Next on Priyanka's agenda: Be a Baywatch babe!

Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra is in talks for the role of a villain in the upcoming Baywatch movie
12 Jan, 2016

There will be a Baywatch movie, and Priyanka Chopra may star in it.

Such is the latest development in the Bollywood actress' career overseas. According to Hollywood Reporter, Chopra is in talks with Paramount to play the villain in the film adaptation of the 1990s television series about California lifeguards.

Confirmed stars in the film include Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, who play lifeguard leader and young ex-Olympian respectively. The two have to join forces to save the bay in the Baywatch film.

Seth Gordon, who has helmed features like comedy film Horrible Bosses and documentary Freakonomics, will be directing the movie.

Chopra recently picked up the People's Choice Award for her performance in Quantico, her debut American TV series in which she plays the lead role of an FBI recruit suspected of being a terrorist agent.

At present, her talks with Paramount are in its early stages and scheduling conflicts with the film’s shoot and Chopra’s ABC show still need to be worked out.

If Chopra accepts the role, Baywatch would be her Hollywood debut film.

Why should this be of any interest to us (Pakistanis)? Chopra is not Pakistani actress to put this news here. Meanwhile, best of luck to her career!
