‘The Rock’ praises Priyanka Chopra

WEB DESK: Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson has appreciated how Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, the villain of his next movie “Baywatch”, handled the “pressure” and the “kind of action” that the movie has.

Johnson, popularly known as The Rock, shared a video on Instagram and captioned it: “I told Priyanka Chopra at the start of production, ‘Woman, either we are going to get along, or we are going to get it on’, she chose to get it on. And that’s why we love her.”

In the video, which seems to have been shot by the “Furious 7” actor on the sets of “Baywatch”, Johnson said: “There is a big scene where a villain is pointing a gun at me. But it is not just any villain, it’s not just any person, there is only one woman in the world who can handle this kind of pressure, this kind of action.”


The actress then walked up to Johnson in the video flaunting a black shimmer dress and a red pout, and said: “Cause evil never looked so good”.

The “Baywatch” movie is based on the hugely popular 1990s TV series by the same name. The “Gunday” star will be essaying the character of Victoria Leeds in the film.

Besides the two actors, Zac Efron will also be featuring in the film, slated to release on May 19 next year.
