The news of ‘Quantico’ actress Priyanka Chopra’s engagement with American singer Nick Jonas was the talk of the evening during the Vouge Beauty Awards 2018. While Bollywood celebrities were dressed to impress— Shah Rukh Khan’s reaction to his rumoured ex-girlfriend’s engagement won the internet!
Shah Rukh Khan is not only known for being the king of romance in Bollywood but also the king of spouting out witty answers on command. Time and again Shah Rukh Khan has proved that he is not only a stellar actor but also a very jolly person who enjoys having his legs pulled, sometimes. So, obviously during the award show Shah Rukh was asked to comment on his rumoured ex-lady love’s engagement to 25-years old American singer Nick Jonas.
When the actor was asked to comment on Priyanka’s engagement and upcoming wedding, Shah Rukh Khan swiftly replied, “Even I am getting married. I’ll send you an invite. I will send you the card for the reception and also, do come for the mehendi.”
As expected Shah Rukh Khan’s witty answer charmed everyone in the audience!
Until few years back Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra were good friends, however, reportedly, sparks flew between the pair while filming for Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Don 2’.
The closeness between the two actors did not go unnoticed. Soon the rumours of Shah Rukh Khan cheating on his wife Gauri Khan and having an extra-marital affair with Priyanka Chopra started circulating. When Shah Rukh and Priyanka stepped out at 3 A.M. together it only confirmed the rumours but the couple brushed it off as award show rehearsals.
In fact, if rumours are to be believed, a very frustrated Gauri Khan gave Shah Rukh Khan an ultimatum to mend his ways and sever all ties with Priyanka Chopra. Since then the two actors have never acted with one another or even seen together.
After months of making headlines together owing their late-night dates, Mumbai visit, cute Instagram posts and comments, finally Nick Jonas asked Priyanka to marry him during the actress’ 36th birthday celebration in London. Reportedly the desi-firangi couple is expected to get hitched around Nick Jonas’ birthday in September or sometime during October this year.
While talking to the press at the award show Kangana Ranaut even confirmed her ‘Fashion’ co-star Priyanka Chopra’s engagement. However, even she is unaware of the upcoming wedding date.
