Did Priyanka Chopra just take a jibe at the Katrina Kaif-Ranbir Kapoor separation?
The actress was speaking about the the Global Citizen Festival’s maiden outing in India.
Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra could possibly have taken a sensational dig at contemporaries Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif.
The actress was speaking at the Global Citizen Festival about the event’s maiden outing in India, with a gig to be headlined by Coldplay.
Coldplay’s vocalist Chris Martin, who came on-stage casually dressed, spoke briefly about it and took out a piece of paper to read out the names of Bollywood A-listers like Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, who’d be performing at the show as well.
While at it, Chris unintentionally read Katrina’s name as Katrina Kaif Kapoor and innocuously went on with his list until a very amused PeeCee let out a subtle ‘Oh,’ startling Chris.
When Chris enquires if he had mispronounced a name, a sly Priyanka goes on to say, ‘No. It was close, it was close,’ possibly hinting at Kat’s separation from Ranbir.
Well, we see what you did there, Priyanka, we sure do!
