It seems this recent phenomenon has reached the US as well. Yes, if reports are to be believed, our own favorite Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are about to get divorced. The spread of rumors of the lovely couple getting divorced started as soon as Piggy Chops removed ‘Chopra Jonas’ from her Instagram handle, leaving just her first name, Priyanka.
Well, there is nothing new in celebrity couples dating one another, falling in love, getting married, and eventually after a few years, getting divorced. Priyanka, before falling in love with Singer Nick Jonas and tying the wedding knot in a lavish three-day wedding at Jodhpur, dated some of the A-listers in Bollywood.

The lovely chemistry of the onscreen pair was widely loved by movie watchers. Reports of closeness between Akshay and Priyanka on film sets started to spread like a wildfire prompting Akshay’s wife Twinkle to bar him from working with Priyanka again. One of the major reasons for Akshay and Priyanka’s dating rumor was also because of the fact that they have together filmed some of Bollywood’s Steamiest Scenes and Songs.
2. Shah Rukh Khan
This was indeed shocking for fans as well as insiders of Bollywood as Shah Rukh Khan is known as a committed and doting husband. If rumors are anything to go by, then Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan were in a very serious affair. The closeness between PC and Badshah of Bollywood began on the sets of Don 2 and it was the time during which was madly in love with SRK. Many Reports also suggested that the couple had a secret Nikah Nama in a foreign country.
But, like Twinkle, Gauri entered the picture and since then Shah Rukh has not worked with Priyanka again. Although the affair was never confirmed by either of the two, Priyanka on several occasions has talked about an ex that she ‘looks up to’ and many feel that it is none other than Shah Rukh that she is talking about. Once, they were seen together late at night, at around 3 AM. They were even interrogated about it, and they dodged the question by saying that they were just doing the rehearsals. It is also reported that just like Twinkle, Gauri Khan also entered the picture and asked Karan Johar, Farah Khan, and Sajid Khan to boycott Priyanka and this is the sole reason Priyanka was forced to shift to the USA. However, SRK and Priyanka, both have denied these rumors in several interviews.
3. Shahid Kapoor

Allegedly, when Shahid Kapoor opened the door he was wearing a boxer. The whole incident made big news in the media at the time as know body previously had any clue about their dating each other. They have never officially confessed their relationship and it is possible that maybe they are just good friends.
Priyanka herself revealed “Yes, Shahid was there at my apartment when it (the income tax raids) happened. He lives just three minutes away from my home and it was but natural for me to give him a call when all that was happening. My mother was also supposed to be there but she couldn’t make it. So I gave him a call and he rushed to my apartment just as he was (reportedly in shorts).”
Insiders from Bollywood say that the two started to develop a close relationship while they were working for the movies Kaminey and Teri Meri Kahaani but both of them failed to make a mark at the box office.
