It was an action-packed evening at the 19th Annual Colors Screen Awards: The offbeat cinema in Bollywood scooped the cake and the cream. Many of our favorite Hindi film celebrities scorched the red carpet in some seriously eye-catching fashion.
But the one act that had a clean sweep and hogged all the limelight was actress Priyanka Chopra’s performance along with Shah Rukh Khan.
And what makes it more daring is Shah Rukh’s wife Gauri Khan was right there watching the performance.
For Shah Rukh’s sake let us state the fact that SRK and Gauri arrived hand-in-hand for the ceremony. So all is well between them.
But we know for the fact that Priyanka has been avoiding the Khans. At a certain Bollywood party when SRK-Gauri arrived at the venue Priyanka beat a hasty retreat despite reaching barely 15 minutes earlier.
But was she avoiding both or just Gauri? Incidentally, the very next day at another do, with no Mrs Khan around, Priyanka happily lingered on till the end.
Wondering what’s the entire hullabaloo about?
Well, to cut the long story short; the alleged affair between Priyanka and SRK saw wife Gauri go ballistic. She and her circle of fiercely protective friends forbid Priyanka from all Bollywood events.
Strange rumours floated around that the actress had no job at hand and SRK was banned from working with her. Priyanka was cornered while maintaining that she and SRK are ‘just good friends’.
However, latest reports suggest that SRK and Priyanka will be featured opposite each other in Farah Khan’s next ‘Happy New Year’.
We won’t be surprised if this performance and leak about her role in ‘Happy New Year’ is actually staged; after all the duo are, indeed, ‘great actors’ “pun intended”.
But as audience we do not mind any sort of entertainment on-screen or off.
Gauri Khan (née Chhibber) is an Indian film producer and designer who has designed spaces for high-profile individuals such as Mukesh Ambani, Roberto Cavalli and Ralph Lauren, as well as Bollywood celebrities such as Karan Johar, Jacqueline Fernandez and Sidharth Malhotra. She is the co-founder and co-chairperson of the film production company Red Chillies Entertainment and its subsidiaries. Khan is married to Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan. In 2018, Khan was named as one of Fortune magazine’s “50 Most Powerful Women”.
