She's known to be a warm and friendly person in public. But Priyanka Chopra can also be a no-nonsense girl. She will not tolerate any frivolous behaviour from her admirers. And that's exactly what one of her fans learnt, and in a hard way!
The actress was shooting with Shahid Kapoor by a lake near Aurangabad for her next film. "In between the shots, a man, who was on the other side, screamed out her name saying, 'Priyanka Chopra, I love you'," recalls the source, adding that the actress was neither amused nor amazed by the admirer's loud declaration.
The source, further adds: "She asked her security guard to call the man. Then, Priyanka admonished him for his loud declarations, saying he should be more courteous towards the stars he idolises." Predictably, the fan realised his mistake and apologized for his behaviour. "He asked for her autograph, which she gladly signed."
In another incident that echoed the thrill of fans at the prospect of seeing their screen idols up, close and personal, Priyanka actually rescued an Assistant Director who was caught in the middle of a huge crowd.
"A huge number of people had gathered to see the shoot and after a while, it seemed that they would soon close in on our team," informed the source.
"Priyanka wanted to go back to get the girl out from there before something untoward happened. A couple of crew members reasoned with her that the public was closing in because she was there, but she was more worried about the Assistant Director. Fortunately, Priyanka rushed out from there with the girl before the crowd became unmanageable," added the source.
Currently, the actress is said to be preparing for her trip to Switzerland. This time it's for her brother Siddharth, who is getting his Master's degree in catering and hotel management.
"Priyanka is fond of her brother and had promised him that she'd be there when he got his degree. So she's flying out today and will be back after a couple of days, to resume shooting for her new film with Hrithik Roshan."
