It seems that Priyanka Chopra has become the favorite target of internet trolls. This time it’s the Boomerang video she posted on Independence Day which has come in the line of fire. In the video, Priyanka showed the tricolor wrapped around her neck like a scarf. The video got many likes but also landed her at the receiving end of hate. Many trolls demanded that the actress should apologize for insulting the National Flag and setting the wrong example.
In fact, trolls jumped on a chance to give Priyanka a tutorial on how to ‘appropriately’ dress for Independence Day. While one suggested she should wear a salwar kameez, another said that a saree perfectly suits the occasion. While no one suggested that she wear comfortable clothes like t-shirt and jeans like the rest of us because of course, it hides our ‘Indianness’!
The way Priyanka Chopra was trolled for her dress is yet another example of how mindless trolling can get. Calling her ‘un-Indian’ and suggesting that she should not return to the country, is not just sheer foolishness on their part, but rather shows how offensive people can get behind the shroud of the internet. Accusing the actress who has made India cinema popular across the globe and realized the Indian presence in the industry of glitz, is plain stupid. This is not the first time that Priyanka has been subjected to incessant trolling. When she met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin, her knee length dress was also slammed by many. Trolls said she wasn’t dressed appropriately for the occasion as she had been showing too much skin.
Here is the picture she posted on Independence Day and the hate comments she received:
Beyond all this hatred, the good news is that Priyanka Chopra doesn’t care about the opinion of trolls. She keeps scaling new heights by taking up diverse projects and has become more popular than ever before.
The Desi Girl is back in India and according to the reports, she had agreed to be a part in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gusthakiyan and will play the leading role in the movie, for which a male actor would be finalised for the movie. She was last seen in SLB’s Bajirao Mastani.
