While the first trailer of Baywatch introduces the lifeguard squad, is the first of many upcoming teasers to be released by the studio introducing audiences to the world of Baywatch and the many layers of the plot, all leading up to the official trailer launch in early 2017.

Making bad look so good, Priyanka essays the role of Baywatch’s anti-hero in the film, Victoria Leeds. Priyanka’s last award winning performance as a villain was in 7 KHOON MAAF, for which she earned the Filmfare Award for Best Actress – Critics. Priyanka also won the Filmfare Award for Best Actor in a Villainess role, and the Screen Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role for her portrayal as the antagonist in the 2004 film, Aitraaz.

Priyanka Chopra has already taken the West by storm and her role as the villaness, Victoria Leeds has already created a stir with audiences who are looking forward to seeing her in a new avatar.

The multi-layered launch campaign will sequentially introduce the key characters of the film in a series of trailers, and the first look will be flagged off by an introduction to the ‘Lifeguard Squad’s’ star lifeguards, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and ZacEfron. With 2 posters and a few behind the scenes videos that have been shared on social media, the feedback and reaction has been phenomenal and the anticipation for the film is at fever pitch. We have a long way to go until May 26th, so get ready.
