Another wrote: “Wow very early ur heart breaks.”

Many others appreciated her appeal.

A few days ago, Priyanka put up a note on social media requesting people to stay indoors. She told everyone to use the mask and make sure that they kept themselves safe. India is recording over 3 lakh cases every day since the past couple of days.

The actress also supported The White Tiger director, Ramin Bahrani, after he faced racist slurs. Priyanka Chopra said, “Who belongs here, and who doesn’t? Isn’t America a melting pot of all people from all backgrounds? This country was built on the back of immigrants in search of the American dream, a life of freedom, opportunity, and a safe place not only for themselves but for their families. Content by Hollywood is embraced by the world, but the world is not always embraced by Hollywood. Hollywood and pop culture, in general, have a massive responsibility in this fight for racial equality and representation in global entertainment.”
