Padma Lakshmi is not amazed.

The longtime “Top Chef” host, 49, burnt The New Yorker publication on Instagram Sunday for confusing her with fellow Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, 37.

Lakshmi shared a screenshot from the official New Yorker Instagram account, where the publication tagged a photo of Lakshmi as Chopra for its celeb cartoon takeover sector. The New Yorker has actually since been erased its post.

” Thank you to the remarkable ‘@nydailynews’ for the shoutout,” Lakshmi captioned the post, deliberately tagging The New York City Daily News instead of the New Yorker.

She continued, “I understand to some we all look alike, but (shrug).”

Lakshmi included the hashtags #justindianthings and #desilife, a term utilized to describe the people, culture and way of life of South Asian countries Pakistan, Indian and Bangladesh.

The mix-up received numerous puzzled reactions, including one from starlet Natalie Portman, who liked the New Yorker’s original Instagram photo. She commented on Lakshmi’s post, “Oh no.”

Chopra has not responded to the mistake yet. USA TODAY connected to her associates for comment.
