She is set to launch her debut international album, and Priyanka Chopra is already hobnobbing with global music icons. After multiple meetings with Lady Gaga, the Kaminey (2009) star is apparently going to “spend quality time” with Katy Perry in Chennai.
For the uninitiated, Priyanka and Katy will be a part of the Indian Premier League’s opening ceremony on April 3. While Priyanka’s performance is the opening act, Katy will bring the curtains down on the star-studded event.
Insiders from Taj Hotel — where the two will be staying — inform that arrangements are being made for an elaborate, but informal meeting between Priyanka and Katy. “While the final itinerary is being kept a complete secret, Taj officials have been informed that the exact details of their meeting and required arrangements will be given only a day in advance,” says an insider. “Priyanka is expected to discuss her album and experience as a singer with Katy. Of course, Katy’s insights will come in handy,” says an insider close to the actor.
Although details are being kept under wraps, the meeting is scheduled to take place either a day before or after the ‘Opening IPL Nite’. “They can’t meet on that day, since both will be busy with their acts. And since they don’t want a meet-and-greet kind of encounter, it will happen either over lunch or dinner,” adds the insider.
Although Priyanka remained unavailable for comment, her spokesperson says, “It’s too early to talk about the meeting as things are still being worked out. But since Priyanka is opening the IPL night, she will be in Chennai for a couple of days. As for meeting with Katy, an official announcement will be made soon.”
