She’s known for her cool temperament but there’s a limit to even Priyanka Chopra’s patience. The star got into a heated verbal argument with a man in Delhi while promoting her just released film ‘7 Khoon Maaf’. He was out to rattle her, and PC finally reacted.
The incident happened at the recording of an interactive interview. A man, apparently from Punjab, piped in to accuse Priyanka of "not being a Punjabi".
Said a member of Priyanka’s entourage: "Priyanka was taken aback by the accusation. At first she laughed it off saying she is very much Punjabi. But the man kept piping in loudly with his allegation. Priyanka finally told him to shut up and quit before she got really angry."
The man disappeared from the venue soon after, but Priyanka, known to be extremely warm to fans, was hurt by the vehemence of the accusation.
Apparently the man kept insinuating she had done nothing for Punjab and Punjabis.
The spokesperson for ‘7 Khoon Maaf’ confirmed the incident adding: "It was weird and inopportune. Priyanka’s Punjabiyat had nothing to do with the occasion. We don’t know where the man came from and where he disappeared to. But the whole incident was suspicious."
Priyanka’s father is Punjabi while her mother is from Jharkhand. She spent her growing years in Rai Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh.(IANS)
