While Priyanka Chopra is riding high after winning the Filmfare best actress award for her role in Fashion, things are not hunky dory for her on another level. Known for her usually restrained image and ever so politically correct statements, Priyanka rubbed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan the wrong way while giving her thank you speech after she received the award.
This incident follows Priyanka’s fallout with once-upon-a-time good friend Abhishek Bachchan who too is upset with Priyanka for wanting to groove to the same song (‘Ma da laadla’ from Dostana) which he had selected for the same function.
Priyanka said that she was very happy to be nominated (Fashion, Dostana) among the likes of the beautiful Aishwarya Rai (Jodhaa Akbar) and the talented Kajol (U, Me Aur Hum). Priyanka’s euphoric statement however hasn’t gone down well with Aishwarya. Aishwarya is annoyed that Priyanka called her beautiful but said nothing about her acting talent.
An actor who was present at the function said, on condition of anonymity, “Priyanka should have chosen her words carefully. How can Priyanka sideline Aishwarya’s acting abilities?” “Aishwarya rarely loses her cool. But this time, she did. She is mighty upset with Priyanka,” added our source.
