VANCOUVER DESI

Redditors in India don’t seem too pleased with Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra.

The actress and singer hosted a much-anticipated AMA (Ask Me Anything) on the user-generated social networking site Reddit.com Wednesday.

In the introduction she listed off her busy schedule, which includes the recent release of her music video I Can’t Make You Love Me, filming for a movie in Europe, attending a family wedding in the U.S., all while travelling back and forth to India.

“But I’m taking time off from all of that to have a conversation with all of you,” she wrote. “I’m here to entertain, but for now … dare I say it … ask me anything.”

While the AMA started out comfortably, with Chopra answering questions about the post-production of her Mary Kom biopic and revealing that she hates the gym and loves Nutella, some believe it went downhill when more hard-hitting questions came up.

Once the session came to a close, many users accused the actress of running away from the Q&A and failing to answer tougher questions, like one about an Indian street being named after her late father, her endorsement of creams that make your skin lighter and whether or not she’s had plastic surgery.

One user’s unanswered question about the Mumbai street named after her father made it to the top comments.

“What contributions has your father made that a road was renamed after him and not after countless other people who strived and died for India? What made you decide to nominate him and not other people for such a thing? I as a citizen of this city would like to know from you since the whole deal of renaming a city road unnecessarily is sketchy and shady and reeks of corruption,” the question reads.

But as the question went unanswered, other users commented and insisted she would never respond, which lead others to believe her AMA was instead being answered by a “media team” and not Chopra herself.

One Redditor took to Imgur.com to call Chopra a “scumbag,” claiming she didn’t “reply to anyone.”

Indian news sites and media seemed to side with the starlet, shaming the nasty and critical online trolls. Rediff.com called her AMA “a nightmare” in which she was “inundated with rude, impolite and, at times, downright insulting questions,” while IBNLive called it “a flop show.”
