Priyanka Chopra’s mother accused the Bollywood actor’s ex-manager Prakash Jaju of lying about her daughter's 'suicide' attempts.

Madhu Chopra took to Twitter to dismiss Jaju’s claims as ‘fabrication’.

Priyanka 'tried to commit suicide,' says ex-manager

Jaju had earlier tweeted, “PC may look very strong now but she was also very vulnerable in struggling days, tried to commit suicide 2-3 times but I managed to stop her.”

Madhu chimed in that Prakash's own parents had to ask Priyanka for forgiveness for their son's antics. The two had ended their professional relationship on a rough note when PeeCee abruptly terminated Prakash’s contract, causing him to file a criminal lawsuit against the actor in Mumbai court.


Following the tragic death of Bigg Boss star Pratyusha Banerjee, Prakash took to Twitter to speak about the struggles experienced by stars during the start of their careers. Using Priyanka as an example, he claimed that the actor and her alleged former boyfriend, Aseem Merchant, had frequent fights due to which PeeCee would cry and call Prakash during the middle of the night.

Apparently, after one of her fights with Aseem, Priyanka drove to Mumbai’s Vasai area to commit suicide, but Prakash managed to convince her out of it.

He then went on to tweet that due to Priyanka’s close bond with Aseem’s mother, her death took a toll on the actor who tried to jump off the building after his mother’s death in 2002. Prakash claimed that Priyanka was then tied to a chair until grills were fitted on all the windows of her apartment.
