Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra's mother Madhu Chopra recently slammed the actress's former manager Prakash Jaju.

Prakash had tweeted, 'PC may look very strong now but she was also very vulnerable in struggling days, tried to commit suicide 2-3 times but I managed to stop her.'

Rebutting this claim,  the 33-year-old actress's mother wrote, 'That lying b****** spent time in jail...his old mother and father fell at Pc's feet begging forgiveness.'

Things between the Bajirao Mastani star and her former manager turned sour when she terminated his services.

Later, Prakash even filed a criminal suit against her, accusing that she had not cleared his dues.

However, Prakash ended up serving 67 days in jail after Priyanka's late father Ashok Chopra filed a complaint against him for violating his daughter's privacy.

Singer Bappi Lahiri is all set to release a new music video album on Bengali New Year's day.

The king of beats, who had set dance floors on fire with hit songs like Ramba Ho and Koi Yahan Aha Nache Nache in the 1980s through early 1990s, said the album would also be launched in Bangladesh.

Speaking to PTI on the sets of Phire Asar Gaan, a reality show where he has teamed up with pop singer Usha Uthup as a judge, Bappi said the lyrics were liked by Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

"As I mouthed the lyrics before a 60,000-strong audience in Dhaka recently, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina described the lines as 'amazing'," Bappi said.

The music director also reveled that he plans to send a short film Slum stars India, directed by him, to different festivals.

"It is my tribute to the slums which foster the spirit of fightback against odds among its residents."

"It shows the journey of every struggler with a humble beginning. I plan to send it to different film festivals," he added.
