Los Angeles: Actor Priyanka Chopra can't wait to be back in India only to return to the US again to set out on promotional trips for her Hollywood debut Baywatch. Will the team come to India? She says it seems 'very difficult'.

Actor 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 said over 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.

After a short trip of 10 days to India soon, Priyanka will have to rush back to fulfill her commitments to the project. "I've to come back (to the US) again because I'll be travelling for 'Baywatch'," she said.

The actor, whose Marathi film production Ventilator has recently won three National Film Awards, is looking forward to meet her friends and family members during her visit to India. "I am very excited. It's been a long run for Quantico 2, and I am very tired. I am just waiting to come home," added Priyanka.

According to a source close to the actor, she will also be meeting a few filmmakers and deciding upon some Indian projects while she is here, apart from some work on her brand endorsements.
