Expressing her disappointment over such allegations, Neelam wrote on twitter, “Don't know how to react to a certain article that has come out today, claiming that I am responsible for starting certain rumours. I'm shocked and hurt with these allegations!! This is the first time in the whole of my career I have been dragged into a controversy.. Not fair at all!! Gauri and Sharukh happen to be my dear friends and will continue to be so.. Would never say anythin derogatory about them(sic)."
Earlier reports suggested that Priyanka had apparently learnt that all the rumours about her love affair with Shahrukh Khan was actually spread by yesteryear actress Neelam Kothari, who is also a good friend of Gauri. Knowing this, PC lashed back at Neelam after which the fight became ugly.
But Neelam refuted such rumours and said she never had any kind of fight with Priyanka Chopra. “As for Priyanka Chopra... No we have never had a fight.. Get your facts right people!!(sic)."
