So Malala Yosufzai has been under the celebrity radar for quite some time now. The Nobel Laureate has been receiving a lot of attention from A-list celebrities all across the world as of late. When you’re such a huge inspiration for the world, it’s bound to happen.
Just over two months ago legendary Irish rock band U2 gave a stellar tribute to our girl here at one of their concerts

Then, earlier this year, Malala hung out with Canada’s heartthrob Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
Then there was a whole bunch of other celebrities that she chilled out. Here you could see her being interviewed by none other than fellow feminist and global icon, Emma Watson
And then she was awarded by Queen Rania of Jordan
Whether we like it or not, Malala Yosufzai is big deal in the world and for all the right reasons. She is practically a celebrity in her own right. So this is something we’ll all have to get used to.
Just recently, Nikolaj CosterWaldau, who is famous for playing Jamie Lannister in Game of Thrones, met Malala with his daughters and was absolutely thrilled
It was such an honour and inspiration for me and my daughters to meet you and your father. Thank you https://t.co/LeMyPsXZfZ

Priyanka who is an ambassador for UNICEF met Malala at an event hosted by United Nations General Assembly (UNGA)
However it wasn’t just Malala that experienced a fangirl moment, Priyanka immediately tweeted back with love and support

Priyanka also posted a heartfelt message on her Instagram account relating to this.
“I could write a novel about how smart, incredible, inspiring, encouraging and funny this young woman is…but I will keep it brief. Malala, you are an undeniable force to be reckoned with. The world knows that. You are a role model to all the girls and boys that want to make this world a better place for the future. Spending a few hours with you and your incredible father Mr. Yousafzai ( who reminds me so much of my father) , I realized you’re also just a young girl with young dreams. Your jokes, Your love for Hindi Films, your infectious laughter will always remind me of what a huge responsibility you have taken on at such a tender age.. I’m so proud to know you, my friend. You inspire women like me all over the world. Can’t wait to speak to u in our secret Hindi/Urdu again. ❤️”
Naturally, people were psyched to see the union between the two
BEAUTIFUL ROLE MODELS BEING BEAUTIFUL TOGETHER I AM LIVING

Some saw it as an honor for Priyanka rather than the other way around
You are a bigger star with much greater contributions to the world than Priyanka Chopra. She should be proud she met Malala 🙂

And some just reiterated what PC said
I don't think @priyankachopra can believe she met YOU.

There were those perceived this as an opportunity to push for Indo-Pak dosti
India and Pakistan should be united despite all these horrible situations???? they can work on that. It's a slow process but not impossible

But don’t let them bog you down.
We are just glad that Malala, for all her sacrifices, is being recognized by all corners of the world. What did you think of the meeting between the two successful and beautiful women?
