They have shared a good friendship, even a rumoured relationship and back to being professionals. But one of the initial encounters of the two stars was rather awkward. When Priyanka Chopra contested and won the Miss India 2000 pageant, Shah Rukh Khan was on the judges’ panel and asked her a question.
In a throwback video from 2000 going viral online, SRK is seen posing a question to Priyanka who is on the stage as a contestant. “Hypothetically, if you were to marry one of the following, who will it be. An Indian sportsman, like Azhar bhai - who would take you all around the world, make your country proud and make you swell with pride. Or an artistic businessman with a difficult name to pronounce like Swaroski, who would bedeck you with jewels and necklaces and you would never have to buy a chandelier for your house ever again. Or a Hindi film star like me, who has nothing better to do than to give you complicated multiple-choice questions about a hypothetical wedding.”
Priyanka answers that she would go for an Indian sportsman.
Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra have worked together in Don.
