Her Comments on Ban on Pakistani Artists in India
While she is being lauded in Hollywood , she was criticised back home for lending her voice out in support of Pakistani artists. After Pakistani artists were banned from working in Bollywood following the attack by Pakistan in Kashmir , Priyanka spoke against the ban.
She said, “It’s tricky because first of all artists and actors are always held responsible for every bigger political agenda that happens in our country. Why are only we reflecting it? Why not businesses, why not doctors, why not politicians,”
She also added, “I am extremely patriotic. So, whatever my government decides is important to keep the country safe. I go with that, but at the same time, I don’t believe that artists are a representation of — at least there hasn’t been an actor who has done something which has harmed someone’s life out of malice or anything.”
