AIRPORT DIARIES: ‘Asia’s Sexiest Woman’ Priyanka Chopra Takes Off Into The Night
MUMBAI: Barely had we at businessofcinema.com brought our lovely readers news of Priyanka Chopra arriving from Dubai; post a stage performance with her good friend Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, than we have scoured photos of the star taking off again!
This time, Priyanka took off for Marrakech in the dead of the night. This little inconvenient hour, however, did not stop our snap-happy photographers from spotting the lovely lady at Mumbai’s International airport last night.
Priyanka tweeted a little before, “Marrakech bound!!! Looking forward.. Heard so many great things lately.. Can’t wait to see ‘Barfi!’ with the team and everyone else in Morocco!”
Priyanka looked effortlessly chic in black boots, a pair of grey skinny tights, a black shirt and a floral printed scarf to keep out the minimal Mumbai winter chill. The stylish star turned recording artist (platinum selling, no less!) appeared to be slightly tired and weary due to her multiple B’town shooting and other assignments. Stars after all, have the most hectic schedules these days.
With all this zooming in and out of town, we really wonder how our Bollywood stars manage to look so fresh and fit on a daily, nay- hourly basis!
It is no surprise though, Priyanka has just bagged the ‘World’s Sexiest Asian Woman’ crown, in a survey. We hear, that Priyanka defeated reigning champion Kareena Kapoor and three-time winner Katrina Kaif to claim this throne.
Clearly overwhelmed the 30 year old said, “I’m hugely flattered. Who wouldn’t want to have a title like this bestowed on them! A big shout out to everyone who voted for me.”
Meanwhile, Priyanka has reportedly been roped in to essay the role of Olympic medalist Mary Kom in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s biopic about the boxer’s life. This is why the actress is keen to learn from the Olympic bronze medalist how to wear boxing gloves.
Priyanka tweeted on Tuesday, “Now off to my first meeting with the one and only Mary Kom! Dhan tana… Will make her teach me how to wear my boxing gloves.”
Buzz is that ace boxer Mary Kom might just make a special appearance in the film, as the opponent of the on-screen Mary Kom. The film will be directed by Omung Kumar and will go on the floors early next year.
