News Update: Salman on PC, and Shahid Does Prabhudeva

This is it, right?  This has got to be the end of the Priyanka Chopra story, since PC refuses to give a statement herself, that means Salman’s version becomes definitive and now we are done?  Please please say we are done!  Oh, and if you don’t care about PC, it is possible this other news story will get you very excited (angry maybe?).
