Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan: Same Same But Different…
The new poster of Priyanka Chopra’s debut live-action Hollywood venture Baywatch is out and it puts her in the forefront. The poster has Priyanka Chopra with sunglasses on and an evil smirk. The reflection of Avengers of the beach as Dwayne Johnson likes to call his team of lifeguards is there on her sunglasses. While the poster looks vibrant, I couldn’t help but notice the uncanny resemblance to a Shah Rukh Khan blockbuster of 90s. I am talking about Abbas-Mustan’s Baazigar. Some of the posters of Baazigar had Shah Rukh Khan in, what seemed to be like, a uniform wearing sunglasses with Shilpa Shetty and Kajol’s reflection on it. The reason for this similarity may be the fact that Shah Rukh Khan played a negative character in Baazigar and Priyanka Chopra too is playing a baddie character in Baywatch. The poster also has a similarity with Kate Hudson’s Almost Famous.
Check out the posters below:
The movie is up for a May 25 release, everyone wants to know will the team come to India? Talking about it Priyanka Chopra said it seems “very difficult”.Deepika Padukone brought along Vin Diesel to promote xXx: Return of the Xander Cage in India earlier this year. So, one wonders if there is a chance that the Baywatch team visits the country too. “I don’t know yet,” Priyanka told IANS over the phone from New York. “It seems very difficult. I don’t think we will be doing much. We will be only doing one or two countries when it comes to travelling for Baywatch, but I don’t know yet what the marketing plan by Paramount Pictures is.
“But while I am in town, I will definitely do as much as I can. I don’t know about the rest of the team,” she added. The upcoming American action-comedy film, featuring Priyanka as the antagonist Victoria Leeds, is based on the hugely popular television series of the same name. Directed by Seth Gordon, it features actors like Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
