“(I) Feel extremely sorry, for she (Priyanka) wasn’t shown the respect I show her, or other women. Priyanka Chopra is one of the closest friends that I have, she is very close to my heart, and always will be”, that’s what Sharukh Khan had to say on the matter of his special ‘friendship’ with Priyanka Chopra. So its seems that Shahrukh Khan is not only a star but a great friend to know also. But with reports of Priyanka Chopra ditching Shahrukh Khan to become close to his rival Salman Khan, looks like there is a twist in the tale much like a Bollywood masala pot boiler.
Priyanka Chopra has been linked to almost every actor she has happened to star with. Akshay Kumar was one of the first link ups, then came others like Harman Baweja, Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor and the biggest link up rumours with King Khan and now finally Salman Khan. More link ups than any other Bollywood actress of her generation it would seem. Priyanka Chopra however seems to have rolled with the punches every time. But it looks like she may be pushing the line with Shahrukh Khan after he has so candidly spoken of his affections for her. It doesn’t bode well to go against Shahrukh in Bollywood. after all it is still a male dominated industry.
But that’s where Piggy Chops seems to have done what no other heroine has managed. Make friends with Shahrukh’s equally powerful so called enemy, Salman Khan. If it’s anyone who can stand up to Shahrukh it’s Salman. So PC does seem to have weighed her pros and cons decided that maybe her friendship with Shahrukh did not perhaps give her as many dividends as her friendship with Salman Khan will.
