Priyanka Chopra the star of the "Quantico" series is a Bollywood actress who has the distinction of acting in a stellar role in the upcoming film "Baywatch." In the long decades of Bollywood, Priyanka is the first to strike it out in Hollywood. The success of "Quantico" had prompted Priyanka to be cast in "Baywatch." The film also stars Dwayne Johnson. The trailer of the movie has been released and there is no doubt that Priyanka is a wonderful candidate to emulate Pamela Anderson, who made a big name as an iconic star with a superb body in the earlier adaptation. The trailer shows some lovely scenes of Priyanka in a bikini. Many will find her steamy scenes with Dwayne Johnson a real treat.

'Baywatch' release

"Baywatch" commenced shooting in February this year, and the shooting will wrap up by next year. The film is slated for release in May 2017. Hardly any Mumbai actress has struck an important role in Hollywood and Priyanka is the first. Now Deepika Padukone is following her and she will be seen in the movie "Return of Xander Cage." The two actors are competitors in Bollywood and it will be interesting to see how they fair in Hollywood.

One is reminded that in the late fifties of the last century the Bollywood beauty Madhubala (who was compared to Marilyn Monroe in India) was to be cast in a film made in Hollywood, but the deal fell through as her father opposed her acting in a Hollywood film.

Though the series has lost some steam and shifted from the primetime, the mark of Priyanka is indelible. Three teasers have been released by the producers of the film "Baywatch," and Priyanka has top billing just after Dwayne Johnson. She will be seen in a slightly negative role as a villain, but that will probably add to her exotic charm.

Either way, this is a great step forward in her career, and perhaps the first of many major roles to come.
