Not many former boyfriends would do what Harman Baweja did on Thursday evening when he headed for Priyanka Chopra’s wedding reception to wish her the very best.
Baweja was a devoted boyfriend to Priyanka for a good five years. In fact they were thinking of matrimony , when Priyanka decided to move on. But before that she was as close to the Baweja parivar as can be. In 2008 when Harman’s father producer HarryBaweja launched Harman as a leading man in Love Story 2050 the leading lady Kareena Kapoor opted out after shooting for a few days.
Priyanka generously stepped in as a last-minute replacement making space in her cluttered calendar.The relationship ended when Priyanka became involved with Shahid Kapoor.
And to now see him bravely make his way into Priyanka’s wedding reception on December 20 makes him the most graceful ex-boyfriend of 2018.
Says an eyewitness, “Everyone was surprised to see Harman there, knowing his history with Priyanka.He greeted the couple warmly spoke to them and then left.It was a gesture that won hearts that evening.”
Harman who has been unlucky in love , what with his relationship with Priyanka and thenBipasha Basu drawing to a cruel halt, has also been unlucky in his career. To top it all, his father producer Harry Baweja has been ill for a year .
We hope 2018 brings better luck for the own-in-the-dumps affable (Har)man. Incidentally both Harman and Imran Khan made their high-profile debut on the same Friday in 2008 with Love Story 2050 and Jaane Tu Yaa Jaane Na, respectively. Both went into oblivion.
