Following various reports about the film industry side lining Priyanka Chopra, about her PR machinery crossing lines, and about her alleged affair with Shahrukh Khan putting her career in jeopardy; some odd balls are now coming out with fresh allegations on the cornered actress.
One such person is Annu Kapoor. In a recent interview, the veteran actor is reported to have said that Priyanka, who was his co-star in the critically-acclaimed 7 Khoon Maaf, did not take her role in the film seriously.
The movie portrayed the actress aging from 20 to 65 years, during which she goes through seven marriages. Annu, who had played the role of one of Priyanka’s seven husbands, supposedly does not think high of the actress.
Annu stated, “I have been in the industry for 30 years and have worked with some big actors. But when I worked with Priyanka in 7 Khoon Maaf, I felt she didn't take the role seriously.”
Dale Bhagwagar, who was Priyanka's ex-publicist defended the actress as he tweeted, “Priyanka Chopra not being serious about acting sounds frivolous.” He further went on to add, “Just look at the girl’s career graph. Andaaz, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Aitraaz, Bluffmaster!, Taxi No. Nau Do Gyarah, Krrish, Don, Fashion, Dostana, Kaminey, 7 Khoon Maaf, Don 2 and Agneepath – Brand Priyanka has contributed to more than a dozen hits in a decade; a pace, consistency and bankability unmatched by most of the other heroines in the industry.”
The PR specialist questioned, “Could all this be possible if she wasn’t dedicated or passionate towards her work.”
Well, we get the point Dale!
