Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, who is making her Hollywood debut with Baywatch, says she tried hard to be a jerk on the set of the upcoming action comedy film.

Chopra will be seen playing antagonist Victoria Leeds in Baywatch, which also features Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron.

“We got on really well, though I tried really hard to be a jerk, I couldn’t because everyone was super fine,” Copra said on the red carpet of the film’s Miami premiere on Saturday.

“Also, I was flying in and out as I was shooting Quantico and Baywatch together. But I did try to go a little method in my walk and in my talk. I am happy to be here. Baywatch is great summer fun. By the way, don’t take your kids [to the movie],” she added.

Talking about her co-stars, Chopra said: “Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron were a little more conscientious than me.”

Chopra shared a few photographs from the premiere on Twitter.

“Thank you for the love Miami! Baywatch premiering on May 25 in a theatre near you,” she wrote alongside a video in which she showed the fans who had gathered to meet the stars.

Baywatch will release in the UAE on July 20.
