Starlet Priyanka Chopra states she wishes to produce a world for her ‘future kids’ where they’re not talking about variety due to the fact that it’s the norm. (May 10).
Padma Lakshmi is not amazed.
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.
Lakshmi hails from Chennai, India, while Chopra was born in Jamshedpur, India.
