The world premiere of Seth Gordon's upcoming action comedy Baywatch was held on 14 May in what other place than Miami, Florida. It is not only where the film, and the original television series on which it is based, is set but also the hometown of the lead star of the film - Dwayne Johnson.

Congratulations! Thank you to a wonderful cast. #may25th #BeBaywatch @baywatchmovie #12daystogo

Johnson, along with the other cast members including Zac Effron, Priyanka Chopra and Alexandra Daddario were visibly excited at the premiere. Chopra, who will make her Hollywood debut with this film, looked forward to her fans watching her in the negative role of Victoria Leeds, years after performing dark roles in Vishal Bhardwaj's 2011 black comedy Saat Khoon Maaf and Abbas-Mustan's 2004 romantic thriller Aitraaz.

In an interview to film critic Rajeev Masand on the red carpet of the premiere, Chopra said that she is glad that she played a villain, which is in complete contrast to her role of a nationalistic Alex Parish in her debut American television series Quantico.

She also revealed that she was overwhelmed by the faith shown in her by the director. "I just talked to him once on Skype. And he said, 'Ok then it's final. You're doing the film. I will do everything to make sure that happens.' And I was onboard!"

Chopra shared multiple videos and stills from the premiere, including a backstage video in which her Baywatch co-stars are celebrating the occasion minutes before coming out on the stage. She also posed with David Hasselhoff, the lead star of the original Baywatch series, on the red carpet.
