What? Dwayne Johnson is in love with Priyanka Chopra!
The actor found an instant connection with Bollywood's 'desi girl'.In an interview, Johnson said, "I love this woman, it's funny when she came to America... She was over here, signed with our agency, with my agent, we immediately had that connection."
Johnson thinks Priyanka is a great villain as she has made her Hollywood debut with a negative role in "Baywatch", which has been adapted from the 1990s' popular TV series of the same name.He said, "I think in order to play a villain, the greatest of villains have this great quality and capacity and depth, and that's exactly what Priyanka has. So it originally was written for a man... It is way cooler if we flip that over and made it a female."
Johnson is also impressed with Priyanka's technique of work.
"With Priyanka, everything is considered, every little detail is considered," he added.
Directed by Seth Gordon, the film also stars Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and Jon Bass. The flick has released internationally and fared poorly with critics, many described the film as "shallow", "stupid", "misguided", and "wantonly crude".
But it hasn't dampened the spirit of the film's team. They are busy promoting the movie in Berlin and London. "Baywatch" will hit the screens in India on Friday.
