- Baywatch made 1.5 crore on Friday
- The film currently stands at over Rs 3 crores
- Baywatch clashed with Wonder Woman at the box office
Baywatch released in the US on May 26 while it arrived in India on June 2. In India, Baywatch clashed with another Hollywood film, Wonder Woman, while Bollywood also released Dobaara and Dear Maya on the same day.
In Baywatch, Priyanka Chopra plays the prime antagonist Victoria Leeds as opposed to Dwayne The Rock Johnson, who headlined the lifeguard squad. About Victoria Leeds, Priyanka Chopra had earlier revealed: "I play the bombshell of a villain." Here's what Raja Sen has to say in his review for NDTV: "The villain of the piece is Priyanka Chopra, vamping it up and having fun swearing like a sailor. Playing an attractive drug-dealer, she cannily uses this film to deliver a barely-disguised showreel to studios in need of a baddie. "I'm not a Bond villain," she even says, perhaps prophetically, in as many words, 'Yet'."
The lifeguard squad of The Rock is also joined by Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and Ilfnesh Hadera. The beachside movie also has cameos by Baywatch originals Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff.
