Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra, who had been the brand ambassador of Nirav Modi’s jewellery line since early 2017, has now distanced herself from the disgraced jewellery designer.
“In light of recent allegations, Priyanka Chopra has chosen to terminate her contract with the Nirav Modi brand,” the actress’s spokesperson told a news agency.
Incidentally, when she had come on board as the brand ambassador, Priyanka had called their association “like a meeting of minds in many ways”.
When Nirav Modi’s alleged involvement in the Punjab National Bank fraud was first reported, there were rumours that Priyanka would be suing him. However, her spokesperson denied the reports and said that she was “seeking legal opinion on terminating her contract with the brand”, given the allegations of financial fraud.
Nirav Modi has been dominating headlines in the last few days, after it emerged that he allegedly committed fraud worth around Rs 11,400 crore.
