Priyanka Chopra confirms via a micro blogging site that she chose to skip SRK and Gauri Khan’s Christmas bash to be with her parents. Meanwhile tongues have been wagging about her absence from Mannat. Much has been spoken about Priyanka not being present at Shah Rukh Khan’s Christmas bash at Mannat on Saturday night. Hostess Gauri has been planning the party the whole of last week. While some suggest that Gauri did not extend an invitation to the actress, who has in the past made headlines for her closeness to King Khan, others claim the actress was too busy with personal commitments to make it to the celebrations at Mannat. With regulars like Karan Johar, Hrithik-Sussanne, Arjun-Mehr, Farhan-Adhuna, Riteish-Genelia, Mahesh-Lara, Dino-Nandita, Karisma Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan and others present, PC ‘s absence was surely noticed. Friends however confirmed that the actor decided to give the party a miss and spend time with her family who was going out of town. And now, PC has come out and cleared the air in a subtle yet strong manner. “Toooo early to wake up man! ESP with Christmas spirits in the house..My family’s been leaving for our holiday in installments since 3 days. ha! (sic),” posted the actor on a micro blogging site. “Now home alone.. BooHoo! But working like crazy so will try and compensate for missing them..what r ur new year plans?” she further posted.
