Priyanka Chopra definitely aced every sector she made an entry into. From Miss World to a superstar in Bollywood to making it big in Hollywood, she nailed it all. Priyanka Chopra has become a global icon and also married the Hollywood actor Nick Jonas. But when we look in the desi cinema, our Desi Girl has a long list of affairs and relationships. Here’s the list of love affairs of Priyanka Chopra:
Priyanka Chopra & Aseem Merchant
Priyanka began her career with modelling. During her modelling days, she allegedly dated the actor Aseem Merchant. Aseem acted in films like Singh Saab the Great, Aseema: Beyond Boundaries, Bullet: Ek Dhamaka, Mr Joe B Carvalho, etc. The actors dated smoothly for a few years, according to the rumours. But after she made her grand debut in Bollywood, she broke up with the actor. According to Priyanka’s ex-manager, Prakash Jaju, the two loved each other very deeply. He also revealed that the love blossomed so much between them that Priyanka even tried to commit suicide while dating him. It was believed that PeeCee was quite serious about her relationship. But her frustration due to their frequent fights overpowered the love.
They came together before Priyanka won the title “Miss World” in 2002. She dumped Aseem after two years of winning the title. Jaju also revealed Bollywood women’s suicidal cases. He told the media that Priyanka tried jumping off the building after the death of Aseem Merchant’s mother. He also told that the actress tried to commit suicide a couple of times over bitter fights with Aseem. Merchant announced after a few years that he wants to make a film, titled “67 Days,” on the episode. However, the film was eventually shelved after Priyanka sent a legal notice to Merchant. However, Aseem later clarified the storyline focuses on the life of Prakash Jaju and not Priyanka Chopra. This might be the beginning of the love affairs of Priyanka Chopra.
Priyanka Chopra & Harman Baweja
Met during the shoot of the film “Love Story 2050”, the actors began their real-life stories as well after the film. But the two parted ways very soon before their second film “What’s Your Raashee?”. Harman was featured in films, such as Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai?, Dishkiyaoon, Chaar Sahibzaade: Rise of Banda Singh Bahadur and more. In an interview, Harman accepts his faults for their breakup. Priyanka asked him to give time and space to her but he failed to do so. He got too engrossed in his projects. After two consecutive flops, he felt pressure from inside to work well in his third film. He crossed all the boundaries and got too involved, which further led to their breakup.
The director Ashutosh Gowariker also warned Baweja to not involve himself so much in work, which eventually hampers his personal life. Though the couple parted ways, they still remain good friends. He even attended the wedding reception of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas held in Mumbai. Also, Baweja is now happily married to nutrition coach Sasha Ramchandani. The couple surely teaches us to end any relationship in a mature manner. They even did a whole movie together even after they fell apart as a couple. Holding grudges don’t usually help anyone, in fact, it destroys even the friendship if it remains in the relationship. Friendship should always be the first as well as last step of any relationship.
Priyanka Chopra & Shahid Kapoor
The Bollywood desi girl hooked up with this charming guy during the shoot of their film “Kaminey” in 2009. Their love affair became one of the most popular affairs of Priyanka Chopra. Though the couple never agreed to such claims, their actions spoke louder than words. Later, Shahid confirmed their relationship and told the public that it lasted for around 2 years. Their chemistry on the reality show “Koffee With Karan” spilled some extra beans on their secret relationship. Plus, Shahid opened the door on the morning when Income Tax officers raided Priyanka’s apartment in around 2011.
One of the reasons Priyanka did not acknowledge the affair in public might be because they both were seeing other people during that time. Rumours also surfaced that Shahid came close to Chopra after parting ways with Kareena. Priyanka did a movie “Teri Meri Kahani” in 2012 with Shahid even after breaking up, which again proves her level of maturity. Both the actors now remain happily married to other personalities.
Priyanka Chopra & Akshay Kumar
Even after being married to Twinkle Khanna, Akshay Kumar was reported to have an affair with Priyanka. The two worked together in a few films, such as Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Andaaz, Waqt: Race Against Time and Aitraaz. Their on-screen chemistry soon started shifting to off-screen as well. Though the two never admitted their affair in the public, but as they say “Action speaks louder than words”. Further, Twinkle’s decision to not let Akshay work with PeeCee added fuel to the fire. The two don’t even seem like on talking terms right now. They avoid each other at social gatherings, award functions and get-togethers. After a few years, when asked Akshay, if he wishes to work again with Priyanka, he agreed to it. Even Priyanka answered that the scripts matter more to her than the co-actors. She definitely considers working with Akshay if a good script comes along.
Priyanka Chopra & Shah Rukh Khan
The alleged love between the beauty bombshell and the Don of Bollywood blossomed on the sets of their film “Don 2”. This all began back in 2011 when the two stayed together even after the shooting of the film. They were spotted at various public places spending time together. Though Shah Rukh denies any such claims as he got into a married relationship with Gauri Khan.
The two never accepted the affair in public. They also never appeared in a film together after Don 2. When Priyanka was offered a role in the biopic “Salute”, she rejected the role. It was rumoured that the reason for denial was knowing that Shah Rukh Khan played a major role in the movie. Reports also suggested that Gauri asked for a divorce in the midst of all these rumours. She asked Shah Rukh Khan to not work with her together again and it became quite evident as well. He felt good to work with such an actor. Though they grew their families individually and stay happy, the two never shared a screen ever again.
Priyanka Chopra & Tom Hiddleston
Popular as playing the role of Loki in the Hollywood film series, he has been linked up with Priyanka. The two shared the stage two years back at an international award show. Since then, the rumours have not settled up regarding their relationship. Tom helped her in carrying her long dress and Priyanka helped him in adjusting his bow tie. This led to a fire on social media. However, the two denied any such reports.
Priyanka Chopra & Gerald Butler
The two remain good friends for a very long time. In 2009, PeeCee hosted a party for Gerard in which he proposed to her to marry him. But he denied the proposal. In 2012, he confessed his love for Priyanka in an interview. When asked the reason for him being single, he replied by saying that he had been waiting for Priyanka.
Priyanka Chopra & Ranbir Kapoor
