“She’s one of the biggest stars in the world. Insanely talented, relentlessly smoking and extremely dangerous – perfect for #Baywatch. Welcome @PriyankaChopra to our bad a** and incredibly dysfunctional family. Cue Rated R slo-mo running on the beach. We start shooting next week. World. #WelcomeToBaywatch,” Johnson wrote alongside the video.
