Rakesh Jhunjhunwala was asked if Priyanka Chopra was his favourite actress: He gave a winning answer!
Sometime around his fiftieth birthday, Jhunjhunwala or Big Bull as he was called, in conversation with Business Today TV’s Global Business Editor Udayan Mukherjee, was quizzed if Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra, known for her performances in films like Barfi and Bajirao Mastani, was his favourite heroine.
Mukherjee, while recollecting the incident, stated, “So when I met him, I said [to] Rakesh I’d say that you’ve become quite the ladies man these days. Priyanka Chopra and all I mean. Is she your favourite Bollywood heroine now or what?”“To this, Jhunjhunwala quipped that he actually loves Rekha (his wife).”
“So you know for a moment I was thrown. I thought it was Rekha the Bollywood heroine but actually, he was talking about his wife Rekha and I burst out laughing because it was such a clever thing to say: I love Rekha and not Priyanka Chopra,” Mukherjee pointed out.

This was followed by a quick reply by Jhunjhunwala. Mukherjee noted, “He just looked at me and said hey young man don’t you go around trying those tricks with me. Don’t teach your grandmother how to suck eggs, as they say in England.”
