In a shocking revelation, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has accepted that actor Shahid Kapoor was at her Mumbai apartment when the Income Tax department conducted an early morning raid at her home. Speaking at the 7 Khoon Maaf press-con, Priyanka said, “Yes I did call him. Shahid lives only 3 minutes away from my home and so when the raid happened, I had no one else to call because my mother was not at home that day either. He was the only person who could come….”
But Priyanka also came down heavily on the media for their allegedly “erroneous” reporting on the IT raid. “It’s shocking for me to discover that unsubstantiated news is being put up as the reality on the front page. I have never experienced anything like this before in my career. It (the media’s reporting) has deeply hurt and affected me,” said an emotional Priyanka.
As far as the alleged discovery of Rs. 6 crore (Rs. 60 million) in cash at her home is concerned, Priyanka clarified, “I have never seen so much cash in my life. People say that the biggest stars are the ones to be raided by the Income Tax department. Hence, I flatter myself. I am glad that I am in the highest taxpayers’ list.”
Trust Priyanka Chopra to bounce back when things are not looking so good!
