In a series of tweets earlier this month, Jaju had said the 33-year-old 'Quantico' star tried to commit suicide thrice during her struggling days, including in 2002 after the death of her alleged former boyfriend Aseem Merchant's mother.

"This is utter... First of all, it's so sad that Indian media has given credibility to the man, who was in jail because of harassing me, without checking the history who the person is. So, I have nothing to say because there is no credibility to this person, who media is giving credibility to," she told media.

Things between the 'Bajirao Mastani' star and Jaju turned sour when she terminated his services in 2004.

Later, he even filed a criminal suit against her, accusing that she has not cleared his dues.

Jaju, however, ended up serving 67 days in jail after Priyanka's father, Ashok Chopra filed a complaint against him for interfering in his daughter's privacy.

His tweets came days after popular TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee was found dead at her home.

Priyanka, however, finds it disappointing that finger has been pointed at the entertainment industry.

"Why don't we talk about those women, who commit suicide because they were harassed by the mother-in-laws or being beaten in their homes? Or they kill themselves because they are unhappy in their homes? It's so easy to turn around and say about the showbiz world."

Priyanka condemned those, who are talking ill about the actress without even finding the actual truth.

"Nobody knows the truth. Nobody ever tried to find out what the poor 24-year-old girl was going through... And as usual, people are dissecting her life. People are unnecessarily talking about her, not giving her and family the respect they deserve right now."

The 'Jai Gangaajal' star said the youth should not end their own lives and rather teach a lesson to the person, who is bothering them.
