After buzz about her romance with Shah Rukh Khan, and apparently infuriating the star wives’ gang and being cornered in an industry known for its camps, it looks like PC and SRK are back in the news.
Rumours of their alleged romance started ‘leaking out’ during the promotions of Don 2. Both categorically denied the claims. For a long while, both the actors were not to be seen in each other’s company. But ever since the awards season has begun, looks like there’s no stopping the two from ‘hanging out’ with each other.
Chumma chumma de de?
January 4: At Ronnie Screwvala’s reception bash for the newly-married Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapoor, Priyanka dashed out of the party the moment SRK and Gauri Khan walked in.
January 5: However, next day at Mukesh Ambani’s party at Antilia, PC stayed back till late. A tabloid reported that SRK was present at the party sans his wife. Incidentally, during the party SRK opted for a walk in the garden and PC followed suit. Apparently, they had a row followed by the actor issuing orders to her not to ‘touch’ or ‘follow’ him.
January 12: At the Colors Screen Awards, a lot of eyebrows were raised when SRK and PC performed a skit together. And that’s when the infamous ‘kiss’ took place. SRK smooched PC on her cheek in full public view. Later after their duet performance, PC was spotted dropping into SRK’s vanity van accompanied Boman Irani and Kunal Kapoor. Even SRK’s daughter Suhana was present inside the van.
January 20: At a magazine awards gala, Piggy Chops chose to take a seat next to SRK’s sister Lala. At the after-party the same night, SRK and PC were spotted together
There was also rumour that PC had been signed SRK’s next to be helmed by Farah Khan.
Given that they have been busy denying their ‘close’ friendship all of last year, the industry insiders are agog at the antics the duo has been up to at recent public shows. Their personal equation demonstrated at recent award functions begs to paint a different picture.
Sources say that given the stormy face-offs their cronies have had on the matter, the pair should hardly agree to host a show together. An industry source says, “While the acts were all fun, the chemistry between them is already the talk of the town.
There are various rumours about them already and by performing together on the stage, they are only inviting trouble.
The industry audience at the show was definitely taken aback over the acts. SRK and PC could have easily insisted on changing the script and especially avoided the ‘kiss’, which was part of their act.”
