Priyanka finally opened up about her rumors & affairs with Shahrukh

Priyanka Chopra has finally opened up about the rumors that she’s been carrying on an affair with Shahrukh Khan, and it shouldn’t be much of a surprise to anyone that all the talk of her seducing a married father has left her hurt and angry.

In an interview that first appeared in the Times of India, Priyanka discusses her blooming music career, sounding very much like a little kid at Christmas when it comes to how excited she is to record her own music.

But of course the juciest bits of the interview are when the questioner finally gets around to asking her about Shahrukh Khan. Priyanka sounds very, very sincere when she says of the stories linking her to SRK: “They make me angry and upset me a lot.”

Priyanka goes on to state that though the affair rumors so far haven’t changed her relationship with Shahrukh, she’s afraid that they soon may. She may be right: already Shahrukh’s wife, Gauri, is working to freeze Priyanka out of the film industry’s busy social scene; and if the affair rumors persist, it likely won’t be long before Gauri Khan demands that her husband cease working with Priyanka. Twinkle Khanna demanded the same of her husband, Akshay Kumar, when she felt that he was getting a bit too steamy with Priyanka Chopra after the filming of Aitraaz.

Priyanka also came as close as she ever has to denying that she’s having an affair with Shahrukh. “I’ve always stood up for whatever I do and bear the consequences for it. But when it’s not my doing, it makes me angry.”

“When it’s not of my doing.” That sounds very much like Priyanka is claiming that she’s done nothing wrong. Reading her interview, it’s hard to assume otherwise. Though it’s true that she and Shahrukh Khan have a very close relationship, that hardly means that they’re in a relationship with each other.

The media backlash against Priyanka has been sharp and swift. Shahrukh is painted as the wholesome family man who was lured away by the seductive actress (a narrative which SRK’s fans have had a huge hand in perpetuating). Priyanka seems genuinely grieved about how the rumors might affect her relationship with Shahrukh, but says that so far he has been a good friend despite the media spotlight.

“He’s always been kind. I don’t think we’ve changed that much. I’m grateful for that.”
