Chinese whispers have been going around that poor Priyanka Chopra got an icy cold welcome at Shah Rukh Khan's Eid party at his Bandra home on 31 August. The actress is believed to have shown up looking elegant in a heavy ethnic dress, with fresh mehendi applied to her hands. But everyone, from the hostess Gauri Khan to her close friends, are believed to have mostly ignored Priyanka when she showed up. That's also the reason being cited for the actress' early exit from the party, well before other guests began heading home.
Insiders are saying Gauri isn't thrilled with all the rumours doing the rounds about her husband's closeness to Priyanka, and that Mrs Khan suspects it's the actress herself who might have a hand in fanning these stories.
Priyanka incidentally had the traditional Eid ka kheer prepared by a relative, and delivered to Shah Rukh Khan's home earlier the same da.
Do This Man a Favour...
Who said legends are above petty behaviour? A respected senior star reportedly called up a prominent Bollywood trade analyst last week to complain that the first-day box-office estimates that the analyst had announced for the new Salman Khan starrer Bodyguard were "ridiculously inaccurate" and "much higher" than the "real numbers". The star is believed to have chided the analyst for his "over-enthusiasm", and for misleading people in the industry and beyond who took his information seriously.
After explaining that these were estimates obtained from various distributors across the country, and after assuring the veteran star that the film's business was indeed looking very good, the trade analyst decided not to declare any further estimates until actual figures were in, out of respect for the senior.
But when the real numbers started coming in, it became clear that the film had performed much better than had been originally estimated, making as much as Rs 22 crore on its opening day alone—a record even the film's makers hadn't anticipated. The analyst waited patiently for the star to call and offer an apology for his earlier unnecessary attack. Not surprisingly, the star never called. No apology was offered.
The analyst still can't decide if the star's initial outburst was on account of a genuine concern for accurate reportage (bah!) or for the simple reason that very few in Bollywood can happily digest good news concerning someone other than themselves!
