Bollywood celebrities paid tribute to legendary basketball player Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash Sunday. Many took to social media to express their shock and grief to the untimely death of Kobe and his daughter.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas who was at the Grammys 2020 paid a special tribute to the NBA star. The annual ceremony isn't only focused on music, as news broke earlier on Sunday that Bryant and his daughter had passed away in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. The Indian actress took a moment to style her decorated nails with the number "24" written on her index finger, reports eonline.com. That number belonged to Bryant, who played for the Los Angeles Lakers for 20 years before he retired in 2016.
"RIP Mamba," Priyanka shared on Instagram Story with a purple heart emoji, alongside an image of her tribute. While attending the 2020 Grammys, she walked arm-in-arm with her husband and singer Nick Jonas.
Before the show, Chopra posted a photo of Kobe and Gianna to Instagram with a caption expressing her condolences to the Bryant family. "He inspired an entire generation. His legacy is so much bigger than basketball. This heartbreaking accident also took the life of his young daughter, Gianna. I’m shook and so saddened. My heart goes out to Vanessa, Natalia, Bianka, and Capri Bryant." She also shared a photo to her Instagram story of her sweet nail art.
