Tanmay Bhat mocks Priyanka Chopra; she’s cool, but fans are irked

Comedian Tanmay Bhat, who received loads of backlash for his snapchat joke on legends Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar some time back, took a dig at Priyanka Chopra.

On Thursday, Tanmay took to Twitter and mocked the ‘Quantico’ actress’ accent. “When I say @priyankachopra's name in my head I now automatically pronounce it like "Priyaaaanka Chopruh," the AIB Roast artist wrote on the microblogging site.

While Priyanka took the comment in her stride and was cool with it, Tanmay managed to irk her fans and faced their wrath.

Priyanka who is witty and has a great sense of humour sweetly responded to Tanmay, “I'm supposed to have the accent @thetanmay what happened to u? Lol.”

However, annoyed fans of the actress started trolling Tanmay, prompting the comedian to tweet, “PC fans, kyu mujhpe chadh rahe ho, it was meant to be a compliment what is wrong with some of you smh.”

Before things took an ugly turn, Priyanka came to the rescue of Tanmay and calmed down her fans. “Guys it was a joke!! From me and him!! Comedy is the smartest form of entertainment! and @thetanmay has it down!xoxo,” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, Priyanka is in the US busy shooting for the second season of her American drama series ‘Quantico’. She will also make her Hollywood debut with Dwayne Johnson starrer ‘Baywatch’ which will release in May next year. She will also make a special appearance in her Marathi production ‘Ventilator’ being directed by Rajesh Mapuskar.
