Priyanka Chopra celebrates her 36th birthday today. The former Miss World has come a long way since she won the crown at the tender age of 18 years. PeeCee may have not been the stereotypical actress in Bollywood but she raised the bar in Hollywood after winning hearts in ABC’s Quantico.
Recently, Priyanka has been in news for her rumoured relationship with pop sensation Nick Jonas, who is 10 years younger than her. Although, the pair has never made it an official note, it isn’t difficult to read between the lines. The desi- firangi couple started seeing each other during the 2017 Met Gala and their alleged relationship has touched upon intimate dinners, family outings, private vacations and now the trip to London for an early birthday bash.
We do hope to see love in PeeCee’s life, as the actress enters a new chapter this year. It may seem that she is smitten by Nick and is madly in love but the sentiment at this stage didn’t come easy. Chopra’s early days in Bollywood led to several link ups and there will always remain the question of what’s with Priyanka Chopra and the age gap with her flames. The actress has been paired with men who are elder than her but this time the global star is breaking all barricades dating the Jonas brother.
This model turned actor was allegedly in a relationship with Priyanka during her modelling days. Chopra had not tasted fame and Aseem seemed to be her guide in the industry. This naïve relationship did not last and PeeCee left him behind as soon as she entered Bollywood.
Coming to Priyanka’s baby steps in Bollywood when she did multiple films with Akshay such as ‘Andaaz’, ‘Aitraaz’, ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karoge’ and Waqt. Priyanka was only 21 back then, whereas Akki a married man to Twinkle Khanna was 15 years older than her. Priyanka had done some bold scenes back then and Twinkle didn’t like it, and reportedly warned her husband that it had to stop.
It was reported back then that Priyanka was in a 5 year relationship with Harman Baweja. They have done two movies together, ‘Love Story 2050’ and ‘What’s your Rashee’, both of which were massive flops. The movie came out in 2008 when Chopra was 26 and was dating Harman who was nearly her age. The two seemed to be quite serious but it was rumoured that they broke up because of Shahid Kapoor.
In 2009, Shahid and Priyanka did a movie together ‘Kaminey’. According to reports, the on screen pair grew close and seemed to be dating each other. Shahid had suffered fresh wounds from his break up with Kareena Kapoor found solace in PeeCee. They never admitted to it but when the two were cornered on Karan Johar’s show Koffee with Karan their secret was out.
Shah Rukh Khan
Priyanka and Shah Rukh Khan go back to her Miss India days when she was asked a question on marriage by the superstar himself. They came together for Don 2 in 2011. PeeCee has time and again mentioned that she is a huge fan of SRK who is 18 years older than her. But the news was fired up when Chopra mentioned her favourite jacket given by her ex-boyfriend in a show called Dirty Laundry. As per reports it belonged to King Khan.
Coming to her recent man of the moment, Nick Jonas is in his twenties and the two are going quite strong. PEOPLE magazine quoted Priyanka Chopra that she is getting to know Nick. “We’re getting to know each other and I think it was a great experience for him,” Priyanka told the magazine. Talking about Nick’s trip with her to India, she added, “That’s what he said. I think he really enjoyed it. It was really beautiful. He had a great time.” You see, age is just a number!
On the work front, Priyanka will be next seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat alongside Salman Khan and Disha Patani.
