In the year 2010, it was director, Siddharth Anand, who decided to bring one of the most stunning actresses of all time, Priyanka Chopra and the young and dynamic, Ranbir Kapoor, together on the big screen. It was the film, Anjaana Anjaani, where Priyanka and Ranbir worked together for the first time with each other. While the film's music still holds a big place in everyone’s hearts, Ranbir and Priyanka’s chemistry also received a big thumbs-up from the audience. It was neither a flop nor a hit at the box office, as it succeeded in paying the bills.
During the film's promotion, reports were rife that something was cooking between the two co-stars during the film’s shooting.

Once in an interview with Rediff.com, Priyanka Chopra’s mother, Madhu Chopra had opened up about her daughter. The renowned producer had heaped praises on her daughter for being independent and making her way into the industry all on her own. Reflecting on how her daughter has always been a strong-headed person, Madhu Chopra shared an incident when Priyanka’s actions hurt an A-listed actor’s ego. The doting mother revealed that once, her daughter was shooting with an A-listed actor and was told by the director to jump into the ocean and scream for help as per the scene.
However, when Priyanka Chopra jumped into the ocean and started acting like she was drowning, the A-listed actor, who was supposed to jump into the ocean to save her, told the person in charge of the boat to move it away from the actress in order to play a prank on her. The actor thought that Priyanka would panic and scream for his help. But he didn’t know that Priyanka was a skilled swimmer. Revealing how the actor got pissed, Madhu Chopra admitted that her daughter never skips a chance to put people in their place. She said:
"So they went out in the boat. She had not told anybody she could swim. The hero tried to play a prank on her. She jumped and they moved the boat away, thinking she'd believe she was drowning and make a noise. She did no such thing... she started swimming. She's a very strong swimmer. She was enjoying herself in the water. The hero got so pissed."

After the interview made its way online, a series of people started speculating that it was Ranbir Kapoor. The scene Madhu Chopra was talking about in her interview was from the film, Anjaana Anjaani. While most people lashed out at Ranbir for playing a prank on Priyanka right in the middle of an ocean, many did his character assassination in the comments section. One user blamed Ranbir’s mother, Neetu Kapoor, for his poor etiquette and commented, "He also pushed his non-swimmer maid into the pool to see how she would drown. She almost did. Looks like a natural progression of events here as far as Neetu ka Nalayak is concerned. Yeah, that’s what I’m calling him. I like holding parents accountable for their kids." Another netizen commented, "Exactly!!! This pissed me off. What a ridiculous man child."
