SHAHRUKH KHAN and PRIYANKA CHOPRA
Former Miss World and now top Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra may be having a massive fan following of her own, but when asked just a month or so back (in a leading film magazine) about who she is a fan of, pat came the reply, ''Shahrukh Khan''. Says Priyanka, ''I have always been and will always be a fan of Shah Rukh Khan. I admire a lot of people but true blue, going weak in the knees type of fan I am only of SRK!''
Since Priyanka has worked with almost all the top Bollywood heroes from Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan to Sunny Deol, it was only surprising that the (boringly!) diplomatic Piggy Chops took SRK's name without thinking of the consequences.
In fact during another recent interview she reiterated her strong feelings for her DON-THE CHASE BEGINS co-star by recounting her first meeting with SRK - ''I have been a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan since I was six. During Miss India 2000, he was one of the judges who asked me a question. I got a chance to meet him backstage and managed to say, ''Hello.'' When he heard that I sing, he asked me to do so. I still don't remember what I sang. I will always admire Shah Rukh.''
