Priyanka’s guide to losing your Valentine in 7 ways!

first_imgPriyanka ChopraIn Bollywood’s most ‘lethal’ Valentines Day celebration, actress Priyanka Chopra enumerated seven ways to lose one’s Valentine.”There are seven ways to lose your Valentine, in this box,” Priyanka said, after unveiling the press kit, which contained a rope, a syringe, a knife, a bottle of ‘poison’, a sachet of ‘potassium cyanide’, an ice pick and a strip of Vigora tablets, used for treating male erectile dysfunction.”This is a gift, which you, as a boyfriend, can give your girlfriend, if you want to,” the sultry actress, who had donned 12 different looks in ‘Whats Your Rashee’, said, at a promotional event for Vishal Bhardwaj’s 7 Khoon Maaf, at a suburban luxury hotel last night.7 Khoon Maaf is based on Ruskin Bond’s short story Susanna’s Seven Husbands and releases on Februray 18, 2011. Priyanka Chopra essays Susanna who slays seven of her husbands one by one, in her never-ending quest to find love.”This is such a romantic gift we have given you. Now, who does that,” Priyanka cooed, asking media persons not to open the box immediately.It was but natural that when the occasion was Valentines Day and it was Priyanka taking the queries, media was eager to know about her ‘friendship’ with co-actor Shahid Kapoor. Asked about Shahid , Priyanka, sporting a mischievous grin, quipped: “What about him?….my date is with you.”It was then left to Bhardwaj to ‘certify’ the relationship when he said Bollywood has seen many hit pairs like Raj Kapoor-Nargis, Amitabh Bachchan-Rekha and Shahid Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra. This sent Priyanka into peals of laughter.advertisementlast_img read more
