Priyanka Chopra At A Kid Like Jake Premiere pre-party
Actress Priyanka Chopra, global brand ambassador of Nirav Modi Jewels, has not sued the billionaire jeweller although she is contemplating scrapping her contract after allegations of financial fraud to the tune of Rs 11,300 crore were made against him.
“There are speculative reports that Priyanka Chopra has sued Nirav Modi. This is not true,” a spokesperson for Chopra said. “She is currently seeking legal opinion on terminating her contract with the brand in light of allegations of financial fraud against Nirav Modi.
Chopra, with a net worth estimated at $28 million, signed a three-year endorsement contract with Nirav Modi Jewels in January last year. She is the only woman on Forbes magazine’s top 10 highest paid Indian celebrities last year, with earnings of Rs 68 crore.
Apart from turning the spotlight on those promoting other brands associated with Nirav Modi, the scam exposes how difficult it can be to curb misleading ads by celebrities.
