It’s a sad state of affairs, isn’t it, when people become your friends just to bag a role? Salman Khan’s sister Arpita finds herself in this situation. If gossip mongers are to be believed, she is being courted by Priyanka Chopra. The two were spotted chatting away at Karan Johar’s birthday party recently. Priyanka and Salman have shared cold vibes since she refused to act in Main Aur Mrs Khanna, a Sohail Khan production. They hav ehardly spoken to each other in public in the last few years. At the same time, Priyanka started getting friendly with Shahrukh Khan. She went on every chat show and blushed her way through every mention of the Badshaah. With Shahrukh and Salman being rivals, the rift between PC and Sallu deepened.
Unfortunately for Priyanka, SRK has begun to give her the cold shoulder nowadays. Rumours of their affair have caused Shahrukh to distance himself from his Don heroine. The grapevine had also been abuzz about how Karan had initially not invited her to his birthday party. It seems as if PC is losing the support of SRK’s friends. We won’t be surprised if that has miffed our leggy lady. She did a guest appearance in RA.One just because Shahrukh asked her to, and now he is backing off from her! No wonder she decided to extend an olive branch to Salman.
Professionally too, it would do well for Piggy Chops to align herself with Salman. After all his films are doing much better than Shahrukh’s movies. Priyanka and Salman made a good pair in Mujhse Shaadi Karoge and Salaam-E-Ishq. If she has to bag a film with the Khan who is currently ruling the box office, he will have to call a truce to their fight. And only Arpita could persuade him to do so. That’s why the chatfest at KJo’s party.
The shelf life of a Bollywood heroine is short and there’s nothing wrong in wanting to extend it as much as possible. What’s sad is that Priyanka is going via Alvira instead of having the guts to walk up to Salman and speak to him directly. Or is she worried that he will ignore her the way he did Vivek Oberoi?
