Hitting out at the international media for mistaking her for Priyanka Chopra time and again, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone on May 5 said that it’s ignorant and downright racists.
Slamming the international media for judging people for their similar skin tones, Deepika said, “just because people have similar skin tones, doesn’t mean they are same people”.
The comment was made with regards to a video that had has gone viral one social media and in which we can see a US paparazzi constantly referring to Deepika as “Priyanka”.
While Deepika for many months decided not to comment about the video, in a recent interview, she finally broke her silence and said that to her the incident was racists, ignorant and as fellow Indians, others too should also not be happy about it.
Few days back PeeCee too had slammed the foreign media for confusing Deepika for her and called it sheer ignorance.
