Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan have a history with the actress. Salman Khan cannot see eye to eye with PeeCee. His sister Arpita who reached Jodhpur on Friday afternoon did try to persuade Salman to accompany her for the wedding, but Salman refused to budge.
Ranveer Singh is Priyanka’s pal. But he’s busy with his own wedding reception in Mumbai. As for the other A-list leading men, Aamir Khan, Ajay Devgn and Ranbir Kapoor were never on her speed dial.
A friend of the actress who isn’t attending the wedding says, “PeeCee’s wedding will have a massive turn-out on Monday and Tuesday. But none of the major actors, or for that matter, actresses will show up for it.”
We have it from reliable sources that while three of Priyanka’s favourite directors — Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Vishal Bhardwaj and Rakesh Roshan — are expected in Jodhpur, an impressive turn-out of big actors doesn’t seem possible as of now.
According to a source, Priyanka has not really maintained a warm relationship with Bollywood during the past few years. “She has been busy projecting herself in the West as the desi face of India. In fact the turn-out in Jodhpur from America, courtesy her husband Nick Jonas, would be far more impressive,” the source feels.
We also hear that Akshay Kumar is heading for foreign shores on the eve of Priyanka Chopra’s wedding in Jodhpur ostensibly to attend a very close friend’s son’s wedding. Is it a coincidence or did he want to avoid awkward questions about his presence at PeeCee’s wedding? We’ll never know....
