Priyanka Chopra brutally trolled for her ‘My dad used to sing in mosque’ comment

Must Read

Priyanka Chopra Jonas created headlines once again and this time for her interview with Oprah Winfrey. During the interaction, the actor spoke at length about her memoir Unfinished, her Bollywood career, Nick Jonas, family and more. In one of the sequences, Oprah spoke about spirituality in India and PeeCee stated, “I grew up in a convent school. I was aware of Christianity. My dad used to sing in a mosque, I was aware of Islam. I grew up in a Hindu family, I was aware of that.”

Priyanka’s statement on her dad Ashok Chopra singing at a mosque making her aware of Islamic religion didn’t go well with the netizens. Several took to their Twitter page and gave the actor brickbats for what she spoke. One of the users wrote, “My dad also used to sing in a Mosque. Nothing else happened, people just thought he was very weird for doing that since Masjid mein antakshari nahi khelte.”

While another Twitterati wrote, “I think Priyanka Chopra is confused between dargah and a mosque.”

Check out a few tweets below:

Oprah discussed with Priyanka that reading her book Unfinished made her reflect on her own trips to India and said, “One of the things that were so powerful is the spiritual energy there. The sense of connectedness between people and prayer.”

Adding that “it is all so present”, she asked Priyanka whether she had a spiritual foundation growing up. To this Priyanka replied, “I think in India it`s hard not to, you’re right with the swirling number of religions that we have that live within the country as well. I grew up in a convent school when I went to school I was aware of Christianity, my dad used to sing in a mosque, (so) I was aware of Islam, I grew up in a Hindu family I was aware of that. So, spirituality is such a large part of India that you can’t ignore it.”

On her family life, she said, “Also my family really believed in having a higher power and having a sense of faith. This is again something my dad used to tell me, he was like basically, religion is all a way to get to supreme power and every religion has a different face to the same direction where we`re going – whatever your face is, whatever your version of that is, its just a means to an end. And so, I am a Hindu and I pray, I have a temple in my home, I do it as often as I can. But at the same time to me I am truly more spiritual I feel – I am a believer of the fact that a higher power does exist and I like to have faith in that.”
