Priyanka Chopra Jonas, not only dropped ‘Chopra Jonas’ from her Twitter and Instagram profiles but soon going to render a joint statement on their separation. From the past few months, there are trust issues between the couple and with the mutual agreement they are now staying separate.
The actress has dropped both surnames – Chopra and Jonas, which husband Nick’s last name – though it is the absence of the latter that is causing a commotion on social media. “And she’s here,” Priyanka captioned her Matrix first look – details of the role she’s been cast in have not been revealed.
The Internet, when it noticed that Priyanka Chopra’s Instagram now reads just Priyanka, was quick to invoke actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu whose own name change to the initial S proved a harbinger of doom – soon after, she and husband Naga Chaitanya announced they were ending their marriage.
When Afternoon Voice spoke to Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu she said, “People should stop speculating about Nick and Priyanka. It’s all rubbish, don’t spread rumours.” She further stated, “Priyanka has dropped both surnames for her own reasons but the media should stop publishing misleading stories.”
The film industry sources and former aide of Priyanka Chopra said “from past few months things are not well with the couple, there are a lot of trust issues. They tried to pretend as if all is well but that did not work for them”. Meanwhile, they are staying separate and trying to either work or break the relationship. Both are taking time to draw conclusions.”
Another Bollywood source close to Priyanka said, “This is a publicity stunt to get attention for her upcoming poster featuring her character from The Matrix Resurrections – the hotly anticipated fourth film in the iconic Keanu Reeves series. Priyanka and Nick have been going through such rumours for a very long time, but there is no such news.”
