Priyanka Chopra: Why So Non-Commital About Attending Royal Wedding?



Is Priyanka Chopra  attending the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? Not that anyone really cares.  But one wonders what  is the point of such  unnecessary and self-important  mystery being created  about two celebrity marriage in May, one in India the  other in England.

That  Sonam  Kapoor is getting married to her boyfriend Anand Ahuja on May 7 & 8 is  known to her close friends. But they’ve all been told not to talk about it. “Almost like  an NDA,” whispered  a friend  of the Kapoors.

Why??? To avoid the paparazzi? But wouldn’t they get  to know anyway  on  the day that it  actually happens. And  how many of the invitees would actually remain totally mum  till  ‘D’ day?

 Better to come out with the  wedding plans, don’t you think , Sonam.? Even at the  trailer release  of  her  new film ironically entitledVeere Di Wedding (talk about wedding planners) Sonam revealed  that she will reveal  marriage  plans in  “good time”.

Like maybe after the first marriage anniversary?

The secrecy around the royal wedding is more understandable, though our curiosity  about whether  Priyanka Chopra is  attending  or not  is completely baffling. How does it matter to the  fate  of  the nation whether  she  is  invited  or not?

On the  Tonight Show with popular American host Jimmy Fallon (she was on his show for the  forth time in two years…Jimmy,  there are  other Indians like Anupam Kher and  Irrfan who are doing good in the West)  Priyanka again  played the mystery card on her attendance/non-attendance   of the royal wedding.

When Jimmy asked  her  about it,she dodged the  question saying she was “scammed” into talking about it to the media.

Really? Like how? Did the press ask her trick question about the Meghan Markle marriage? Whatever  the curiosity  about her participation in the wedding  it comes  from Ms Chopra’s gushing  confession of her  jigri dosti with Ms Markle.

Even on the Jimmy Fallon Show Priyanka said, “Forget attending(the wedding) or not, I’m very happy for my friend.”

She then revealed she met Ms Markle at a dinner hosted  by Elle  magazine. “Megan  and I got along very well.”

So  is that a yes or a no? Or just a maybe.To keep the curiosity alive until D day. Many times  our celebrities  from showbiz are known to fuel the  curiosity about speculative talk, while pretending to be  be  annoyed/offended by it.
