Bollywood actress, Priyanka Chopra, has often been in hot waters for making controversial statements. Recently, in the promo of her upcoming interview with talk show host Oprah Winfrey, Priyanka claimed that her late father Ashok Chopra used to sing in a mosque. Her statement caused a social media outrage with many questioning the former Miss World as to which mosque allowed her dad to sing.
As Priyanka talked about her personal life, memoir ‘Unfinished’ and growing up as a child in India, she remarked ‘my dad used to sing in a mosque, (so) I was aware of Islam’. Priyanka’s remarks instantly went viral on social media, with all kinds of comments questioning her lack of knowledge since singing in a mosque is not permissible.
Some users however came to Priyanka’s rescue and stated that her father used to sing Qawwalis at dargahs and Priyanka made a wrong choice of words.
