Reportedly in response to an article in Tuesday's Mumbai Mirror that has actor Priyanka Chopra's unnamed friends defending her position in the alleged affair with Shah Rukh Khan, filmmaker Karan Johar lashed out at her on Twitter. "Using their hired PR machinery and hiding behind so called "friends" to get news into tabloids is nothing but spineless and lame!!!
"Some people need to wake up and smell the KOFFEE!!! Get a reality check before its too late!!! Grow up!!! and dont mess with goodness....," he further added.
Priyanka Chopra's close friend had disclosed to the tabloid that a powerful producer-director who can make or break careers, has not been kind to Priyanka behind her back.
“At a recent party while he was feeding her cupcakes, she heard rumours of him bitching her out-all this is very hurtful,” a close associate of the actress told the tabloid.
The associate-cum-friend believes that a powerful clique of star wives is behind anti-Priyanka stories. “Priyanka has done nothing wrong. If these women are insecure about their relationships with their husbands, they should sort it out with them, at home. Why should they attack her?” Priyanka's close friend had told the tabloid.

Taran had tweeted: "Shahid's biggest opener, but also Shahid's biggest release in terms of print count & screens. Hence, numbers are below the mark. The business trends indicate a decline on weekdays."
