While it is common for our B-Towners to be mobbed by fans during their promotional rounds across the country, Priyanka Chopra was shocked to find a similar response in Canada too. The actress was in Montreal to participate in a popular talk show. And she was surprised to find herself facing a crowd of over 200 enthusiastic fans who had gathered there to meet the Bollywood star.
An insider reveals that PC — who has been promoting her debut international single In My City — was invited to be a guest on Tout Le Monde En Parle hosted by Guy Le Page. “It is one of the most popular chat shows on TV there. When Priyanka arrived at the studio, she was mobbed by more than 200 fans. It was unexpected and no one including the studio was prepared for it. There was a stampede and security had to be called in, just to ensure that PC gets into the studio safely,” says the insider.
The source adds that not only Priyanka, even the studio officials were surprised with the turnout. “The security officials told us that in the past 10 years of the show being on air they had never seen anything like that. They have had a whole host of international celebrities on the show, but they admitted that they had never seen a reception like that,” the source shares.
As for Priyanka, the insider shares that when she heard that the fans had been waiting in the cold for many hours just to see her, she made sure that they all got a chance to meet her and take pictures.
“Priyanka has been getting a very positive response for both her films as well as her song. Though the actress is used to such a turn-out, she was not prepared for a crowd like this in Montreal. Despite a tight schedule, Priyanka made sure that it was worth the wait for her fans. Post her show she interacted with several of them,” adds the source.
