Priyanka Chopra trolled for saying her father sang at mosqueAbdul Gh Lone 22 March 2021 0 COMMENTS
Memes on Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra’s remarks about how she was aware of Islam while growing up have topped Twitter trends.
“I was aware of Christianity because I grew up in convent school,” Priyanka said in her upcoming interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey. “My dad used to sing in a mosque and I was aware of Islam.”
Priyanka was questioned about her spiritual foundation, which she has written about in her memoir Unfinished. The actor revealed that she had a secular upbringing as her father believed all religions are “headed in the same direction”.
Priyanka’s statement didn’t sit well with a number of people, who called her out on social media for knowing “nothing about Islam”.
