One tight slap from Priyanka Chopra
Thursday midnight, Priyanka Chopra hit back at a man who misbehaved with her outside her vanity van where she was shooting in Colaba. A young guy, probably in 20s, caught hold of Priyanka the moment she stepped out to join her colleagues after the day’s shoot for her upcoming film with Zayed Khan, directed by Siddharth Anand.
“Priyanka finished her shoot and went back to her vanity van to change. After some time, she stepped out to join Siddharth Anand and Tarun Mansukhani sitting in a different enclosure, from where they were all supposed to go for dinner. Suddenly, a man came running towards her and demanded, ‘You must talk to me!’” One eye witness said.
“At this point, the man grabbed her arm roughly and pulled her close to him. Stunned at his aggressiveness, Priyanka, shot back at him, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ But the man was in no mood to listen and did not let go of her arm. An angry Priyanka slapped the guy hard, sending him reeling,” sources said.
At this point, a few members from the cast and crew who had been watching the incident from a distance came to Priyanka’s rescue. “They caught hold of that guy. After talking to him for a bit, they let him go,” sources added.
“The actress did not file a police complaint. She didn’t want to pursue the matter and make it complicated. That guy deserved a tight slap. In fact, Priyanka should have slapped him harder for his audacity.” A close friend of Priyanka said.
