Johnson on Priyanka's 'Baywatch' role: It's all in the big picture plan


The first official trailer of Priyanka Chopra’s debut Hollywood film ‘Baywatch’ came out on Thursday, but fans of the actress were disappointed as she had a blink-and-miss appearance in the Dwayne Johnson starrer.

Priyanka, who plays the antagonist Victoria Leeds in the flick, is seen walking down a hallway with a champagne flute in her hand in a one-second scene in the two-minute-long trailer.

Fans of the actress took to Twitter to express their disappointment and it did reach the ears in Hollywood, as both Priyanka and leading man Dwayne immediately responded by reassuring upset fans on the social platform.

The ‘Quantico’ actress tried to cheer up her fans by tweeting, “All good things come to those who wait… in this case… it’s all bad! Patience... #VictoriaLeeds #comingsoon!” She also trended the hashtag #Wait4VictoriaLeeds.

Dwayne also tweeted announcing that ‘the Boss’ was coming. He wrote, “All our fans & press friends in INDIA, @priyankachopra SLAYS our #Baywatch! Trust my plan.. The #Boss is comin'..”

“I luv India back! (U already know I luv U;). It's aaaallll in the big picture plan. #Wait4VictoriaLeeds #Boss #Baywatch MEMORIAL DAY… She's perfect and brings such a force. @priyankachopra #Boss #Baywatch,” the wrestler turned-actor tweeted again.

Apparently, the trailer released on Thursday was a the first of some more upcoming teasers, all of which will lead up to the official trailer launch early next year.

A report in DNA quoted a source as saying, "Priyanka's the main villain, she's the boss who owns the beach. She has got a dynamic character, which is villainous from the word go. But the makers don't want to give it out just right now. The big reveal about Priyanka's character will happen more in the trailer and the subsequence teasers that will follow. So there's a lot to come.”

Priyanka fans need not be upset. ‘Baywatch’ releases on May 26, 2017.
