Hosting Live Video Chat With Priyanka Chopra For Facebook

Just wrapped up a Live Video Chat with Priyanka Chopra for Facebook. It was a first of its kind. I hosted the chat and man it was exhausting. The questions flew like lightening in fast forward and I was like gasping. Still. I guess we managed very well. I kept on asking my own questions to break the monotony. Stuff on Don 2, can we see her breaking the Rs 100 crore club with Don 2, has she contemplated taking legal action against speculative stories regularly doing the rounds in tabloids. Her fans poured in from New York, Chicago, Toronto, Pakistan, Dubai, Doha, Sweden, Germany, Jordan, Peru etc. Many wanted to be waved at, ached for flying kisses, proposed marriage, asked about her fitness regimen, what her dream man could be like etc.

Here's the page where you can watch the recorded version of this chat

It was fun. Did any of you watch it?

  3. I did catch the whole thing, it got stuck for me twice for a while but was good. Didnt ask her any Q's but one of my twitter friend asked to say me hi, I just realized it when you took my name and she actually said, Hi Anshula! hehe...unexpected things are always nice ;) My friend told me this later that it was her who said to say me hi. It was actually good, that in between you asked her your own Q's. Was lovely to see you both :)
    Regards! :)

  6. Ah man! I keep missing all the live chats! Been so busy writing essays but please do tons of live chats just before and after Christmas, I have holidays then.

    PS I really enjoyed your interview with Milan Luthria. It is nice that unlike the rest of the media, Bollywood Hugama gives so much attention to directors.
