The truth shall prevail. Haven’t we heard the adage. It seems to hold true even in the makeshift field of glitz n glamour. Yes. Remember the Shah Rukh Khan-Priyanka relationship? How their off-shoot acts that salivated movie buffs for some time quietly faded away to the backstage once the duo screamed ‘friendship’.
Well, just as we settled in to believe them, and shoved away all news as rumours, in comes their barrage of tweets, revealing the duo are, indeed, ‘great actors’ [pun intended].
Read on… below is a list of SRK-Chopra ‘friendship’ tweets
When Priyanka’s movie ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ was due to be released SRK wished her good on Twitter. “All the best @priyankachopra for TMK. Working so can’t make it to Premier.Will catch it later if i can get tickets! It’ll be huge InshaAllah.”
Then came ‘Barfi’ and Priyanka was applauded for her acting prowess. But Priyanka reserved her thanks for – SRK.
“Also thank u @iamsrk for lending me all ur my name is Khan research, u gave me perspective on Jhilmil..owe u another one..love always”, she wrote on Twitter.
And well she almost confessed her love on Twitter while talking about SRK’s upcoming movie ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’, “Loved the trailer! Cant wait for the film! Loved @iamsrk kat and anushka.”
When the actress turned singer Shah Rukh was all praises for her, “Priyanka has the capacity and talent to become the first crossover star from India, our first creative export. She has a super team backing her and she is truly an international brand and will make India very proud.”
Responding to SRK’s compliment, Priyanka Chopra posted on Twitter: “Thank u @iamsrk..ur belief has always kept me going.”
There was a subtle exchange of jokes on the social networking site. SRK asked Priyanka for discount to watch her live concert. But interestingly this tweet was deleted from SRK’s account.
Priyanka responded, “Very funny!! U were the first to make me sing! Chalo done! Aapke liye 25% discount!Hahahaha! Thank u @iamsrk ! Too exciting”.
“BTW looooovw challa @iamsrk !! Tooooooo adorable! Love the army gear! Kill it!!!!!” she continued.
And according to latest reports Priyanka also sent a bouquet of flowers to SRK’s office on his birthday on November 2 despite not making to the 47th birthday guest list.
Now, this is despite Gauri Khan keeping her away from the guest list!
It may be recalled how Ms Chopra was ignored by the Bollywood big wigs because Mrs Khan was offended. She was called marriage breaker by King Khan loyalists and shunted from all Bollywood dos and parties.
Soon the duo maintained ‘distance’ in public and announced their relation was just ‘friendship’.
