An online petition has been filed in Pakistan against Priyanka Chopra to remove her as the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador after she made tweets on India’s recent surgical strikes on a terrorist base. Priyanka Chopra was made the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in December 2016.
Apparently, this petition has been started by people who are miffed with Priyanka Chopra for congratulating the Indian Air Force after air strikes across the Line of Control after the Indian Air Force conducted multiple air strikes in Pakistan’s Balakot.
“War between two nuclear powers can only lead to destruction and death. As goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, Priyanka Chopra was supposed to stay neutral and peaceful but her tweet in favour of Indian arm forces after they invaded Pakistan airspace shows otherwise. She doesn’t deserve this title anymore,” the petition reads on website Avaaz.org. At the time of filing this report, the petition had received more than two thousand signatures.
However, until now, there has no reaction regarding this petition from both Priyanka Chopra as well as UNICEF.
On the personal front, Priyanka was recently in Delhi along with her husband, Nick Jonas for her brother, Siddharth Chopra, and his fiancee Ishita Kumar’s Roka ceremony.
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra has been busy promoting her latest film Isn’t It Romantic which released in the United States on February 13, 2019, by Warner Bros. Pictures, and in international territories by Netflix on February 28, 2019. She is currently working on Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink. The film is based on the life of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and died at an early age. In the film, Priyanka will be seen alongside Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf.
Co-produced by Purple Pebble Pictures along with Siddharth Roy Kapur Roy Kapur Films and Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Productions, The Sky Is Pink is slated to release on October 11, 2019.
