Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra and her alleged affair with Shah Rukh Khan had been the talk of the Tinsel Town for a long, long time. There were stories after stories, and each time Shah Rukh and Priyanka’s ‘friendship’ was painted in myriad hues. The fiasco reached a threatening crescendo – so much so, that wifey Gauri Khan had to put a noose around Shah Rukh’s neck and pull him away from Piggy Chops! And no, the quintessential wife didn’t stop merely at that. She made sure that the bone of contention in her marital life (read: Priyanka) was ostracized out and out.
And what ensued thereafter, was the inevitable. The husband went that extra mile to prove his loyalty to his wife, and the King treated Priyanka in an unbelievable way. Chopra, who was once seen by Shah Rukh’s side on every single social gathering, received the cold shoulder from Shah Rukh. In the most extreme sense conceivable. Of course, the act of ignoring her didn’t go down well with Priyanka. And thus began her crawl up the ladder of recognition.
Once she was roped in for ‘Krrish 3’, Priyanka cleverly manoeuvred her way. She got back into the limelight, and was seen working hard for the film – there was her first success. She had managed to redeem herself in the eyes of Hrithik Roshan. Thereafter, one by one she made peace with the people Shah Rukh is known to be at loggerheads with – yes, beginning with Salman Khan. At Riteish Deshmukh’s birthday party, Priyanka was seen hugging Salman. After Salman, it was the turn to win over the other Khan – Aamir. Priyanka, this time too, had Lady Luck by her side. She dropped in on Aamir on the sets of an ad film shoot, and surprised the actor. And before long, the two were seen in an animated tete-a-tete over tea.
Priyanka, no doubt, has proved her mettle. Both as an actor and as a peacemaker. What remains to be seen is the look on Shah Rukh’s face and the feelings in his heart when he finds out what his ex-‘good friend’ has been up to. Shock or surprise, we leave it to the actor to decide!
