“With due respect, Priyanka Chopra. Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy is a Pakistani first just to brush up your knowledge. Much like the way you flaunt your Indian nationality whenever you get the opportunity before claiming to be a South Asian,” tweeted Adnan as he showed his displeasure at the actress’s choice of words.

Several netizens also took to social media to respond to the post, but Priyanka has yet to comment on Adnan's post, according to reports

Meanwhile, Priyanka is busy promoting her upcoming film 'Love Again' which is set to release in May. The movie also stars Sam Heughan, Russell Tovey, Omid Djalili, Celia Imrie, and Celine Dion.
