Priyanka Chopra has made a mark in the American entertainment space. Although she may not be signing on any new projects, the actor has attracted loads of attention to herself and has become a massive hit among American publications and channels. She does multiple interviews and makes loads of videos that reside on the internet.
Among these videos, Priyanka Chopra made a video detailing her 5 life lessons.
I wouldn’t recommend watching the video unless you want to watch something particularly cringy.
5 life lessons with yours truly 😂 (I'm so funny) haha

Her first rule is to always be bigger…than your skirt.
The shot reveals that Priyanka is wearing a lehnga..which is supposedly the skirt in this situation.
Her second rule is to have nothing to hide.
She thirsts traps (or at least tries) her watchers by showing her backless sari that has been tied very very low.
Her third rule is…’Sari Not Sorry’.
Oh my GOD, WHY.
4th Rule: ‘Make Some Noise’.
How does she make noise? With her ghungroos tied around her ankle. Let’s be honest, the dance that followed was A W K W A R D.
Her last lesson is to patch up the differences you have with others.
Throughout her five life lessons, she used references from South Asian culture, but her use was rather unsettling. It seemed like she was using her culture to pander to her American audience. It borders on disrespect and people are calling her out on that.
Sab theek toh hai na Priyanka? Nick tumhe pareshan toh nahi karta na?

Contrary to Priyanka’s belief, she was called ‘unfunny’.
Sorry not Funny …. Sari not Funny …. Style not Funny …. Priyanka …. not Funny
Only Rahul Gandhi is Funny !

People were NOT happy, at all.
You choose an American husband and that way of life. Your choice. Be happy. But don’t you dare make fun of my country and culture. Or is it a prerequisite that unless u make fun of Indian & Hindu culture u r not accepted there.

Well, at least she was the ‘most’ at something, if not funny, annoying hi sahi.
She has got to be the most annoying person honestly https://t.co/mDkBSpJMw5

So, really, the main takeaway here is that people are angry at Priyanka Chopra, as usual.
You are our defaming our countries traction & culture

What monstrosity and perversity is this? Why is she trying so hard to 'belong' to Western audience? Pathetic, man. https://t.co/j6Ll48VPoH

Priyanka Chopra had recently talked about being ‘brown’ in America. She also talked about how the community needs to not be referred to as ‘exotic’ or ‘brown’. While that sentiment is good, her decision to do such videos casts a question on her intentions.
