Priyanka Chopra-Karan Johar’s 2012 feud

In April 2012, rumors swirled about an alleged affair between Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan, causing tension among friends. Karan Johar, a close friend of Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan, defended Gauri and criticized the use of PR tactics to spread rumors. Priyanka’s friend supported her, stating she had done nothing wrong and suggesting any issues between Shah Rukh and Gauri should be addressed privately. Despite initial conflict, Karan Johar eventually reconciled with the situation maturely, leading to a resolution.

In 2021, Anjula Acharia recalled facing skepticism from individuals in the Indian film industry when she first signed Priyanka Chopra. Despite negative remarks and doubts about Chopra’s potential for success in Hollywood, Acharia remained steadfast in her belief in Chopra’s talent and her own abilities. She emphasized Chopra’s undeniable presence and disruptive nature, expressing confidence in her talent and the decision to support her career transition to Hollywood.

Anjula had said, “I remember when I first signed Priyanka, there were a lot of people, particularly in India who were so negative. I was at Manish Goel’s house at dinner with some prominent people from…I wouldn’t say Bollywood, they hate that word…the Hindi film industry, and they were just so negative about her. They were like ‘she’s never gonna work, I don’t know why you are wasting your time blah blah… I remember feeling really hurt at the time, ‘am I wasting my time?’ But this is where self-belief comes in. It seemed like a crazy dream right? To bring somebody from India to Hollywood but gotta tell you, when I look into Priyanka’s eyes… you just believe. And I think Priyanka was just undeniable. And I think she is a disruptor and I believe in her talent. I just had more belief in myself than what those people were telling me.”

The beef seems over now. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were also at the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre opening in Mumbai, along with so many other Indian celebrities, including Shah Rukh Khan.
