Mumbai: Ever since we saw Priyanka Chopra in ‘Quantico’s trailer, we have come across a lot of jokes on the actress’ accent. However, the internet memes and jokes didn’t stop the actress from slaying it and conquering the American television.
The actress has proven time and again that she is too busy living the dream life to actually care about silly comments or get offended by jokes. But seems like, Priyanka’s fans aren’t that spontaneous about the trolls aimed at their favourite star.
On Thursday, AIB comedian Tanmay Bhat made a joke on Priyanka’s accent which didn’t go down well with her fans, who slammed the comedian on Twitter.
When I say @priyankachopra's name in my head I now automatically pronounce it like "Priyaaaanka Chopruh"— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 27, 2016
PC fans, kyu mujhpe chadh rahe ho, it was meant to be a compliment what is wrong with some of you smh— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 27, 2016
However, being her peppy self, ‘Baywatch’ star quickly came to Tanmay’s rescue and showed the world how to take a joke.
“Guys it was a joke!! From me and him!! Comedy is the smartest form of entertainment!and @thetanmay has it down!xoxo,” the actress wrote.
Not only that, but the actress also slayed it with her witty comeback.
This isn't the first time that Tanmay has targeted a celebrity. In the past, the comedian gave birth to controversy after he mocked Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar. Seems like Tanmay gets some sort of kick by taking shots at well-known artists. Maybe it's time he stopped his attempts to try and grab attention through a petty source as such.
