Mumbai: Former actress Neelam Kothari has cleared the air about her alleged role in spreading rumours about Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan.
A daily had reported that Priyanka was miffed with Neelam for spreading false news about her affair with King Khan.
The story also stated that Priyanka and Neelam had an ugly spat on the same issue. Peeved with false reports about her, Neelam took to Twitter to clear her role.
The jewellery designer tweeted, “Don`t know how to react to a certain article that has come out today, claiming that I am responsible for starting certain rumours. I`m shocked and hurt with these allegations!! This is the first time in the whole of my career I have been dragged into a controversy.. Not fair at all!! Gauri and Sharukh happen to be my dear friends and will continue to be so.. Would never say anythin derogatory about them(sic).”
Neelam also said that she never had any kind of fight with Priyanka Chopra. “As for Priyanka Chopra... No we have never had a fight.. Get your facts right people!!(sic).”
Owing to Neelam’s closeness to Gauri Khan, everyone had assumed she was source of all these rumours. Well, hope the air is clear now.
Meanwhile, Priyanka hasn’t reacted to the issue yet.
