Why Priyanka Chopra skipped the Oscars


LOS ANGELES: Priyanka Chopra disappointed fans and followers with her absence on the red carpet of the film industry’s most coveted event: the Oscars ceremony.

Though she was not invited as a presenter, it was still expected that she would stun everyone at the red carpet, considering she is one of the Academy.

However, it has been revealed that the actor did not attend the annual award ceremony due to ill health.

A picture posted on Chopra’s Instagram stories, with her in bed, read, “I wish all my friends nominated tonight all the very best! So sick but wishing everyone from bed. Can’t wait to know the winners,”

Priyanka previously attended the Academy Awards in 2016 and 2017 and awed everyone on both occasions. She also made her Hollywood movie debut with Dwayne Johnson in Baywatch. She will be seen now with Claire Danes and Jim Parsons in A Kid Like Jake and with Rebel Wilson in Isn’t It Romantic.

Victoria and Abdul star Ali Fazal didn’t attend the Oscars ceremony with girlfriend Richa Chadha. He was, however, invited by the Academy for a special panel discussion on costume and make-up in movies on Sunday.
