jacket to the award show. And now, days after the event, The Rock shared their picture from the red carpet and narrated the backstory of the shot - apparently, Priyanka told The Rock that "wearing blue velvet makes my head look even larger than it actually is." However, on Twitter Priyanka said: "Haha as if!! @TheRock looked extremely dapper in blue Velvet! (sic)"
