Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan Couch has seen many Bollywood celebs on the show and has revealed some juicy things about his personal and professional life. One actress who spoke her heart out on the show was Priyanka Chopra. ‘Desi Girl’ has appeared in almost every season of the show hosted by KJo (but not this season).
During her appearance in the sixth episode of Koffee With Karan Season 4 – Deepika Padukone, the Baywatch actress opened up about her performance in Barfi and how she felt when she won the ‘Best Actress’ award for it. For those who don’t know, the actress lost the coveted Filmfare Award to Vidya Balan for her performance in Kahaani.
In Koffee With Karan Season 4, while interacting with Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, Karan Johar saw Priyanka offering a small prayer while she was announcing the Best Actress nominees on stage. The host, however, said that once Vidya Balan’s name was announced as the winner, her behavior completely changed. Replying to him, the Bajira Mastani actress said that she was hurt.
Telling Karan how she felt after losing the award, Priyanka Chopra said, “This film was very special for me. And I knew I wasn’t getting this (the prize) at first, (but) I sat through it. My dad actually told me. He was ill, he was in the hospital at that time. I told him, ‘I am going for Filmfare. And he was like, ‘Good luck! Your performance was amazing.'”
She continued, “And when I got there… you know, you hear. So, I find out, and I remember calling her and saying, ‘I’m not going to win this. Why should I stay? should?’ And he said, ‘Because you’re a good player. Stay tuned, and clap for someone else. It’s okay.’ So, I decided I would. And yes, it hurt me. That year, in particular, it did.”
Now he is the true player – or in this case the player, the ship.
On the professional front, Priyanka Chopra has a full plate. The actress – who recently wrapped up shooting for her first web series Citadel, will also be seen in It’s All Coming Back to Me and Zee Le Zara alongside Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt.
