She’s been living in London for the past three months while shooting her upcoming movie, Text For You.

And Priyanka Chopra, 38, celebrated her last day on set for the film as she shared a face mask selfie with the ‘incredible crew’ to Instagram on Saturday.

It comes days after the actress sparked a furore when she was seen at the Josh Wood Colour salon in Notting Hill, with police also visiting the hairdressers.

Priyanka made sure she’d be warm for the final day of filming in the British capital as she donned a thick black winter jacket and cream scarf.

She tied back her brunette locks back into a messy bun and appeared to be relaxed as she enjoyed a quick quiet moment during her day on set.

The star also wore a white mask as she posed for the camera while standing a little bit apart from several members of the crew, who were also wearing face coverings.

She penned: ‘Last day on set! #TextForYou. Will miss this incredible crew that I’ve spent the last 3 months with. So special to be at work. #grateful’ 

On Wednesday Priyanka was seen by police officers after they found her attending an appointment at the Josh Wood Colour salon in Notting Hill. 

It then emerged on Thursday that she had escaped a fine after showing police paperwork stating the hair colouring session was for a film.

A spokesperson for the actress said: ‘Following government guidance, Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ hair was coloured by Josh Wood for the purpose of the film she is currently shooting.

‘The salon was opened privately for the production and everyone involved had been tested and followed both the DCMS working guidelines and the film production regulations.

‘As per Film London and current government advice, by continuing to follow the approved COVID-19 guidance, Film and TV production can continue in the Capital and locations can continue to accommodate shoots and recces that are carried out in-line with the guidance.’ 

Priyanka is currently living in London with her husband Nick Jonas, 28, and was pictured arriving at the shop alongside her mother Madhu before two police officers arrived in a squad car and appeared to order the customers out.

However the pictures sparked disbelief from members of the public who have been subject to increasingly tight lockdown rules, with some questioning if she thought she was above the rules. 

One directly contacted her on Twitter, asking: ‘Why are you and your mum pictured at a salon getting your hair done when it’s against the rules in the UK right now??!!

‘Why are the rules different for you, who do you think you are?’ 

While Sarah Nichols said: ‘Getting so fed up with ‘celebrities’ thinking they don’t have to do this lockdown like the rest of us. 

‘Why should Priyanka Chopra be able to get her hair done. Why does some swanky London salon think it’s above the rules. GRRRRRRR’

Another added: ‘Why should Priyanka think she is above the law and flout the regulations? Selfish beyond belief. I hope Josh Wood her stylist gets £10k fine.’

A spokesperson for the Met Police told MailOnline: ‘Police were alerted at around 17:40hrs on Wednesday, 6 January to reports of a Covid breach taking place within a hairdressers on Lansdowne Mews, Notting Hill. 

‘Officers attended and the owner of the salon was given a verbal reminder of the important need to comply with all regulations regarding Covid-19 and signposted to sources of advice. No fixed penalty notices were issued.’

On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that the UK was being plunged into national lockdown with immediate effect, meaning the visit was an apparent blatant violation of the rules, which state that business owners could be fined up to £10,000 for breaking the rules.  

Government guidelines on hair salons in lockdown state: ‘Personal care facilities such as hair, beauty, tanning and nail salons. Tattoo parlours, spas, massage parlours, body and skin piercing services must also close. These services should not be provided in other people’s homes’.

Despite the new rules, Priyanka still made her way to the salon with her mother, who was walking along with Priyanka’s beloved dog, Diana, a chihuahua mix.

When the pair, alongside an aide were inside the shop, the police arrived in their squad car and stood at the door speaking to those inside the salon, before Priyanka then headed out shortly with a bag of Josh Wood goodies.

Text For You follows a young woman as she grieves the tragic loss of her fiancé and decides to send romantic messages to his old phone number. 

As she does so, the woman begins to form an attachment to the man who the phone number was reassigned to, and who is also struggling with a similar heartbreak. The pair meet and can’t deny the connection they feel with one another, and decide to give love another chance.

Priyanka takes on the lead role in the film and stars in it alongside Highlander star Sam Heughan, while her other co-stars include Celine Dion, Russell Tovey, Arinzé Kene, and Omid Djalili. 

The film is an English remake of the German film SMS Fur Dich, which itself is based on the novel of the same name by Sofie Cramer.
