Bollywood megastar Priyanka Chopra is not getting off easy for her warmongering tweet. Now, Turkish actress, Esra Bilgic is calling out the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador. Is this a Priyanka Chopra and Esra Bilgic row now?
The Turkish model and actress schooled Priyanka on the fact that a UN goodwill ambassador has no business advocating war. She called out warmongering for what it is, and it’s not patriotism.
Esra Bilgic Responds to Priyanka
Here’s what Esra said to Priyanka on her Instagram:
“Be patriotic doesn’t mean you should encourage war. You shouldn’t belong in a conversation concerning war as a UN goodwill ambassador.”
Who is Esra Bilgic?
The Turkish actress Esra Bilgic, is best known for her famous role of Halime Sultan in the globally famous period drama Dirilis Ertugrul. The drama has been dubbed as the ‘Turkish Game of Thrones‘.
Halime Sultan was all regal grace, expressing disappointment on how PeeCee shut down Pakistani-origin hair blogger Ayesha Malik for her question about a public tweet.
“You were so disrespectful against a woman who just asked you a question about a statement that you shared with millions of people on your Twitter account”
Priyanka Chopra’s Public Persona Takes a Hit at BeautyCon
At BeatyCon, Pakistani-American Ayesha Malik called out UNGWA Priyanka Chopra for warmongering following the Balakot airstrikes. The incident had also led to the capture of Indian Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman.
Here’s what she tweeted back then:
Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces 🇮🇳 🙏🏽

The Bollywood actress applauded the Indian Air Force violating Pakistani airspace and dropping bombs when the two nations were already on the brink of war.
Priyanka basically appeared dismissive of the audience member. Her first mistake was looking down on her with her phrasing:
“Whenever you’re done venting.”
Aisha Malik later responded with;
“Sorry, didn’t realize that speaking on a humanitarian crisis was ‘venting‘”

Priyanka for her part tried to justify her stance by saying she is ‘patriotic‘. She then proceeded to say ‘we’re all here for love‘.
Of course, that statement was in sharp contrast to her very public tweet that called for war.
Look at the how the mic got snatched from this girl who raised her voice against War!#PriyankaChopra everybody! Your #UNAmbassador for Peace – What crap!
The girl wouldn't be yelling if the mic wasn't snatched from her!
Share this as much as possible! pic.twitter.com/PC63JSNni3

The incident was following by global backlash against the Quantico actress. Mostly, nationalistic trolls and Bakhts came to her rescue, but she still lost three million followers on Instagram.
