Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra have been avoiding each other for almost a decade now for reasons best known to them. According a story in Pinkvilla Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan avoided each other for the umpteenth time at a recently held awards function.

Amongst those in attendance was Shah Rukh Khan who came for a short period of time and left. The reason why it is surprising is that, in the recent past, SRK and PeeCee tend to avoid each other at a public gathering. This was evident during the Ganpati bash, this year when they arrived at two different timings.

Similarly, at the Zee Cine Awards, the duo, who have been in the news several times because of their close friendship, avoided an encounter. Shah Rukh arrived earlier than Priyanka and did not pose for the shutterbugs on the red carpet like Priyanka did.

A source revealed to us, "Shah arrived through the gate reserved for the stars who were performing. Their vans were positioned there. By the time Priyanka entered the venue he had left so they didn’t meet each other."

Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka is yet to sign the dotted line on a Bollywood movie in spite of many movie offers. Her recent trip to India may change that. A source close to Priyanka revealed to a leading daily, "She has lined up meetings with a few directors who have offered her films. She's already picked some scripts that interest her and will make time to sit for all the narrations, while she’s in Mumbai. This time, she will definitely sign on the dotted line for something before she heads back."

On the other hand, Shah Rukh is currently shooting for Aanand L. Rai's untitled movie which also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. The movie is slated for a Christmas 2018 release.
