Actress Priyanka Chopra, who was the brand ambassador of Nirav Modi's designer jewellery line, has terminated her contract with the brand post the PNB scam. The Punjab National Bank (PNB) earlier this month levelled allegations of Rs 11,400 crore financial fraud against Modi. The announcement was made by Priyanka's spokesperson on Friday.
As per PTI, the spokesperson said in a statement, "In light of recent allegations, Priyanka Chopra has chosen to terminate her contract with the Nirav Modi brand." Priyanka had appeared in the TV commercial for Nirav Modi brand along with actor Sidharth Malhotra. While Priyanka is seeking legal opinion on the matter, Sidharth has already made it clear that he will not be taking any legal action against the brand as his contract expired last year.
