Priyanka Chopra accused of 'encouraging nuclear war' as Kashmir tensions erupt at LA beauty event


Priyanka Chopra has been accused of “encouraging nuclear war” over comments she made amid soaring tensions between India and Pakistan.

The Indian actress, who made her name in Bollywood before moving to the US, was confronted by an audience member at a cosmetics event in Los Angeles.

The woman, who named herself on Twitter as Ayesha Malik, was handed the microphone during the Q&A portion of a BeautyCon panel featuring Chopra.

The exchange was caught on camera. Ms Malik said: “It was kind of hard hearing you talk about humanity, because as your neighbour, a Pakistani, I know you’re a bit of a hypocrite.”

Ms Malik cited a tweet sent by Chopra’s official account on February 26 in which the actress wrote “Jai Hind”, meaning “victory to India”.
