After making bad look sexy in Baywatch with her character Victoria Leeds, Priyanka Chopra will be seen alongside Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth and Adam Devine in her second Hollywood film Isn’t It Romantic?, as a yoga ambassador. The production of the romantic comedy is underway.
Principal photography has begun on Isn’t It Romantic?, under the direction of Todd Strauss-Schulson, read a statement.
The film follows the life of a New York City architect Natalie, who works hard to get noticed at her job, but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city’s next skyscraper. She has an encounter with a mugger that renders her unconscious, waking to discover that her life has suddenly become her worst nightmare.
Rebel Wilson stars as Natalie, alongside Liam Hemsworth as Blake, a handsome client; Adam Devine, as her earnest best friend, Josh; and Priyanka as yoga ambassador Isabella. Strauss-Schulson is helming the project from a screenplay by Erin Cardillo, Dana Fox and Katie Silberman, and Paula Pell. The filming is taking place in and around New York City.
The film is set for release beginning Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2019.
Isn’t It Romantic? is Priyanka’s third Hollywood project after Baywatch, which released earlier this year, and A Kid Like Jake that is slated for a 2018 release.
Baywatch marked Priyanka’s Hollywood debut. While the film was panned by critics across the world, Priyanka’s performance was praised unanimously. Chopra’s first major breakthrough in the West happened when she bagged the lead role in the TV show Quantico.
