INSULTED: Priyanka Chopra holding the IIFA trophy.

Priyanka Chopra is furious that Ashutosh Gowarikar went on a public platform, and questioned her Best Actress award for Fashion at the IIFA ceremony in Macau, say the sources present at the awards.

Apparently, moments after Piggy Chops collected her award, and returned to her seat, Ashutosh went up to collect his award for the Best Director. The first thing he uttered after grabbing the mike was, “Priyanka I love you, but I don’t know how you got the award for the Best Actress when Aishwarya was also nominated in the same category for Jodha Akbar.”

A hush fell over the entire gathering when Ashu realised that he had gone too far. He added, “Maybe it is because you are very hard working and she is a natural.” When he realised that he had made the matters worse, he put the blame on Jaya Bachchan, who was standing besides him. He said, “Jayaji was just asking me the same thing.”

Priyanka looked as if she had been struck by lightning. She didn’t know whether to laugh or cry considering her own director was humiliating her in public. The actress, who is also the leading lady of his next film What’s Your Rashee was so upset with the director that she stayed away from the after-party at Abhi-Ash’s suite. The seething actress was overheard saying, “I don’t want to go there and see his face.”
