Just when we thought Priyanka might act a bit weird over this incident, she showed a lot of empathy towards Deepika Padukone who is also considered her rival many-a-times by the media. Recently, this is what she was quoted as saying to the media regarding the mistake, “That was unfair and a serious case of ignorance. It’s not right, every brown girl does not look the same. Indians constitute one-fifth of the world’s population and the representation of our prolific film industry in world cinema is our responsibility. We have to put ourselves out there.”
