The Bollywood A-listers turned up at ace photographer Dabboo Ratnani's event, but looked uncomfortable in each other's presence. Instead of exchanging pleasantries, the duo chose to avoid each other.
The strained relationship between Priyanka and Shahrukh is known to all, after the superstar's wife Gauri stepped in when rumours of her husband and Priyanka's affair were rife during "Don 2."
Shahrukh and Priyanka were close buddies once and the actress was seen blushing in the superstar's presence in one of the episodes of talk show "Koffee with Karan."
Even though the friendship turned sour, the "Chennai Express" actor was also seen consoling the actress last year when her father passed away. Shahrukh gave Priyanka a shoulder to cry on in the presence of the media and film fraternity, but Gauri was nowhere to be seen.
On 6 January during the Filmfare press conference, Priyanka was asked if she was comfortable romancing Shahrukh onscreen. "I can romance anybody, why just him... That is my job," the diva retorted, according to PTI.
Priyanka will host the awards ceremony for the first time with her "Barfi!" co-star Ranbir Kapoor. "Shah Rukh, Saif, Ranbir, Imran, so many people have hosted the show and they have always set the standard. So, it becomes little scary and there is a pressure. Logically, the pressure applies on Ranbir. But I have been working very hard to make sure it will be lot of fun," she said, adding that actress Vidya Balan would be the ideal co-host. "I think Vidya is spontaneous and she is lot of fun," she added.
