It is a big moment for Parineeti Chopra. Winning a national award at so early on in her career is a big achievement. But unfortunately her favourite cousin Priyanka Chopra couldn’t be part of it, even though she intended to.
Priyanka has said to have earlier promised Parineeti that she will make sure to travel with her to Delhi to attend the national award, she couldn’t manage to do so. Instead, Priyanka sent her mother, Madhu to accompany Parineeti to Delhi.
Last year Priyanka had thrown a party to celebthe success of Ishaqzaade, for which Parineeti won the national award.
A source says, “Priyanka was excited to go to Delhi. She was all set to attend the ceremony but due to some work commitments, she had to cancel her visit.”
The source adds, “Priyanka, however, ensured that her mother went instead to give Parineeti the emotional support.”
The event was on last Friday and Parineeti celebrated over the weekend in Delhi with her friends and family. Talking to us from Delhi, she says, “Not only my aunt (Madhu), about 14 relatives came for the function and were whistling, cheering for me even though it was supposed to be a sombre ceremony. We later had a party for 70 other family members. We were all singing, eating and laughing.
Everyone was excited to meet each other after such a long time.” So finally, it turned out to be a big, boisterous Punjabi re-union party, even without Priyanka Chopra.
