Priyanka Chopra is currently busy with the promotions of her Hollywood debut, “baywatch.” She claims that the role of villain was created for a male celebrity.

The actress took it to Twitter and Instagram to share new photos from the film. She can now count herself alongside Jessica Chastain ("Interstellar"), Angelina Jolie ("Salt", "Mr. and Mrs. Smith"), and Sigourney Weaver ("Alien") as one of the most famous Hollywood females.

The 34-year-old star says that the filmmaker was interested in hiring a male for the negative role. Later on, he confirmed Chopra for the character as she was more suitable to be an opponent of Dwayne and Zac.

Speaking about her experience, Priyanka says that Seth Gordon invited her to a Skype meeting. She loved the idea of Dwayne and Zac going up against a female antagonist and confirmed the project in no time.

‘Baywatch’ – the film

“Baywatch” is a highly-anticipated Hollywood film directed and co-produced by Seth Gordon, based on the TV series of the same name. In addition to Priyanka Chopra, Zac Efron, and Dwayne Johnson, the film features Jon Bass, Kelly Rohrbach, Alexandra Daddario, David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, and Ilfenesh Hadera.

The film has been shot in Florida, Savannah, Miami, and Georgia, and will swing into theaters on May 25, 2017. In October 2012, Paramount Pictures announced the film, with Johnson playing the leading character. In July 2015, Seth Gordon was recruited to direct and co-produce the movie.
