Gerard Butler has millions of girls swooning over him, but a few years ago, he lost his heart to our very own ‘desi girl’ Priyanka Chopra. In 2009, he came down to India, and Priyanka hosted a party in honour of him at her Versova residence. Through the course of the evening, the smitten Gerard tried his best to woo her, but to no avail.
“Of course the party was for Gerard who was completely besotted by Priyanka and kept proposing to her every half hour. It’s become a standing joke rather a ‘kneeling’ joke between them. ‘Will you marry me?’ he knelt and said every half hour while she would burst into laughter. She’s clearly not interested on being Mrs Butler,” a guest at the party revealed to The Times Of India.
Even after the party, Gerard could not get Priyanka out of his mind. In an interview in 2012, he expressed his admiration for her and joked, “I am still single because I am waiting for Priyanka Chopra.”
Gerard is currently dating Morgan Brown, while Priyanka is said to have found love in Nick Jonas.
Priyanka and Nick sparked rumours of a romance when they were spotted on a series of dates during the Memorial Day weekend. The two are also indulging in lots of PDA on social media, by leaving flirtatious comments on each other’s pictures on Instagram.
