Recently, Priyanka Chopra Jonas stirred up social media with her criticism of Bollywood. The actress recently discussed moving to the West while on a publicity blitz for her upcoming programme Citadel. The actress admitted during the show that she was being "pushed to the corner." In addition to raising many eyebrows, PeeCee's disclosure was backed by a large portion of the film community. Kangana Ranaut dragged Karan Johar, accusing him of supposedly barring the actress from Bollywood, while others praised her for her bravery.
Many people wondered why KJo was included in the controversy, so we chose to look further and read some previous accusations and allegations. Few people are aware, but there have been reports that the director tried to have the actress blacklisted in the business. To help you understand the debate better, scroll down as we break it down into its component parts.

When Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan's alleged romance was at its height in 2012, Gauri Khan took every action at her disposal to keep the world figure separate from the superstar. Gauri, Karan Johar's closest friend, reportedly told the director about it, and the two allegedly attempted to "push Priyanka out of the way." Furthermore, Peecee even made everyone look when she planted a kiss on SRK's face at a party.
Later, Priyanka Chopra's close friend revealed the incident to Mumbai Mirror, saying, “At a recent party, while he (Karan) was feeding her cupcakes, she heard rumours of him b*tching her out-all this is very hurtful. Priyanka has done nothing wrong. If these women are insecure about their relationships with their husbands, they should sort it out with them, at home. Why should they attack her?”
Karan Johar, however, reacted swiftly to Priyanka Chopra's close friend's indirect remark. He tweeted without mentioning any names, “Using their hired PR machinery and hiding behind so called ‘friends’ to get news into tabloids is nothing but spineless and lame,” he wrote. “Some people need to wake up and smell the KOFFEE!!! Get a reality check before it’s too late!!! Grow up!!! and don’t mess with goodness….” he said further.
Additionally, it is said that Karan Johar played the role of the good and responsible man and resolved the conflict between the three. Later, when Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan split up, PCJ allegedly decided to relocate to Hollywood.
Anjula Achariahad, Priyanka Chopra's foreign manager, made shocking accusations against Bollywood once more in 2021. When interviewed, she had stated, “I remember when I first signed Priyanka, there were a lot of people, particularly in India who were so negative. I was at Manish Goel’s house at dinner with some prominent people from…I wouldn’t say Bollywood, they hate that word…the Hindi film industry, and they were just so negative about her. They were like ‘she’s never gonna work, I don’t know why you are wasting your time blah blah…”

“I remember feeling really hurt at the time, ‘am I wasting my time?’ But this is where self-belief comes in. It seemed like a crazy dream right? To bring somebody from India to Hollywood but gotta tell you, when I look into Priyanka’s eyes… you just believe. And I think Priyanka was just undeniable. And I think she is a disruptor and I believe in her talent. I just had more belief in myself than what those people were telling me,” said Anjula.
In 2018, Priyanka Chopra Jonas allegedly made the decision to put the past behind her and move forward. On KJo's talk show Koffee With Karan, where she appeared with Kareena Kapoor Khan, the actress and producer couple shared a kiss, made up, and reunited.
