Priyanka Chopra took to her Instagram account to share a few pictures from the screening of Chhello Show.

While PeeCee opted for a black one-shoulder outfit, Bhavin was seen in a white-and-red traditional attire. In her caption, Priyanka Chopra wrote that the least she can do is support the industry that taught her all she knows about her job.

“The least I can do is always support the industry that taught me all I know about my job. So proud of the amazing movies that come out of Indian cinema. ‘Chhello Show’ being one of the special ones. Good luck team! Go get ‘em,” wrote Priyanka. She further explained that Chhello Show is a regional language movie that has been selected as India’s Official Entry to the Best International Feature Film category at the 95th Academy Awards.

While concluding the caption, Priyanka Chopra also thanked her BFF Isha Ambani for lending her luxurious LA home for the screening of Chhello Show. “P.P.S. Thank you @_iiishmagish for lending the team your LA home for the screening!” she wrote. Priyanka and Isha Ambani share a close bond, and in an interview with Vogue, Isha once mentioned that PeeCee is like an elder sister to her.

“We actually got closer when we were both living away from home in the US. We again share a very real relationship- we see each other in real-life settings and not in like glamorous ones; we have real conversations. She's a really strong mentor and role model,” she said.

David Dubinsky shares pictures and videos from the screening of Chhello Show

Yesterday, David Dubinsky also posted several pictures and videos from the Chhello Show special screening. The pictures show him posing with Priyanka Chopra, Bhavin Rabari and others. One of the videos he shared shows Priyanka talking about single-screen theatres in India, and how her late father Dr. Ashok Chopra would bunk school during his childhood to watch movies on the big screen. She also asked Bhavin Rabari about the only movie he had watched before being cast in Chhello Show. He responded that it was Aamir Khan’s Dangal.

Another video clip shared by David Dubinsky gives a glimpse of Isha Ambani’s lavish LA home, decorated with beautiful lights and massive posters of Chhello Show. Other video clips show the beautifully designed outdoor spaces, while another clip shows a piano being played, while the guests interacted with each other.
