MUMBAI: Looking every bit of a diva that she is, Global icon Priyanka Chopra rocked a white pantsuit and looked smoking hot as she attended the Beautycon Festival Los Angeles 2019.
However, as the actor took the stage at the event championing for “sisterhood” and female empowerment, an attendee from Pakistan accused the ‘Baywatch’ star.
An eyewitness told E! News that a Pakistani woman questioned the actor about her role as a United Nations Goodwill ambassador and her controversial tweet in March, where she wrote, “Jai Hind (Long live India) #IndianArmedForces.”
In a video from the event, which has since gone viral, the woman from the audience popped up a distasteful question.
She can be heard saying, “You are United Nations Goodwill ambassador for peace and you are encouraging nuclear war in Pakistan. There is no way you are in this… As a Pakistani, millions of people, like, me, have supported you in your business…”
According to the eyewitness, the attendee claimed that the actor was a “hypocrite” for “encouraging war between India and Pakistan.”
However, an unfazed Priyanka responded calmly.
“I have many, many friends from Pakistan and I am from India. War is not something I’m really fond of but I am patriotic, so I’m sorry if I hurt sentiments to people who do love me and have loved me,” Priyanka responded.
She continued, “But I think that all of us have a sort of, a middle ground that we all have to walk. Just like you probably do as well. The way that you came at me right now, girl, don’t yell. We’re all here for love.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka is all set to make her Bollywood comeback with Shonali Bose’s ‘The Sky Is Pink’. Apart from that, she has also collaborated with American actor Mindy Kaling for a wedding comedy.
