But now with the release hardly a month away, we see her making a splash in the new trailer of the movie and Boy! She is killing it. Take a look at the new poster first.

For those of you not in the loop, Baywatch is an American action comedy film based on a television series of the same name. This series was about a team of attractive lifeguards who patrol a crowded recreational beach. Now, this particular movie shows lifeguard Mitch (Dwayne Johnson) and a flamboyant new recruit (Zac Efron), who are a mismatch and at loggerheads forever. But both of them have to put their differences aside and work together to stop a criminal mastermind’s drug trafficking operation, that threatens the future of the bay. You wonder where is Priyanka Chopra amidst all this? Well, she plays the criminal mastermind disguised as a club owner, who is sassy and sultry all at once. See it to believe it. Trust PC to choose to play an antagonist in her Hollywood film debut.
Dwayne Johnson shared the new trailer for Baywatch on his twitter account, calling his team the “Avengers of the Beach” and sending a warning across to ‘Evil’ Priyanka Chopra.

And to top it all, a hindi trailer was also released and it is actually quite funny to see these characters mouth desi lines. Don’t miss the ‘Chal na Katrina’ reference.
