Priyanka Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra definitely looked good together in an ad they shot for Nirav Modi jewels last year. We wanted both of them to come together for yet another ad. Sadly, that is not going to happen as Priyanka has sued Nirav for non-payment of dues. The actress has accused Modi of not paying her for the said diamond ad campaign with Sidharth. The news came in after Modi was named in the Punjab National Bank’s Rs 11,000 crore fraud. PNB, which is India’s second largest state-owned bank discovered a fraud of approximately Rs 11,400 crore at a single Mumbai branch. The bank named three diamond firms who have benefited from the fraud — Diamonds R Us, Solar Exports, and Stellar Diamonds. According to the reports, Nirav and his family members are partners in all these companies.
A Mid-Day report states that Sidharth too is looking to cut ties with the diamantaire for he does not want to be harm his image by being associated with Nirav, who has been accused in this major fraud case. Reportedly, Sidharth was suppose to shoot for two more commercials, but looking at the current scenario, we are not sure if that is going to happen. There is no official statement by Priyanka and Sidharth on this yet. ALSO READ: Did Priyanka Chopra take a dig at US President Donald Trump in this video?
Other Bollywood celebrities who have been associated with Nirav include Lisa Haydon and Nimrat Kaur, who launched his store in New York City. Nirav’s creations have been worn by Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Chitrangada Singh, Shilpa Shetty in the past. Not just here, the man is quite popular in the West too as Hollywood actresses like Karlie Kloss, Kate Upton, Stella Maxwell and Olivia Munn have sported the jewelry designed by him at many red-carpet events.
