All eyes on Priyanka and Karan Johar
The apparent 'rivals' meet in the opening episode of a dance reality show
Priyanka Chopra may have attended Karan Johar’s birthday bash fashionably late to prove that all is well between her and the producer-director. But the actress now has another instance to further show that things are normal between the two. PC has agreed to be present for the opening episode of the dance show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa that has KJo as a judge along with Madhuri Dixit and Remo Fernandes.
She is slated to shoot on Wednesday at the Filmistan Studios. This is part of her upcoming film’s promotions. Co-star Shahid Kapoor will not be present making PC go the full hog on the show in yet another attempt to mend fences with the filmmaker.
Says a source, “Both are aware of the presence of the other. As it is the opening episode, the channel wants it to be grand. Karan and PC may have patched up and let bygones be bygones but the birthday bash was a happy occasion and there were numerous people also present. This time PC will have to interact on the sets as well as off with Karan as he is the judge.”
Adds the source, “As Priyanka will be present solo on the show, it will be interesting to watch how she will go about it in the presence of the filmmaker. All eyes will be on her. Priyanka will introduce contestant Darsheel Safary in the opening episode and is also likely to get jiggy with him.”
After Priyanka’s friends hit back at star wives (read: Gauri Khan) in a section of the press for launching a campaign against her, Karan Johar had taken to his micro-blogging site to vent out his anger. He had stated, “Using hired PR machinery and hiding behind so called friends to get news…. is nothing but spineless and lame! Some people need to wake up and smell the koffee! Get a reality check before it’s too late! Grow up! And don’t mess with goodness.”
The ex factor
Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor are on an overdrive for their upcoming film’s promotional events. The ex lovers being professionals are all over the place together. But PC seems to be hellbent on proving that all is well between her and her ex-flame. She has been overdoing her bit with Sasha. Check out the accompanying pictures…
