Priyanka Chopra is a well known Indian actress.

Bollywood-cum-Hollywood babe Priyanka Chopra is making headlines as the new trailer for the upcoming "Baywatch" film shows her off as a sizzling baddie. Starring alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, the "Quantico" star will be playing Victoria Leeds, the gorgeous new owner of the Huntleigh Club and who eventually turns the gun barrel on the good guys.

While the first "Baywatch" trailer only gave her a blink-and-miss cameo appearance, the second one now featured her heavily, according to the Times of India. She's seen drinking wine as she's walking down the corridors of the Huntleigh Club, dancing and partying. Then in another scene, she is seen pointing a gun at Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) as she said, "Why are you trying to be a hero?"

What Priyanka Chopra's role will be in 'Baywatch'

There's not much information about the extent of the "Quantico" star's villainy in the Huntleigh Club. The second trailer of "Baywatch," however, does hint that she may have something to do with drugs and murder issues that suddenly mired the Baywatch team.

Whatever her evil intentions may be, though, good-cop, bad-cop tandem The Rock and Zac Efron (who plays Matt Brody) will be there to thwart her conniving in "Baywatch," according to First Post. Both trailers for the movie already showcased the unlikely yet wacky tandem, the type of comedic partnerships much like Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in "21 Jump Street."

What 'Baywatch' will be all about

For the newly initiated, "Baywatch" is an upcoming action-comedy film starring Johnson, Efron and Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and Ilfenesh Hadera. It's based on the hit 1990s series of the same title, and is about a team of incredibly attractive lifeguards who've ascended to cultural icons for their "slow-mo" runs across the beach. The original series starred David Hasselhoff, who will be making a cameo in the movie, Slash Film reported.

"Baywatch" will hit theaters on May 26.
