Priyanka Chopra Down With Allergy & Food Poisoning
Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is once again in the limelight, but this time the cause is not a good one. The actress is suffering from a bout of allergy and food poisoning.
Priyanka says, “I had to shoot this scene on a bale of hay for a reality show that had contestants sweating it out in a slum. I was supposed to jump on top of the hay and roll over it. It was then that I started feeling very uncomfortable.”
As soon as she reached home, she found that the allergy had aggravated. The food poisoning which she was already experiencing also worsened. “It happened due to junk food and I have to admit it was me who messed around with my (digestive) system. The allergic reaction to the dust is settling down and I will be getting back on the sets in two more days,” Priyanka said.
But the channel for which Priyanka jumped on the hay have mentioned that she did it on her won will. “We never knew that she has such a horrible allergy to dust and neither did she. When she started shooting, one of the unit boys noticed her eyes had become blood-shot. Then she started sneezing violently. We realised something had gone wrong. But we quickly moved ahead with the shoot but her condition was really bad by the time we finished the shoot in the slum. We have apologised to her for this incident,” a channel official says.
But Priyanka says she herself did not know about this. “It`s a new discovery for me. My dad tells me I have ruined his reputation because he is a doctor. But I told him that I am also an army officer`s daughter (Dr Ashok Chopra was an army doctor) and this is only a phase. I am not a delicate darling -- I am strong enough. I`ll now work towards restoring my health. I can`t afford to fall sick so much.”
