Being a pageant winner has its own benefits. Recently at a press conference Priyanka Chopra was confronted with a persistent journalist who wanted her to say something that would bring the name Shah Rukh Khan to her lips. The bizarre question went something like, how King Khan is always late for press conferences and given Priyanka Chopra too had reached late for the event, was she trying to be a super star herself? Priyanka exclaimed that she was stuck at her shoot and couldn’t be excused, and hence the delay. And that she isn’t intending to make it a habit to come late for events.
When the journalist persistently tried asking her if she would like to host award functions with Shah Rukh, if she thought he was the best host and more, Priyanka finally smiled at him and declared, “It is futile looking for a scoop. I am not going to give you the pleasure of hearing whatever it is that you want to hear from me. So it is best that you desist because I will keep on dodging these questions with my smile right in place!” That did shut him up for good.
