New Delhi, June 2: Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson revealed his Love at first sight and that is none other than the Indian ‘desi girl’ Priyanka Chopra.
The hunk actor found an instant connection with Baywatch actress.
“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 said in an interview for “Now Showing”.
The show will telecast on Friday on CNN-News18, read a statement from the channel. Johnson expressed that “We got on the phone, we immediately vibed, we share the same DNA, the same ambition… Not only did I fall in love with her, we had this crazy idea that she would be an amazing villain on ‘Baywatch’.”
Priyanka entered in Hollywood with a negative role in “Baywatch”, which has been adapted from the 1990s’ popular TV series of the same name.
Johnson admires her acting skills and says the lady is a great villain.
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.”
It seems like Johnson is among the die heart fans of Priyanka’s technique of work. He said, “With Priyanka, everything is considered, every little detail is considered.”
Directed by Seth Gordon, the film also features Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and Jon Bass. The film 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.
