Guwahati/ 3rd May’2018 (Prag News Desk):
Did you really see Priyanka Chopra at Kaziranga? Or were you fooled by her duplicate? Well let’s clear the air without any further confusion.
Assam Tourism’s brand ambassador Priyanka Chopra, who is here in Assam for a three day trip for tourism shooting, is interestingly getting excessive love and fondness from her diehard fans here in Assam. Fans from far off places are thronging those places where Priyanka Chopra is allegedly on an official visit for her video shoots.
As people of Assam are still celebrating the visit of Priyanka Chopra, an interesting fact was revealed in Thursday after it was found that in order to shoot the promotional videos of Assam, a ‘duplicate’ or ‘body double’ of Priyanka Chopra was shooting in Kaziranga for ‘long shots’ after the star left.
It may be mentioned that a body double of a person is usually in the movie or television production industry to act in scenes where actors or actresses do not necessarily have to be present, like action sequences or sometimes long shots where the face isn’t very visible.
Meanwhile, fans of Priyanka Chopra thronged the shooting location in droves to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood Star but got to know only much later that it’s actually her ‘body double’ who is filling in for Priyanka for a few shots to be used in the video.
Priyanka Chopra had a very tight shooting schedule while she was here and stayed just for a couple of days.
While some locals did feel bad and ‘cheated’ after they came to know that the person whom they wanted to see so desperately was only her ‘body double’. “We were very happy to know that Priyanka Chopra was shooting promotional videos for Assam Tourism but then on Thursday it came to light that a duplicate was being used in Kaziranga,” said a disheartened fan of Assam’s tourism ambassador.
