Baywatch is famous for lifeguards running in a red swimsuit, but sadly we won’t see Priyanka doing it. “Since I am not one of the lifeguards I won’t be wearing the red swimsuit. Whether I wear one or not is something you will have to wait and watch,” she revealed.
Mary Kom actress was last seen in the Bollywood film Jai Gangaajal as a brave cop. It was speculated that she has distanced from B-town due to her packed schedule in Hollywood. to which Priyanka dismissed it by saying, “Hindi films are in my blood and my soul, I can never be distanced from them.”
There were reports of Priyanka being offered the role of Amrita Pritam in the Sahir biopic, which is being produced by her Bajirao Mastanidirector Sanjay Leela Bhansali and even in his next directorial.
Priyanka stated, “If he comes to me with something there’s no question of saying no. Over the last one year I have been filming Bajirao Mastani, Gangaajal and now Baywatch along with Quantico. It’s been difficult. I have been flying down to India for a day and back. After all the hard work and long hours I need a family vacation.
“I will be flying back next month and will be home for a month-and-a-half before I return n July for the second season of Quantico. That’s when I will decide what films to take on. One thing, however, is clear, after Quantico I won’t be doing another TV show.”
