6 Famous Guys Who Were Linked to Priyanka Chopra in the Past (& Present)
July 27, 2018
is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood — heck, maybe even the WORLD. We’re seriously envious about every aspect of the Priyanka Chopra Quantico actress. Not only is the 35-year-old star of Baywatch one of the most attractive people we’ve ever seen, but she’s also a talented television and movie star, a philanthropist, plus seriously smart. (Did you know that she initially aspired to study aeronautical engineering? Yeah, that kind of smart.)
So it’s no wonder that people, like
Gerard Butler, are totally crushing on PC. However, not everyone has the privilege of saying that they were romantically linked to her. As far as we know, these are the only famous guys who can… one of whom she’s actually engaged to ATM!

Aseem Merchant is Priyanka's first known boyfriend. The brunette beauty reportedly dated the star in the late '90s/early 2000s, when she was known more as a model — did you know she won the Miss World 2000 pageant?? — than as an actress. The two are said to have called it quits shortly after she entered the world of acting herself.

Shah Rukh Khan
Nearly a decade prior to
Quantico, Priyanka appeared in a movie called Don, along with Shah Rukh Khan, who's 27 years her senior... but that wasn't the problem with their alleged off-screen romance; the problem was that he's got a wife, Gauri Khan, and kids at home!
The two shot the sequel film
Don 2 five years after the original flick's release, and the rumors only flared back up. SRK denied all rumors of extramarital affairs, though, saying, "I do not know where these rumors erupted from! Gauri believes in me and that's the reason we have been together all these years. Priyanka is a good actress..."

In 2007, the gorgeous celebrity began dating her
Love Story 2050 co-star, Harman Baweja. The two reportedly dated for over a year before calling it quits in early 2009, prior to the release of their second joint production, What's Your Raashee?
According to Harman, both of them remained completely professional post-split on the set of their film, saying that it wasn't tough to shoot "at all" despite the breakup. "Whether we were together or now, I don't think our work can ever get affected," he
explained. "We're thorough professionals about this. We've been great friends and we still are great things."

Though Priyanka made a special appearance in 2006 the Indian comedy murder mystery film
36 China Town, she didn't really have time to get to know one of the production's main stars, Shahid Kapoor, until three years later, when they both shot the 2009 movie Kaminey: The Scoundrels.
Sometime during shooting, they reportedly began a relationship... but it was cut short when he supposedly called it off because she partied too much for him. Priyanka? Really??
Whatever the case, they must've had an amicable split because the two filmed the 2012 Indian romance film
Teri Meri Kahaani without any sort of relationship dramz.

A couple weeks after his
breakup with , Taylor Swift Tom Hiddleston was reportedly spotted getting flirty with Priyanka at an Emmys after-party.
"Tom had his arm around her and held her close," reported
. "Afterward, Tom and Priyanka talked closely and were holding hands at one point for a few moments. Priyanka fixed Tom's bow-tie and then the two kissed on both cheeks." E! News
That same night, Priyanka allegedly "gave her phone to Tom who then gave his phone to her. They proceeded to put their phone numbers in each other's phones before embracing in a 'long hug' and 'several kisses on the cheek.'"
According to the actress herself, though, she had just met Tom for 15 minutes before presenting together at the Emmys; he helped her adjust her dress. Wow, what a love story.

And the most shocking pairing of 2018 goes to... Priyanka Chopra and
Nick Jonas! The two appeared on the Met Gala red carpet together in May 2017, but no one thought anything of it. The following year, though, they attended a baseball game together and it was like... what's happening here? The final nails in the coffin came in early June 2018, when the Jonas Brothers alum commented on the actress' Instagram and she commented back on his.
We know that Nick
has a ~thing~ for older women, hooking up with older beauties such as Delta Goodrem and Kate Hudson, so the fact that Priyanka is 10 years his senior means that she fits his type (you know, mature and beautiful) to a T.
On Thursday, July 28, 2018, things took a drastic turn into SERIOUS territory: reports began circulating that
the two ARE ENGAGED!!! Guess we should expect ~wedding bells~ soon.
