About a decade ago, Priyanka Chopra was in the news for the wrong reason when she got involved in an ugly spot with a flight attendant. The two verbally assaulted and abused and threatened to arrest each other.
The passenger, a cardiologist of Indian descent, accused him of endangering the lives of others by talking on the phone while the plane was landing. “I told Priyanka Chopra that she risked the lives of her fellow passengers. But she started abusing me,” Dr Fayaz Shawl told Hindustan Times. Dr Shoal, accompanied by high-profile patients like Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom and former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif, was traveling in first class on a flight from Mumbai to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
The Bajirao Mastani actress, however, said that she did not break any rules and called the fellow passenger attentive.
“He was the attention seeker who started filming me on his phone despite my objections. He got drunk and called his friend Sheikh of Dubai and threatened to get me in trouble. I challenged him for not breaking any rules. He later apologized,” Priyanka replied. .
