New Delhi: Priyanka Chopra has apologised after she was called out on social media for referring to Sikkim as a state “troubled with insurgency” in an interview at the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival.
Priyanka referred to Sikkim as “troubled” when she was speaking in connection with her new Sikkimese production – Pahuna – which premiered at the prestigious film fest last week. Twitter is furious and “Shame on you, Priyanka Chopra,” the actress was told.
Twitter is in no mood to pardon Priyanka and is also separately angered with the actress who tagged Pahuna as the first film from Sikkim. “Priyanka Chopra, you called Sikkim an insurgency affected state. Idiot. God doesn’t give everything to everybody. Find better uses for your loud mouth,” she was told. “Get your facts right before speaking out. Sikkim is one of the most beautiful states of our country,” added another on Twitter.
Priyanka was also slammed for appeared to have not been thorough with her research: “Priyanka Chopra says Sikkim is a troubled state in interview to US media. Pea-sized brain, zero homework. Is this how you make money?” a tweet said.
