Mumbai: The two had turned thick friends while shooting for ‘Don’ remake and its sequel and were rumoured to be in a relationship. Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan’s equation had turned sour publicly later but they chose to remain tightlipped about what went wrong between the two.
Shah Rukh Khan, a much married man was making headlines for his alleged “affair” with his co-star while Priyanka, was being held responsible for causing trouble in Gauri’s (SRK’s wife) paradise.
It is almost a year since the two actors have maintained distance from one another, but looks like SRK is not ready to give up his friendship with PC.
Talking to CNN-IBN, SRK said, “(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.”
SRK is probably not too happy with the kind of treatment meted out to Priyanka and hence decided to voice his opinion about her.
That’s like being a good friend, Mr Khan.
