Barely days after a three month whirlwind romance with pop singer Taylor Swift and a break-up, everybody's favourite villain, the gorgeously sexy Tom Hiddleston was reportedly seen flirting with Indian actress Priyanka Chopra at the after-party following the Emmy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday night. 

What we saw on TV

Tom Hiddleston and Priyanka Chopra were present at the Emmys to give away the award for the 'Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special' which went to Susanne Bier, the director of the British spy/drama mini series, "The Night Manager," based on John Le Carrè's novel of the same name and where Tom played the lead. As the duo approached the microphone, Hiddleston being the chivalric gentleman he is, twirled Priyanka Chopra who looked fabulous in her red Jason Wu gown. 

Behind the scenes

However things quickly escalated in the after-party. According to E! Online, the other guests saw Tom and Priyanka take selfies, exchange phone numbers, and openly flirt with each other.

A source even told E! Online, 'Tom had his arm around her and held her close. Afterwards, 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.'

HiddleSwift over, what's next?

Rumors might say the whole romance was a publicity stunt but unless Hiddleston opens up on what actually happened or Swift writes another chart-topping song filled with the details of the relationship for fans to read and analyze, we'll never know for sure. Safe to say, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston aren't going to be seen kissing on the beach anytime soon. 

We all know Tom Hiddleston has a sister in India who works as a journalist in Chennai and whom he has visited occasionally, albiet it was all top-secret. But if Priyanka Chopra and Tom actually get together, then the formidable Loki's Army in India have great cause for celebration.  Who knows, then we might even see the world's favorite villain dancing a jig in a Bollywood movie.

And meeting him in person at a movie premiere for a selfie and autograph will actually be a dream come true for plenty of Indian fans.

Priyanka Chopra is all set to make her Hollywood debut next year starring in "Baywatch." Meanwhile, wait another year to see Tom Hiddleston reprise his role as Loki in the Marvel blockbuster "Thor: Ragnarok" due to release on November 3, 2017.

But for now, keep your fingers crossed for HiddleChopra or PriyaTom as you see fit.
