She has always been unconventional but making her Hollywood debut as an antagonist is probably one of Priyanka Chopra’s bravest steps. The actress plays a grey character in her forthcoming film Baywatch and has Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as her co-stars. While she has given glimpses of the film by sharing pictures from the sets of the same, the actress has now decided to speak more about her character.
Readers may be aware that Priyanka Chopra plays the main antagonist Victoria Leeds in Baywatch. Giving an insight to her character, the former beauty queen mentioned that Victoria is a woman in a man’s world for whom it is not about drugs or money but power. She’s self-made, head strong and intelligent.
Let us also remind you that initially the character written for Priyanka was supposed to be a male character. However director Seth Gordon decided to make the change after he met the ‘Quantico’ star. Talking about the moment, the filmmaker revealed that he loved the idea of Dwayne Johnson going against a female antagonist. He further added that it is not about physical strength or courage, but much beyond outsmarting and out-winning the opponent.
Besides the trio, Baywatch also stars Kelly Rohrbach, IlfeneshHadera, and Rob Huebel among others and is slated to release on June 2.
