New ‘Baywatch’ NSFW Trailer Shows Off Priyanka Chopra’s Villain

Priyanka Chopra

Born in India, Priyanka Chopra (above) won the Miss World 2000 pageant as a teenager. She soon became an actress, making her debut in 2003 and becaming very popular as a leading lady in dozens of movies over the years.

In 2015, she landed the lead role in Quantico, a dramatic action series that broke out big and became a hit. She has continued to star in popular Indian movies like the historical epic Bajirao Mastani and the social drama Jai Gangaajal. She has also started to produce a variety of movies in India.

Last year she was cast in the new version of Baywatch, as announced by Dwayne Johnson.

Chopra plays a club owner with possible criminal connections named Victoria Leeds. She has largely been absent from much of the marketing material, which is not entirely surprising since she is, after all, playing a villain. A new trailer, however, puts her front and center.

Make no mistake, Johnson and Zac Efron are the stars, but it’s notable that Chopra is showcased in the trailer, which was made for the British market. In the U.S., Chopra is well-known to fans of Indian movies and her TV series, but less so among the general moviegoing public. Outside the U.S., though, it’s a far different story, so it’s no wonder that the villain gets so much play in the new trailer.

We’ll have to wait to find out how big a role Chopra plays in the big-screen version of the beloved television show. Baywatch, which also stars Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and Ilfenesh Hadera, opens in theaters on May 25.
