Baywatch release new clips starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron & Kelly Rohrbach

The weirdest critique that I've seen of the Baywatch movie so far came from AV Club, who complained that it "is even emptier than its source material".

"I enjoy fight scenes, I always do my own stunts".

After his new trainees are in place, Mitch has a hunch that there's some fishy business going on with bay businesswoman Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra), and aside from one memorable scene in the morgue, the movie veers downhill as the crew's investigation takes center stage.

The 34-year-old actress walked Vogue around her home where she sang various songs, attempted a Boston accent and discussed one of the many misconceptions Americans have about Indians.

Earlier we had reported that Priyanka Chopra will be organizing a special screening of Baywatch with her mother Madhu Chopra for her Bollywood friends in the city. Mitch and his fellow lifeguards (Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass, and Ilfenesh Hadera) do more than keep an eye out for those struggling in the waters, though, they guard the beach as well. @kevinmichaelericson decides to upstage me.#RunKevinRun, ' she began. "She wears heels on the beach - who does that? - and a huge diamond on her pinky".

The only thing worse than the plot in Baywatch is the comedy or the lack of depending how low you set the bar.

She said: "I was like, 'I'm so sorry about this". She added that, after having played a positive character of Alex Parrish in Quantico, she was extremely excited about her role in Baywatch, as her role in the film was a total contradiction of her role in Quantico. "Alex's life is totally different from Victoria's, and that was the joy to me", she said. The recent reviews of the Baywatch's remake are mostly negative despite the star-studded cast.

"Yeah", she said laughing, "it could be".

Well, these stunning pictures of Priyanka Chopra are surely going to give a tough time to the fashion police, as she has nailed each look with her sass and that flawless smile.

"So I put the suit on, I think it's great".

So tapping The Rock for a big screen reboot of Baywatch - the muscle-bound beach soap that premiered right at the end of the 1980s, ran for 11 seasons and featured David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson and an assortment of jiggly babes and brawny dudes - might seem like a slam dunk.

Even before her title, Chopra was expanding her horizons. The Hoff in a Bollywood movie? Efron, on the other hand, is as game as ever to play douchey and look ridiculous doing it, but maybe he shouldn't be so game anymore.
