There have been rumors swirling about who the new man in Priyanka Chopra’s life is and one of the names that keeps coming up is Scottish hunkstar Gerard Butler. The two beautiful people met at the opening of the Atlantis hotel in Dubai and reportedly have stayed in touch since. In fact, the two have gotten to be such “good friends” that Gerard recently spent the day on the set of Priyanka’s new film What’s Your Rashee?.
Speaking to TOI Butler said about visiting India, “Every time I come to India, I feel that I haven’t spent enough time here. I love this country. It attracts you towards itself and you can never say no. Last year, I had come to India, and thankfully, no one got to know about it. I’d like to keep it that way this time too. I am planning to stay here till Priyanka’s done with her shoot. Then I have a few places in mind, like Rishikesh, Manali and some parts of Rajasthan, that I’d like to visit.”
He also revealed that he actually auditioned for a part in Lagaan, “I had auditioned for Lagaan, but I didn’t get the role.” Adding jokingly, “I guess they wanted to say that I was too good looking for the role. That I guess can be the only reason.”
Also visiting the set in Jaipur with Butler was Richard LaGravenese director of PS, I Love You. Both men were introduced to Ashutosh Gorwariker and got the chance to talk about Bollywood films. LaGravenese said, “I am enjoying this whole Indian movie shooting. It is an honour, and the director seems like a nice man.”
According to a source after the shoot was complete the two along with Priyanka and others from the film crew went on a sight seeing tour around the city.
Though Priyanka and Gerard maintain that they are just good friends we will have to wait and watch to see if there will be more news to come.
