The 18th IIFA Awards kickstarted on Friday in New York and, B-town stars such as Salman Khan, Varun Dhawan, Sushant Singh Rajput, Alia Bhatt and others rocked the gala. However, Priyanka Chopra skipped the mega event this year. The Baywatch actress flew from NY to Mumbai on Thursday. While it was said that PeeCee missed IIFA to celebrate her birthday with family, the actress was spotted at an event in Mumbai. Priyanka attended the press conference of her Marathi production venture Kay Re Rascala yesterday with the cast and crew of the film. Doting mother Madhu Chopra and brother Siddharth Chopra were also present at the event.

Talking about skipping IIFA 2017, Priyanka Chopra said, ““Unfortunately IIFA and my birthday coincided. I do not get much time to spend with my brother and mum. So yes, I deserve this holiday.”

Piggy Chops, who is preparing for her third Hollywood venture Isn’t it Romantic, looked gorgeous in a black attire.The stunning neckpiece worked wonders and, the actress looked even more gorgeous.

Taking to her Instagram account the Desi girl shared an adorable family picture. “My mommy bestest! #WhoIsTheFavouriteChildThough? #SuchASweetMoment #MakingMemories@madhuchopra @siddharthchopra89”, the caption read.

The global icon Priyanka has been away from Bollywood films for a while now. The actress was last seen in Bajirao Mastani in 2015 and, her fans are eagerly waiting for her big Bollywood comeback. Amid such anticipation, some reports say that PeeCee will be next seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s venture. The film is a biopic based on the life of writer Amrita Pritam, the reports added.

The biopic is reportedly titled Gustakhiyaan and few Bollywood names such as Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan have been considered for the male lead. However, no official confirmation has been given by the makers.
