Priyanka Chopra is a global icon and an acclaimed Bollywood actress, who has also been honored with a National Award. However, she has been in the news, not just for her acting chops, but also for her past relationships. She is now happily married to Nick Jonas and in her recently released memoir ‘Unfinished’, she, for the first time, speaks up about her first boyfriend.
Priyanka Chopra had moved to the USA for her education in her teens. She then relocated to Indianapolis, this is when she was in her ninth grade and this is also when she started dating a boy in her school whom she has referred to as Bob (she has hidden his real name to protect his identity).
Bob was in the tenth grade, Priyanka Chopra made sure she romanced only inside the school as she was then living with her aunt, Kiran Masi, who had a strict no-dating policy. But somehow Priyanka Chopra called Bob home as Masi was away at work. Both were watching TV and holding hands when the song ‘I’ll Make Love To You’ by Boyz II Men began to play.
Here, she narrates, “Bob inched towards me. I turned to look at him, wondering if it would be that moment – my first kiss…” Sadly, before both could kiss, Priyanka heard her aunt had returned home and was coming up by the staircase to her room. With no other choice, she made Bob hide in the closet.
Finally, Kiran Masi entered her room. Priyanka Chopra sat on her bed with her biology book open, pretending to be studying. It seems Bob’s cologne gave them away. She demanded that Priyanka should open the closet. She had to open it anyways and she was caught, they were told to stay away.
However, Priyanka Chopra says that her feelings for Bob remained unchanged and they began to write letters and e-mails to each other until she found out he was dating her best friend now, so she said goodbye to Bob.
