If you think politicians are the only people who humiliate India by their corruption and trash talk, you are wrong! Bollywood actors have proved they are also capable of humiliating India equally on international forum.
Priyanka Chopra who recently gave an interview to ET Canada media, was talking about her new and upcoming movie Pahuna, she described her movie as one of the first from the state of Sikkim. “Sikkim is a small state in the North-east of India which never had a film industry or anyone who made a film from the region. This is the first film ever that’s come out of that region, because it’s very troubled with insurgency and troubling situations.”
This statement of hers became viral within minutes and people started trolling her for her ill informed knowledge. The truth is, there is absolutely no problem of insurgency in Sikkim and is regarded as one of the most peaceful states. The other shocking part is she is the Ambassador of Assam and has no idea about Sikkim and calls it small state with insurgency affected.
Her claim that her movie is the first about Sikkim is totally FALSE. Although Sikkim film industry is naive, they have made number of movies like Katha and Acharya, Dhokbu, which have received wide appreciation.
Sikkim is one of the most peaceful states, dear Priyanka. We don't have any insurgency here. Plz comment responsibly.@priyankachopra

The minute her comments triggered the NE people, Priyanka Chopra’s mother apologised for her irresponsible comment and asked media not to make it big news. But it took hours for Priyanka Chopra tender apology to the Sikkim government and people of India.
Looks like Bollywood actors who spend most time enjoying in foreign countries have very little knowledge about their own country. Hope these people read about the background of the person/state or country before they use it for money making!
