Meeting Wafaa left Priyanka Chopra with a sense of pride for her job.

Priyanka Chopra on Tuesday shared a video of a young Syrian refugee who despite living in a Jordanian camp for other displaced families like hers, remains a huge fan of Bollywood films, especially those starring Katrina Kaif.

Priyanka translated the girl’s message, and added, “This is a special shout out to one of India’s biggest movie stars. @katrinakaif this video is just for you, all the way from Za’atari Refugee camp in Jordan.”

“This is Wafaa, one of your biggest fans and her message roughly translated is ‘I love Katrina Kaif a lot and I am one of her fans. I have watched all her movies and never missed one, even if a movie is played more than once I watch it. I love you Katrina and love your beauty,’” she wrote.

Priyanka also said that she’d been told to convey messages of love “to these Massive Indian film superstars, who are favourites at Za’atari... SHAHRUKH KHAN, SALMAN KHAN, AKSHAY KUMAR, KAREENA KAPOOR and ANUSHKA SHARMA.”

Priyanka admitted that listening to what Wafaa had to say “was something I honestly did not expect...but it made my day.”

It left Priyanka with a sense of pride for her job. “Who would think that what we do as entertainers would give people a sense of hope, relief and escape in such dire circumstances,” she wrote.”This post is for all my colleagues in the Entertainment Business around the world... know what we do sometimes has such an (sic) deep impact on people’s lives and goes beyond just the mere entertainment people look at us for.”

Priyanka was visiting Jordan as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador. “I think the world needs to understand that this is not just a Syrian refugee crisis, it’s a humanitarian crisis,” she told AP.
