Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra's Independence Day post on social media has landed her in hot soup, receiving a lot of flak online for her choice of clothes.
The 'desi girl' had posted a boomerang video of her on Instagram - on August 15 - wearing a white tank top over a pair of blue jeans and a tricolour dupatta furling around her neck.
What is wrong you ask?
Netizens are trolling the actress for her choice of 'Western wardrobe' for the occasion, instead of a traditional outfit like a saree
Her Instagram followers have accused her of disrespecting the flag and the nation. Some even went as far as asking her not to come back to India.
"Please don't return to India again," said one user. Another one commented, "Don't you have a salwar-kameez for this occasion?" "How about a sari," said another.
Many users also came out in her support, with one saying,"Some Men Can't Digest Successful Women..", while another said,"What is wrong wid the people - just finding chances to prove their patriotism on social media, kabhi kuchh karke dikhao aur firr dusronko bolo (do something for your country first then criticise others)....... they are nowhere where you are now so just do watcha doing. Proud of PeeCee."

Another fan argued: "Guys commenting negative comments: are you out of your mind? It's a tricolour stole/dupatta. People all over India wear this combination on 15th August. This ain't no flag. So when people win matches and wrap the flag around their body and run, that isn't insult? Think before you talk."
This is not the first time, Chopra has made headlines for her choice of dres. Earlier this year, she was shamed for wearing a dress that revealed her knees at a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin.
