Baywatch had its European premier at Berlin’s Sony Center, with a press conference headlined by Priyanka Chopra, Dwayne Johnson, Zac Effron and a few other members of the team.
Some speculated that this special premier is a result of box office disappointment that the movie faced in the USA. Regardless of the reason, press and fans were over the moon to have their favourite Hollywood and Bollywood stars in their city.
Before, during and after, the cast of Baywatch managed to squeeze in a fair share of fun and giggle (if pictures are to be believed, that is).
What did Priyanka wear to the press conference?
A pretty white Marc Jacob dress, with stilettos and understated hair and makeup. It was a rather warm day in Berlin, and the breezy dress was on point (for the occasion and weather, both).
Commenting on her role, PeeCee said to Bollywood Life, “it wasn’t normal (villain). I wanted her to be feminine. I wanted her to be scary, not because she screams and yells. Like a graceful one, she doesn’t have to get her nails dirty; she has heels for that.”
The movie is about 116 minutes long, and was produced for a whooping US$ 70 million. The initial plan was to announce the release at a beach party but was changed after the tragic event in Manchester.
The original Baywatch star, David Hasselhoff, believes that the film is a must watch as it is made of “heart, humour, action and fun”. His only regret – he didn’t get to put on a red swimwear!
