Shah Rukh Khan is one of the hosts of this year’s IIFA alongside Shahid Kapoor, and we hear that King Khan specially requested a change in their script to omit Priyanka Chopra‘s name from one of their jokes.
Apparently, Shah Rukh has a monologue in which he talks about Sasha’s past and all those ladies that he has been linked up with. The list, which includes Kareena Kapoor and Vidya Balan, also made mention of Priyanka. But after reading the rough draft, Shah Rukh suggested that they avoid using Priyanka’s name given the fact that she wasn’t attending the event and had only recently suffered great personal loss. Quite a sweet move on his part, don’t you think?
Psst, remember when SRK and Shahid hosted together before? SRK definitely brought up the PC angle that time :)
