Celebrating Indian Cinema- 2011
While all his friends including Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani, Chunkey & Bhavna Pandey and Mushtaq Sheikh were present in the party, Priyanka's absence actually shocked everyone. A source from the party informed Mumbai Mirror, "Everybody at the party were heard whispering about Priyanka's absence. She is a very good friend of Shahrukh Khan. She has been by his side for all the promotional events of Don 2. She had been a part of most of the parties at Mannat as well. It wasn't that she was traveling on Saturday. She was very much in the city. And till date, she has never missed SRK's parties."
While industry insiders believe that there could be a bigger reason behind her non-attendance at the Don 2 party, a very close friend of the actress told, "Priyanka was busy shooting at Madh Island. Then she had to come back to Versova. Her parents were leaving town. So she was busy."
