Ashutosh humiliates Priyanka
Director Ashutosh Gowariker turns out to be a spoil spot at the IIFA event. After putting down the two hosts of IIFA, Ritesh Deshmukh and Boman Irani for making a spoof of ‘Jodhaa Akbar, he disgraced Priyanka Chopra who won the best actress award for ‘Fashion’. He compared Priyanka with Aishwarya and expressed his shock for Ash not winning the best actress award when she was also nominated in the same category for ‘Jodhaa Akbar’.
It happened in the following way, first Priyanka Chopra won the best actress award for ‘Fashion’ and then Ashutosh Gowariker went up to the stage to collect the best director award for ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ . In his thank you speech, he remarked, “Priyanka I love you, but I don't know how you got the award for Best Actress when Aishwarya was also nominated in the same category for Jodhaa Akbar.”
The very next moment, he realized that he is humiliating the actress whom he has cast for his next venture, ‘What’s Your Rashee?’ He then makeup things like this, “May be it is because you are very hard-working and she is a natural.”
Priyanka remained calm but missed out the after-event party at Abhishek-Aishwarya suite in order to avoid Ashutosh.
