While in attendance at the Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere of her The Sky Is Pink movie, Priyanka Chopra and the movie’s director, Shonali Bose chatted with ET. Among other things, the actress also talked about the story behind that Photoshopped VMAs picture of her and Nick Jonas that the actress shared on social media.
Priyanka explained that ‘I was sick that day, which is why I could not go to the VMAs. It was supposed to be a fun night where all 6 of us got together because we never get to do it that often. We have crazy schedules, and now that the boys are on tour, we meet as the 6 of us.’
While she could not make it, her husband was there alongside his brothers Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas as well as their wives, Sophie Turner and Danielle.
She went on to explain that ‘this was supposed to be the fun thing [we did together]. We had dinner planned after too, and then I was just really unwell. I think that Nick felt bad that he was there and I was unwell. I was watching from my couch at home and when they won, seeing his face I felt like, ‘Ugh.’ I should’ve been there, but I was so sick, and I saw it on his face.’
Priyanka really felt like she’d let her hubby down so she decided to fix it in her own unique way.
She grabbed the phone and edited that PDA pic, dishing to the news outlet that it’s one of the reasons why she loves technology.’
‘It does not matter if I was there or not. The pic makes it seem like I was and the internet would believe it.’
