Manish Malhotra’s couture fashion show, which marks 13 years of the designer’s label, had a bevy of celebrities had a bevy of celebrities such as Janhvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khatter, Sara Ali Khan, Iulia Vantur, Mouni Roy, Manushi Chhillar and Athiya Shetty among others in attendance.
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif turned showstoppers for Manish’s show that took place at JW Marriot, Juhu, and looked every bit of royal in bridal outfits.
However, something transpired right before the stars walked the ramp.
SpotboyE.com has it that while Manish was guiding Salman and Katrina about the flow of the show, Priyanka Chopra’s mother, Madhu Chopra, made an appearance to meet the designer. However, Salman and Chopra didn’t exchange pleasantries.
Says a source, “Madhu Chopra reached the venue at 9.30 pm and went backstage to congratulate Manish for his show. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif were right there prepping for their impending walk. However, the moment the superstar saw Chopra approach, he turned away and began talking to the actress. In fact, even Katrina didn’t acknowledge her presence.”
Adds the source, “Manish was glad that Madhu Chopra could make it and requested her to be seated in the front row. She proceeded to the auditorium soon after.”
You may recall, a few days ago, Bharat’s director, Ali Abbas Zaffar revealed that Priyanka has walked out of the project. The director stated that the actress has opted out owing to a very special reason and the team is happy for her decision.

Post that, Katrina came to the team’s rescue and replaced Priyanka. While the makers called PeeCee’s move ‘unprofessional’, Salim Khan, in an exclusive interview with SpotboyE.com, seemed unfazed by her exit and had said, "Koi bhi aa jayega uski (Priyanka's) jagah par." He even clarified that Salman is not upset with the actress.
Well, from the superstar’s royal ignore, doesn’t seem like all is well.
Interestingly, Ms Chopra, who is rather media friendly and patiently answers their questions, did not stop to give them bytes this time around? Was she fearing questions on Priyanka’s exit from Bharat or the global icon’s wedding to Nick Jonas?
