10 Shocking Controversies surrounding Priyanka Chopra that you haven't heard
Updated: Jul 24, 2019
1. The Armpit Controversy
This one is still so fresh in our minds! Yes, we are talking about her incredibly hot Maxim cover. The world leapt at a chance to find faults in Pee Cee, and were quick to point out that her armpits looked more like a 'baby's bottom' than human armpits. Who even notices that much?! Twitter found yet another way to body shame and said that her armpits raised 'unrealistic expectations'. But Priyanka took to Twitter and posted a nofilter picture of her 'pit-stopping' underarms.
2. Priyanka vs Kareena
We all know about the constant rivalry between Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka.
Kareena, being blunt as ever, on Koffee With Karan, rhetorically asked, "I wonder where she gets that accent from?" referring to Pee Cee. To which, the Quantico star replied that she got it from the same place that Saif does.
3. The Mary Kom Controversy
Honestly, the film was amazing. Priyanka's Mary Kom biopic, set goals for women everywhere to achieve their dreams. But it also gave birth to a huge controversy. Why was Priyanka chosen to play a Northeast Indian character? She was accused of cultural chauvinism when her before and after looks were revealed.
4. The Alleged Akshay Kumar Affair
The duo got really close during the shooting of 'Aitraaz' and were rumoured to be just as steamy off camera as they were on camera. Think Pee Cee slipped too much into character and embodied their homewrecker story in real life too. It actually drove Twinkle Khanna to ban Akshay from acting with her ever again.
5.Relationship with Sharukh Khan
We can't deny the chemistry between Priyanka and Shah Rukh Khan, especially on the sets of Don 2. The actor had an alleged affair with SRK that shook Bollywood. Although, we don't know what *really* happened off camera, but it definitely did not look good.
6.Priyanka Chopra's maiden production in Bhojpuri was seen as ‘extremely obscene'
Priyanka Chopra's first movie as a producer has apparently left regional cinema furious over its 'raunchy and obscene' content. The Bhojpuri movie titled 'Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi' was dubbed as extremely 'cheap and vulgar.' However, calling it the content requirements of regional cinema, Priyanka said that she herself is fond of such 'lakte-jhatkes.' National Award winning director Nitin N Chandra lashed out at PC by calling the movie extremely obscene and said that PC has not only "defamed herself" but also "besmirched her Padma Shri" by producing a movie like this. He further added he will write an open letter to her. However, this did not deter Priyanka from being felicitated by the Bihar government at a ceremony organised by the Bihar State Film Development Corporation recently.
7. Priyanka Chopra's name was dragged into a controversy when a spa that she had leased her property to was busted for allegedly being involved in a sex racket.
The link between the actress and the spa hasn't been established, the fact that she is the owner of the property is not going unnoticed. According to a report in mid-day, the spa, that the actress had rented out her Versova property to, was the hub of a flourishing flesh trade. Charisma Spa and Beauty Centre was raided by the police after a tip off that the business was a mere decoy for illegal activities, the report states. In the report, a police source has been quoted as saying that the owner of the spa, Manik Soni was absconding, but the investigations were on and action would be taken as soon as the accused was arrested and the agreement verified.
8. The controversy surrounding Priyanka Chopra's 'bare-legged' meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin
Priyanka Chopra was attacked and trolled on social media for her so-called "indecent" attire during her meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin. The leggy lass, who was in Germany to promote her Hollywood debut, Baywatch, along with Dwayne Johnson, chose to wear a knee length dress rather than traditional wear, for which she received flak.
While Priyanka gave a befitting reply to the trolls by sharing another photograph of herself along with her mother Madhu Chopra, flaunting their long legs, she never really opened up about the issue to the media.
9) Priyanka Chopra has no time to promote 'Jai Gangaajal'
With a parallel career in Bollywood and Hollywood, former Miss World, Priyanka Chopra's career was at an all time high. The lady had been making waves in Hollywood. After winning the People's Choice Award for her hit TV show, Quantico, PC was all set to present at the Oscars this year. Due to her hectic Hollywood schedule she was not able to promote the movie. Meanwhile, director Prakash Jha, who also has a key role in the film, has already begun his promotional city tours with actor Manav Kaul.
10)Priyanka Chopra smokes on yacht in Miami
Actress Priyanka Chopra, who opened up about suffering from asthma last year, was seen enjoying a smoke on a yacht with her family. In a photograph, which has now gone viral on social media, Priyanka is seen smoking a cigarette. While her mother Madhu Chopra and husband Nick Jonas are seen enjoying a cigar on the yacht ride.
Netizens are criticising the actress for being "hypocrite" and "fake".
