It wasn’t long ago that Priyanka Chopra was attacked on social media for her “not-so-proper” attire during her meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The actress chose to wear a dress rather than traditional wear, and she was trolled for that.

Priyanka was taken aback with the backlash, says her mom Madhu Chopra, “Her neckline was right up to her jaw, her hands were covered. They met in the lobby before she was to go for a Baywatch promotional event. She couldn’t have pleaded with the PM to give her two minutes so that she could wear a sari.”

The actress’ mom reveals that even the protocol officer, who welcomed Priyanka at the event, did not find anything wrong with her outfit. “He and his team had no problem. In fact, we got an official communication from the protocol officer later that the PM had no issue with it. But the trolls on social media diluted the whole intent of the meeting,” she says.

Chopra adds that Priyanka could be the last person to be criticised for her dress-sense. “She is a perfectionist to the core and plans her looks days in advance when she has to grace formal and informal occasions and red carpet events. Even her airport look is well planned. She doesn’t even step out of her room unless she is dressed right,” says Chopra.
