Actor Priyanka Chopra and filmmaker Karan Johar, who recently met on the sets of a dance reality show, where Johar was the judge, vehemently ­protested when someone made fun of their industry colleague, actor Alia Bhatt. Apparently, when Johar misunderstood the concept of a dance act, Chopra pulled his leg by calling it his “blonde moment”, and said he was the Paris Hilton of India. To this, someone drew a comparison with Alia, when both PeeCee and KJo protested.

“Karan misunderstood the concept of contestant Shakti Mohan’s ­performance which was about insects being ­affected due to pollution. He thought it was ­related to pest control.To this, Priyanka took a fun dig at him, saying, ‘This is our Indian Paris Hilton!’

Johar, who had launched Alia with Student of The Year in 2011, too, instantly quipped, “I love Alia too, her jokes are hilarious!”
