Actresses Priyanka Chopra ended up drawing the ire of several social media users after she posted a picture of her meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin.
The pictures from their meeting grabbed eyeballs on social media — including those of trolls who harangued her for dressing and sitting “inappropriately” in front of Modi.
Some of the criticism was also directed at Modi — for meeting with celebrities rather than protesting farmers in Tamilnadu and Maharashtra. However, much of the ire was directed towards Chopra, for choosing a knee length dress for the occasion.
Priyanka gave a perfect answer to her trollers after she uploaded another picture on Instagram and this time with her mother. The caption of the picture read, “Legs for days…. #itsthegenes with @madhuchopra nights out in #Berlin #beingbaywatch.” The message came with a lovely mother-daughter bonding photo and with two pairs of legs in it. Love ya, Priyanka.
Her Fashion co-star Kangana Ranaut also faced a similar backlash when she wore “objectionable” western attire while receiving her National Film Award, for Anand L Rai’s 2015 romantic comedy Tanu Weds Manu Returns, from President Pranab Mukherjee.
Many fans and celebs came to support Priyanka Chopra even India Today wrote :
There are few female actors in Bollywood who are as self-made as Priyanka Chopra is. There are few who have risen to the top as Priyanka Chopra has, without a godfather. There are few women in the Indian film industry, like Priyanka Chopra, who are investing in multiple regional-language films, one of which won three National Awards this year. And yet, when Priyanka Chopra wore a knee-length dress – as she is completely free to, in case you did not know – while meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, millions of Indians began outraging, “Arre, why is wearing such a short dress in front of the PM?”
