A few Pakistani celebrities, including Adnan Siddiqui and Goher Mumtaz, expressed their disapproval of Chopra by referring to her as “South Asian” as opposed to a Pakistani, despite the fact that most people admired her affection for her “friend.”

“With due respect, Priyanka Chopra, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy is a Pakistani first, just to brush up on your knowledge,” began Siddiqui in a tweet. “Much like the way you flaunt your Indian nationality whenever you get the opportunity before claiming to be a South Asian,” continued the Mom actor.

Mumtaz, a musician from Pakistan, added his voice to the criticism and urged Chopra to be more politically sensitive by mentioning Obaid-Chinoy’s citizenship.

The Teri Yaad singer said, “It’s a great accomplishment, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, but it would be wonderful if you [Priyanka Chopra] could write Pakistani director.” “Indians are great people, they wouldn’t mind you for not being politically correct for a bit,” he continued.
