5 similarities you didn’t know existed between Priyanka Chopra’s Baywatch and Deepika Padukone’s xXx: The Return of Xander Cage

Yes, we are as surprised as you…

Only a few days back, we told you how Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra‘s Hollywood debuts, xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage and Baywatch respectively, will pan out upon release and where the two ladies stand presently, we couldn’t help but notice that despite being two completely different films, there are a few similarities. Let us tell you how..

Of Paramount importance

Paramount pictures have something to do with both the films. While it is one of the producers of Baywatch, it will distribute xXx: The Return of Xander Cage at many territories. So you can imagine the kind of push the studio will put behind both the films. So come 2017, get ready to see more of Deepika and Priyanka. Also, both the films are releasing in the first half of 2017 and will predict what to expect of the year next.

Ensemble assembly

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and Baywatch have an ensemble cast. Apart from Priyanka Chopra, Baywatch also has Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, David Hasselhoff and others while Deepika has the company of Vin Diesel, Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose. Although they have completely different characters and it seems PC has a meatier role, you can’t deny the fact that both will have to rise above the rest to stand out. And that will be a challenge for both the babes.

Blast from the past

Baywatch is a series of the 80s that a lot of people have seen. In fact, it was one of the longest running shows on TV. Pamela Anderson running on the beach is perhaps the first thing men think the moment the word Baywatch is uttered. The same is now returning as a film. There is a lot of nostalgia and memories attached to the film. As for xXx The Return Of Xander Cage, the franchise will get revived by this third film. Both of them have legacies they have to take forward.

Stylish stunts

The teaser of xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage made it amply evident what to expect from the film. It will be momentous and have some spectacular stunts. With Vin Diesel, you can expect the action to take a big leap here. Baywatch on the other hand will have lifeguards trying to save people and given the premise of the film where a criminal plot will be hacked, you can expect some fantastic beachy stunts as well.

Action superstars 

Priyanka may not be paired opposite Dwayne Johnson in Baywatch, but she plays his nemesis. The latter, also known as The Rock, has been one of the best actions superstars of Hollywood. Now if you consider xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, it has Vin Diesel. This guy is very popular everywhere. His action films have become big hits almost everytime.

And you thought PC and DP’s debuts are completely different.
