Baywatch sensation, David Hasselhoff, who also had a cameo in the film, expressed his desire to work in Bollywood to Priyanka Chopra. Hasselhoff, famously known as The Hoff, played the main lead Mitch Buchannon in the renowned TV series Baywatch. He produced Baywatch from the 1990s until 2001 when the series ended with Baywatch Hawaii. He also set a Guinness World Record as the most watched man on TV.
A few days back, while chatting with fans during a live AOL Build interview, Priyanka revealed about Hasselhoff’s desire, “I wasn’t on set the day David filmed his cameo so he called me and said he was sad about it because he was really looking forward to meeting me. He told me he loves Indian movies and he would love to be a part of one. My brain immediately started to plan… imagine the Hoff in an Indian movie. I’d watch it!”

Not just this, Priyanka also explained her apprehensions for essaying a negative character of Victoria Leeds in Baywatch, “I felt like this was my first English language film– I’m an Indian girl, would I be able to translate that? Is the world ready for a girl who looks like this to be a mainstream villain in a mainstream global movie?”
Furthermore, Priyanka asserted, “I used to get a little worried about that, but I’ve seen so much love and acceptance from at least both parts that I’ve played [Baywatch and Quantico] and they’ve both been very mainstream, so it’s been a very conscious decision on my end to play parts which break stereotypes of what someone like me should play.”
Priyanka is currently in Mumbai to finalize her upcoming Bollywood projects and brand endorsements. This morning, we told you that Priyanka might star in a film to be directed by Pink director, Anirudhha Roy Chowdhury. The film is set to be based on a female-centric issue just like Pink. Priyanka has already signed Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gustakhiyan.
