Talking to the media at a promotional event, Chopra also made sure that her fans do not miss her Baywatch co-star Dwayne Johnson there. It was earlier reported how Chopra had expressed her doubts about the star cast of Baywatch including Johnson and Zac Efron coming to India to promote the film. However, she made sure that she connected the fans in attendance with Johnson through a recorded message.

Johnson praised Chopra and apologised to his fans for not showing up in person. He also promised to make his first tip to India soon.  Referring to Chopra's negative role in the film, Johson said, "She is so good at being bad."

Pinkvilla reports that Chopra also added that one of the two reasons why she chose to take up Baywatch was because she was offered the villain's role which was originally written as a male character. "I thought of doing something different in my first Hollywood film. But it just felt like a Bollywood film in a different language."

She also attributed her decision of opting for Baywatch to the original television series that had a global reach and that she personally was a fan of. But all the film offers, including that of Baywatch, came to her only because of her popularity owing to her television show Quantico.

While she kept mum on doing Kalpana Chawla's biopic, she did confirm that she has locked three Hindi films and will start working in them soon.

Baywatch is slated to release in India on 2 June.
