The Primetime Emmy Awards 2016, which was held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night (Monday morning IST), witnessed a lot of excitement and with good reason – after all, it is television’s biggest night. However, the after-party too had more than its share of excitement, courtesy Priyanka Chopra and Tom Hiddleston.

Chopra and The Night Manager actor, who made a joint appearance on stage to present the award for the ‘Outstanding Director for Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special’, were said to be “openly flirting” with each other at the after-party.

According to E!Online, Hiddleston had his arm around Chopra and held her close during the after-party. They were reportedly holding hands at one point and even exchanged numbers before embracing in a “long hug” and planting “several kisses on the cheek”. Chopra left the after-party minutes after Hiddleston made an exit.

The two were spotted together earlier over the weekend during the rehearsals of the award show.

This comes weeks after Hiddleston called it quits with Taylor Swift. Their short-lived romance, which started at the dance-off at Met Gala 2016, had caught the attention of many. However, the two parted ways when Swift apparently refused to walk down the Emmys red carpet with him.
