Bereaved Priyanka Chopra makes first public appearance at Arjun Kapoor's bash
A couple of days ago, the who's who of tinsel town attended a bash hosted by Sonam Kapoor to bring in cousin Arjun Kapoor's 28th year on the planet.
Everyone from Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt to name a few, made their presence felt but it was the arrival of a bereaved Priyanka Chopra, who recently lost her father to cancer, that made heads turn.
A source close to the actor said to the Hindustan Times, “Arjun’s mother, the late Mona Kapoor, and Priyanka’s father were good friends. They met socially years ago and gradually became friends. And when Arjun invited Priyanka for the party, she decided to attend it for two reasons, her friendship with the actor (they are co-stars in the upcoming film, Gunday, which also stars Ranveer Singh) and the friendship their parents shared.”
The source goes on to add that while Priyanka has refrained from making any sort of public appearance after her father’s demise and has completely immersed herself in work, she did make an exception this time.
“She came straight from the shoot of her upcoming film, which is based on the life of boxer Mary Kom. She was casually dressed and didn’t stay for long. In fact, she exited in 30 minutes, though everyone asked her to stay longer. She just wished Arjun, greeted the rest of the crowd and left,” says the source.
