Priyanka Chopra is thoroughly enjoying the opportunities Baywatch
brings her. The 34-year-old actress, who features as antagonist in Baywatch
, promoted the film in Berlin with her co-stars Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Zac Efron and met David Hasselhoff, the original Mitch Buchannon (the protagonist of Nineties show Baywatch
). Priyanka's brother Siddharth and mother Madhu Chopra also attended the Baywatch
promotional event which was followed by a special screening. Priyanka looked absolutely stunning in a Marc Jacobs dress with lace and sequin detail. Her straight hair fell perfectly on her shoulders. Here are pictures from Baywatch
's Berlin screening and glimpses from backstage. Take a look:

Meanwhile, Priyanka's film released in USA last week and has been panned by critics for its "lazy gross-out humor." Priyanka, who plays antagonist Victoria Leeds, doesn't have many dialogues like the other women characters, which has been highlighted as a problem by Washington Post's Stephanie Merry. "It's no shock that the women in Baywatch don't have much to do beyond look good. Even Chopra, as the villain, has minimal dialogue, although the camera spends plenty of time giving her elevator eyes while she dons form-fitting, cleavage-baring dresses," she wrote.
Made in a budget of $60 million, Baywatch
's box office numbers do not look good either. In the first four days, Baywatch
performed "far below early estimates," according to Variety magazine. Baywatch
released alongside Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
, directed by Seth Gordon, also stars Alexandra Daddario as Summer Quinn and Kelly Rohrbach as CJ Parker.
