The day when Priyanka Chopra fed the underprivileged

After a soiree earlier this week, Priyanka Chopra ensured that her team distributed the leftover food to the under privileged instead of throwing it away.

When Priyanka Chopra was awarded the Padma Shri in April this year, she wanted to throw a party for popular personalities from the media industry. But her plans didn’t materialise due to time constraints — she had to travel to the US to finish working on her international project. However, she hosted the get-together in Delhi last week.

The party also gave the actor a chance to indulge in some social service. Apparently, a large quantity of food was left over after the dinner. Usually, the caterers throw the food away, but Priyanka didn’t allow that to happen. She ensured her team distributed the food to the underprivileged. A source close to the actor says, “Priyanka is particular about not wasting food. After the party ended, she asked her team to pack the leftover food and distribute it among the underprivileged. Her staff members gave the food to slum dwellers in the locality.”

We tried contacting Priyanka, but she remained unavailable for a comment.
