Priyanka Chopra, who is the tourism ambassador for Assam has lately been facing backlash for her silence on floods ravaging the state. Her silence has bothered many, including actor Mahika Sharma who has appeared in television shows and Hindi and Assamese cinema, reported Firstpost.
Mahika expressed her disappointment in Chopra and criticised her for not even pushing out a word concerning the people of Assam.
Mahika told ABP Live, “Priyanka is my aspiration and inspiration. She is really a humble person. But I’m very upset with her. Because she owns some power to help the poor who are victims of Assam floods. She didn’t even show any emotions for the state even on the social networking site. This is what not only me but anyone from Assam would be upset.”
“I don’t wish she takes my word personally but understand me and Assam people’s emotions and excitement from her being associated with the state,” she added.
While Priyanka has been busy shooting for her second Hollywood film, Silas Howard's A Kid Like Jake, in the USA, she has returned to India to celebrate her birthday with friends and family.
She has been vocal about multiple issues in the recent past, including the lack of diversity in Oscars and women empowerment in Africa.
