Bond or Superstar?
By Vipasha Sinha
Priyanka Chopra was fashionably late for her Tag Heuer event held here recently . But the fans were not complaining one bit. They got a photo session with the actor. The former Miss World and current Bollywood hottie, whose bikini avatar in ‘Dostana’ continues to vapourise hundreds of drooling fans at the theatres, was at the Park Sheraton Hotel to launch the Grand Carrera Calibre collection of Tag Heuer.
Ms.Chopra was quick to apologise to the waiting media and fans and lost time in waxing eloquent about watches. A perfect brand ambassador, she also spoke about Tag Heuer’s guest appearances in both Fashion and Dostana. “I have quiet a lot of Tags and as a brand I can relate myself to the watch. They are trendy and can easily blend with both Western and Indian wear.”
When asked if she would get back to Tamil cinema if she got an offer – the disastrous Vijay-starrer ‘Tamizhan’ was her first movie in fact – she replied: ” I love cinema, be it Tamil, Hindi or Punjabi. I had started my career in movies with Tamil cinema and will love to get back to it. If a good script comes my way, I would definitely go for it.”
Priyanaka also lost not opportunity in endearing herself to Tamil audiences. When asked whom she would pick, if she had a choice – Superstar Ranjinikanth or the angry Bond Daniel Craig, she said: “Daniel Craig is a great actor but acting with Rajinikanth is an opportunity in itself that no actor would want to miss.”
Priyanka was accompanied by Manish Sanwal, General Manager, LVMH Watch India Pvt Ltd and Ashok Doshi, Helvetica Swiss Watch Boutique. She distributed Special prizes were given to the lucky draw winners by Priyanka herself. As promised by Sanwal, the evening was made memorable for the Priyanka Chopra fans by opening the stage for photo sessions with her.
Grand Carrera Calibre costs Rs. 3.92 lacs with 68 diamonds studded in it and is inspired by the GT race cars.
