Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas threw a reception in Mumbai recently on December 20 for the film fraternity friends of the actress, with one more held for media personnel. A lot of big names and pretty much everyone turned up for the big night. However, a few big stars from the film industry were not seen at the occasion. Take a look at who they are and what are their reasons.
Starting with Shah Rukh Khan, the actor was apparently busy hosting a special screening of Zero for his team in Mannat. His wife Gauri Khan was also playing host for this special gathering, hence he could not attend the reception. As for Aamir Khan, it turns out that the actor is busy promoting his film Thugs of Hindostan in China, which is one of his biggest markets. It also turned out that one such event at a university was cancelled.
Two other stars who were a no-show were Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn. The 2.0 actor did not turn up because he is in vacation mode and is spending his holidays bonding with son Aarav. As for Ajay, well he is not much of a party goer in general and keeps to himself outside of films, so this one is pretty obvious. Although his wife Kajol did attend the big night.
Well, one star who made a blink and miss appearance was Salman Khan. Dressed in a navy blue blazer and matching pants, he made a very brief appearance at the do and did not spend much time there. What was surprising though was the fact that he did attend, for he was the only superstar missing from Ranveer and Deepika's reception which was held last month. However, the simple explanation for that is that he was probably busy working on Bharat and wrapped a schedule recently to take a break.
