Caring not a hoot for the wagging tongues, Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan says Priyanka Chopra is and always will be “very close” to his heart.
Just a few months back, there was a lot of brouhaha about Priyanka Chopra being pushed to a corner by the clique of star wives, helmed by Gauri Khan, for her rumoured affair with Shahrukh Khan. Even SRK’s trusted buddy Karan Johar had ntaken a not-so-subtle potshot at Priyanka after a tabloid report.
While speaking to CNN IBN recently, Shahrukh regretted the whole incident and said that Priyanka is close to his heart.
“(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 quoted as saying.
The row between Priyanka Chopra and the star wives came to the fore with a tabloid report in which a friend of the actress had sniped at the star wives by saying that if women are insecure about their relationships with their husbands, they should sort it out with them, instead of blaming PeeCee.
In retaliation, Karan Johar had jumped in the fray and tweeted: “Using their hired PR machinery and hiding behind so called “friends” to get news into tabloids is nothing but spineless and lame!!!”
The matter has now been sorted out and Karan Johar is again on talking terms with Priyanka. However, Shahrukh Khan’s latest revelation that Priyanka is and always will be close to his heart might rile a few egos.
