Bollywood actress and Hollywood star Priyanka Chopra on Thursday was reportedly accused of flouting COVID-19 rules in London, as she stepped out for a salon appointment with mother Madhu Chopra. The former Miss World winner, has, however, denied breaking any rules with her spokesperson stating that the actress had the required paperwork 'legally permitting her to be there'. Metro.co.uk quoted Priyanka’s spokesperson as saying, “Following government guidance, Priyanka’s hair was coloured for the purpose of the film she is currently shooting in London. The salon was opened privately for the production and everyone involved had been tested and followed both the DCMS working guidelines and the film production regulations.”
“As I am sure you are aware, film and TV production is permitted to continue in the UK, and locations can continue to accommodate shoots and recces (pre-filming visits) that are carried out in-line with government guidelines. The paperwork legally permitting her to be there was provided to the police, and they left satisfied,” the spokesperson said. Earlier, it was reported that the police were alerted of the breach of lockdown rules at the salon and reached there at around 5.40pm. They left after issuing a verbal reminder to the owner and did not impose any fine. Priyanka is in London with her husband, Nick Jonas, who shot for a cameo in Text For You last month. The film, a remake of the German film SMS Fur Dich, also features Sam Heughan, Celine Dion, Russell Tovey and Omid Djalili.
