As the UK is in the midst of its third strict lockdown, actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas has been accused of flouting the rules.
Chopra Jonas was seen out in the central London suburb of Notting Hill at a hair salon last week. She attended an appointment with her mother, Madhu.
Two police officers reportedly visited the establishment where they were told they needed to leave the premises.
However, a spokesperson for the actress made a statement to clear up any accusations that she had allegedly flouted lockdown rules.
“Following government guidance, Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s hair was coloured by Josh Wood for the purpose of the film she is currently shooting,” the spokesperson said, per a statement to The Mirror. “The salon was opened privately for the production and everyone involved had been tested.”
In the statement, it was clarified that there was “exemption paperwork legally permitting” the actress to be at the salon. The paperwork was ” provided to the police, and they left satisfied”.
“As I am sure you are aware, film and TV production is permitted to continue in the UK, and locations can continue to accommodate shoots and recces that are carried out in line with government guidelines.
“The exemption paperwork legally permitting her to be there was provided to the police, and they left satisfied.”
The Bollywood and Hollywood star has been residing in the UK with her husband Nick Jonas for the last few months while she has been filming he new film, romantic drama Text For You.
