The foreign media in the US multiple times has mistaken Deepika Padukone for Priyanka Chopra.
A foreign paparazzo constantly referring to Deepika as “Priyanka, Priyanka” while she makes her way out of an airport in the US has apparently disturbed her.
“To me it’s racist and ignorant. And as a fellow Indian, you (the media) should also be not very happy about. I think just because people have similar skin tones, doesn’t mean they are same people”, said Deepika in a media interview.
Deepika was also mistaken for Priyanka Chopra, who headlines the show Quantico, while promoting her Hollywood debut xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage abroad.
