Did you know Hollywood star Gerard Butler had once proposed to Priyanka Chopra for marriage but she rejected it? Yes, you read that right! The superstar had visited India in 2009 and the ‘Desi Girl’ had organised a party in his honour at her Mumbai home.
A source had told TOI, “Of course, the party was for Gerard who was completely besotted by Priyanka and kept proposing to her every half hour. It’s become a standing joke rather a ‘kneeling’ joke between them. ‘Will you marry me?’ he knelt and said every half hour while she would burst into laughter. She’s clearly not interested in being Mrs Butler.”
Later, in 2012, Gerard had told IANS, “Last year, Priyanka was here in the US and I was going out of town to a wedding. I stay in Malibu and she was coming to party at Malibu and I couldn’t meet. I was even thinking of missing the plane and going and saying hello because I hadn’t seen her in a long time. But we are in touch all the time.”
Elaborating further, the actor had concluded by saying, “I am still single because I am waiting for Priyanka Chopra.”
Priyanka is now happily married to American singer-actor Nick Jonas. The couple recently welcomed their first child via surrogacy.
