Priyanka Chopra was accused of “encouraging nuclear war” at BeautyCon in Los Angeles.
The Hollywood star was taking part in a Q&A session when she was confronted by a woman, who later named herself on Twitter as Ayesha Malik, who confronted the actress about a tweet she had sent earlier this year.
“It was kind of hard hearing you talk about humanity, because as your neighbor, a Pakistani, I know you’re a bit of a hypocrite,” Malik said.

“You are a Unicef ambassador for peace and you’re encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan. There’s no winner in this.
“As a Pakistani, millions of people like me have supported you in your business of Bollywood.”
She was referring to a tweet send from Priyanka’s Twitter account in February which read “Jai Hind”, meaning “victory to India.”
India and Pakistan have been in conflict over the Kashmir region.

The mic was taken from Malik before her statement was finished.
Priyanke responded to the question, accusing Malik of “venting.”
