Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu has called the actress’ former manager Prakash Jaju “a liar” after he claimed that her daughter tried committing suicide three times during her struggling days.
Jaju, who managed the actress from 2000-2004, posted on Twitter yesterday that one such incident was in 2002 after the death of Priyanka’s alleged former boyfriend Aseem Merchant’s mother.
The ex-manager said the 33-year-old “Quantico” star was extremely close to Merchant’s mother and did not take her demise well.
While Priyanka, who is in Los Angeles shooting for “Baywatch”, did not respond to the messages for her reaction, rebutting his claims, Madhu wrote on Twitter, “That lying b****** spent time in jail… His old mother and father fell at PC’s feet begging forgiveness.”
Things between the “Bajirao Mastani” star and Jaju turned sour when she terminated his services.
Later, he even filed a criminal suit against her, accusing that she has not cleared his dues.
Jaju, however, ended up serving 67 days in jail after Priyanka’s father, Ashok Chopra filed a complaint against him for interfering in his daughter’s privacy.
