As excited as we are about our desi girl Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood debut, we have more pressing issues at hand. Is The Rock be coming to India or not? Well, Dwayne Johnson says that he would love to come. In a video message, which was played at Priyanka’s recent press conference for the upcoming film Baywatch, the actor also expressed his adoration towards his Indian co-star.
Dwayne stated, “I am so sorry I couldn’t be there with you. Priyanka and I had talked about this for months. Coming to India would’ve been my first time. I cannot wait to come. I wish I could’ve joined you this time.”
The 44-year-old actor couldn’t stop praising his co-star. “I’ve been told this video is going to play in a very big press conference, based around someone who is very important and special to me. Someone who is incredibly talented… Priyanka Chopra. You’re the best, I love you. I am sure I am making you blush,” he said.
Dwayne’s love for Priyanka Chopra is quite evident. Recently, he even shared an Instagram post of the latest Baywatch poster saying that the movie needed a “super villain” and Priyanka is pretty perfect.
I rarely use the word, “Perfect” (except when describing my kissing when I drink tequila on weekends), but every superhero movie, needs a SUPER villain and @priyankachopra is PERFECT as our lead baddie in #BAYWATCH. Bad ass, intelligent, sexy, sophisticated, charming, evil and great tequila drinker. #Perfect #BAYWATCH MAY 25th
Dwayne also addressed his Indian fans, acknowledging their love and support since his WWE days. “Over the years, whether it was my WWE or movie career, you have shown such incredible love and support to me,” he said. “Thank you so much. I look forward to one day coming to your great country and saying hello and sharing my gratitude in person.”
Starring Priyanka Chopra as Victoria Leeds, Dwayne Johnson as Mitch Buchannon, Zac Efron as Matt Brody, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass and Ilfenesh Hadera, Baywatch is all set to hit the theatres on May 25.
