Why did Priyanka Chopra delay 'Mary Kom' music launch?

Sources say that Priyanka Chopra came in late for the music launch of upcoming biopic 'Mary Kom', pushing the event ahead by more than two hours

Bollywood has a fair share of actors and actresses who are known for throwing tantrums and it looks like Priyanka Chopra has joined this club. The actress is said to have given the makers of her latest film, Mary Kom, a tough time when she turned up late for its music launch on Wednesday.

Says the source, “Priyanka was supposed to attend the music launch of her film at around 8pm at a suburban hotel in Mumbai. But she ended up reaching quite late. And though she apologised for the same, it didn’t stop her from asking for changes in the draft of the speech she was going to make. As a result of this, the event was delayed by a good two and a half hours.”

The source says that Priyanka was going to host the event and she had to make a small speech as well. “But she didn’t like the script that was given to her, so she discussed the same with director Omung Kumar and changed it. This, combined with her delay in reaching the venue, meant that the event didn’t start before 10.30pm even though mediapersons had reached at 8pm.”

But another source close to Priyanka says that PeeCee found the script to be a little superficial and that’s why she wanted to tone it down. “She had to make these last minute changes. Also, she had a long day since she was busy shooting for Zoya Akhtar’s film, Dil Dhadakne Do, at Mehboob Studios in Bandra. She had to finish work there before making it to the music launch.” Priyanka’s spokesperson was not available for comment.
