The actress walked the red carpet amongst Hollywood's elite celebrities, no less for a gala opening of a Billion Dollar state of the art Hotel in Dubai. Branson was reportedly totally floored. He said, "You're the only woman worthy of being called a Goddess. You're one of the most beautiful women in the world."
Priyanka said, "Yes, the incident with Branson really happened. He was just being sweet and chivalrous. I didn't know how to react. I gathered my wits and said a calm 'Thank you'.
She talked about other Hollywood stars as well. She added, "He is Robert De Niro, man! He just kept smiling. His wife spoke more than him. He said he was very happy to meet what he called young talent from Bollywood."
Well, we just hope Priyanka and her PR machinery is not just making it all up.
The buzz is that multi millionaire businessman Richard Branson happened to be mighty impressed by our Priyanka Chopra.
