It is a proven fact that when a Hollywood movie is dubbed in Hindi, the entertainment quotient doubles up …NOT. The new trailer of Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood debut movie Baywatch starring Dwayne Johnson in the lead dropped and voila we have the sexy Bollywood Desi Girl in full swing. The English trailer showcased Quantico star’s substantial role as the main antagonist, but it was only the Baywatch Hindi trailer where the fun began. Priyanka Chopra addresses Zac Efron as Katrina Kaif, and it is not the only cringeworthy moment from the trailer video dubbed in Hindi!
When the first two trailers of Seth Gordan directed Baywatch released, it had Priyanka Chora in blink-and-miss appearances. Hence, when the third and latest trailer launched, PC fans in India were more than enthusiastic in approach to see their favourite actress’ role in her first Hollywood movie. Their patience paid off as indeed the new Baywatch trailer cements Priyanka Chopra’s role as Victoria Leeds, the main antagonist in the upcoming action-comedy flick.
The fans on Twitter and other social media platforms went berserk celebrating Priyanka’s supremely impressive presence in Baywatch. In order to please the Indian audiences, the makers released the trailer in the Hindi language. Well, it is here when you realized how translated statements could kill the vibes in no time.
There is a sequence when Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) and Matt Brody (Zac Efron) are shown discussing whether or not to figure about their nemesis, Victoria Leeds and her wrongdoings. Dwayne’s comment to Zac on ‘Why your balls sound like a three-year-old’ is converted to ‘tumhara dil teen saal ke bacche ki tarah kyun bol raha’. Zac’s reply from ‘I don’t know man but they are wise’ turns to ‘Dil toh baccha hai ji’ in Hindi trailer. Sigh!
But the most hilarious (read: eye-rolling weird ) moment from the Baywatch Hindi trailer comes when Priyanka Chopra on being confronted by Zac Efron dressed as a drag queen. The gorgeous Bollywood actress says – CHAL NA KATRINA. Naah, Naah, you did not hear it wrong, but that’s exactly what Priyanka called the Hollywood heartthrob. The dialogue in the original trailer is ‘Easy Britney’! Yes, go ahead and make all kinds of jokes now.
Baywatch is releasing on 2nd June 2017 and marks the Hollywood debut for Priyanka Chopra. She plays a badass lady boss who does not mind kicking some ass in order to run her illegal business. Apart from Dwayne, Zac, Priyanka, Baywatch also features Kelly Rohrbach and Alexandra Daddario. The film based on cult 90s TV series of the same name will also see special cameos from the stars of the original show Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff.
