A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature
The success of Quantico has made Priyanka Chopra an international sensation. PeeCee's journey has been nothing short of a fairy-tale affair. It all started in a small town called Bareilly. Until PeeCee made it big Bareilly was most famous for the Bollywood song "Jhumka Gira Re" from the movie Saaya (1966). But it all changed after Priyanka Chopra got crowned as Miss World in the year 2000. It didn't take PeeCee very long to establish herself in Bollywood. Her success story is well documented. During her stellar career in Bollywood she has won almost every acting accolade that's there to be won. But Priyanka's thirst global fame has been unquenchable. She took her acting career to a new high when she got signed for the American television series Quantico in 2015. Since then Priyanka has become a popular face in the US with her headlining the Golden Globes as well as the Oscars.
But, like always, Quantico was just the stepping stone for Priyanka. For the series, PeeCee also won the People's Choice Award for 'Favorite Actress in a New TV Series'. Quantico's success actually paved the way to PeeCee's Bollywood entry. And now she is making her Hollywood debut with the highly anticipated film Baywatch. Directed by Seth Gordon, Baywatch stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as lifeguards who patrol a beach in California along with a bunch of female lifeguards. While Dwayne Johnson is once again cast as the tough guy, the 29 year old Zack Efron appears to be the movie's surprise package. But the biggest attraction of Baywatch by far is Priyanka Chopra.
A Paramount Pictures movie, Baywatch's distribution in India would be taken care of by Viacom18 Motion Pictures. We all are aware of the popularity of the Baywatch television series which ran in its original format from 1989 to 1999. From 1999 to 2001, a new format of the show was introduced called Baywatch Hawaii. Paramount Pictures have very high expectations from Baywatch. If the movie does well at the the box-office one can expect Paramount to transform it into a full-fledged movie franchise.
The movie is set to release on 27th May, 2017. Baywatch was earlier scheduled to release on May 19th, 2017 but the release was postponed by one week so as to avoid clash with Alien: Covenant.
