Bollywood’s ‘desi girl’ Priyanka Chopra seems to be bombarded with hateful trolls on social media every now and then.
On the occasion of India’s Independence Day on 15 August, the ‘Baywatch’ actor shared a boomerang video of herself where she is seen wearing a tee and jeans and has a tricolour ‘dupatta’ wrapped around her neck. Priyanka shared the video on Instagram writing, “Independence Day #Vibes ����#MyHeartBelongsToIndia #happyindependencedayindia #jaihind.”
Soon after PeeCee shared her video, comments started pouring in. There were comments from her followers who accused her of disrespecting the flag and some suggested that she should have been attired more traditionally and went as far as saying she should remain in the US instead of returning to India.
One comment reads, “Please don’t return to India again”, while another one reads, “Don’t you have a salwar-kameez for this occasion?” “How about a sari,” said another, “At least on this auspicious day, you were expected in a sari.”
There were even some comments supporting the actress where one of those comments read, “Guys commenting negative comments: are you out of your mind? It’s a tricolour stole/dupatta. People all over India wear this combination on 15th August. This ain’t no flag. So when people win matches and wrap the flag around their body and run, that isn’t insult? Think before you talk.”
Priyanka was recently trolled twice, once for wearing a knee-length dress while meeting PM Narendra Modi in Berlin, Germany. And the second time was when she posted a pouty picture of herself on Instagram that sparked rumours of a lip job.
