References of classic Indian movies were shared
Disgusting of Priyanka Chopra to demean Bollywood. Bollywood makes worldclass movies. Even the recent ones like Dangal, Padman are fantastic.
Looks like she has acted mostly in such low grade movies. https://t.co/qNzj5LrsUC

Dear @priyankachopra India is not about hips and boobs, passing cheap, sweeping generalisations about India reinforcing stereotypes that the west so desperately wants established.
Do us a favour, Don’t come back to your third world home, stay there, be their pet.#shameOnPriyanka
