Priyanka Chopra has an army of fans and they aren’t here for any casual sexism against her. The actor found a tonne of support on Twitter when a news website ran a story wondering ‘Will Priyanka Chopra continue acting after her marriage to Nick Jonas?’

The Twitter post was hit with severe criticism from Priyanka’s fans and just simply, people who don’t appreciate sexism in any form or manner. “Will Nick jonas continue to sing after marriage??? Please stop with hypocrisy,” wrote a Twitter user on the post while another wondered why it was being made to look like she is marrying ‘the prince of England.’


The news article bases its speculations on the fact that Priyanka quit her movie with Salman Khan, Bharat, due to ‘personal reasons’ since reportedly getting engaged to Nick. It also uses her friendship with the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle as a possible indication of her own career plans. Meghan quit her career as an actor to give her full attention to her work as a member of the British royal family.

However, Priyanka is still a part of Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink and is, quite surprisingly, not Meghan. Priyanka’s fans, disappointed by the post, left several angry comments on Twitter:









According to a report by People, Priyanka and Nick got engaged on her 36th birthday. Bharat director Ali Abbas Zafar also dropped massive hints about the engagement in his tweet on Thursday revealing how Priyanka will no longer be a part of the film.

The two met at the 2017 Met Gala where they represented Ralph Lauren at the red carpet. The rumours about their relationship took flight in May this year when they were spotted together at several occasions. She accompanied him to his cousin’s wedding in New Jersey and he came to India to meet her friends and mom and enjoy a short vacation in Goa with her cousins.
