12 Celebrities who made news: Priyanka Chopra

There was seldom a day which passed by without these celebs hogging the limelight. Here’s what they did

Priyanka Chopra has had a tumultuous year. Not too long ago PC was on ‘Koffee with Karan’ with her rumoured beau Shahid Kapoor blushing at the mere mention of King Khan’s name and before we knew it, she was being shunned by Bollywood’s famous coterie of star wives and their very influential friends for her alleged fling with SRK. Social media was abuzz with reports of the online spat between KJo and Piggy Chops. However, she made an inconspicuous appearance at Karan’s big birthday bash post the Twitter spar.

Her choice of films had also come under scrutiny, while Hrithik and Sanjay Dutt walked away with the accolades for ‘Agneepath,’ Priyanka’s ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ with Shahid failed to impress. PC however, bounced back with a heartwarming performance as an autistic girl in Anurag Basu’s ‘Barfi’.
Priyanka released her debut single 'In My City' in September this year and the sales reportedly crossed 100,000 mark within a week of its release. The 30-year-old actor was amazed at its success. Looks like turbulent times are over for the diva.
