Politician Jaya Jaitly Upset with Priyanka Chopra's 'British Aristocrat' Dress at the Royal Wedding
"How sad an Indian actor (Priyanka Chopra) attending the royal wedding in UK should dress like a British aristocrat at Ascot rather than represent a free and independent India in a beautiful sari," Jaitly tweeted on May 19.

"How sad an Indian actor attending the royal wedding in UK should dress like a British aristocrat at Ascot rather than represent a free and independent India in a beautiful sari," Jaitly tweeted on May 19, the day when ex-American actress Meghan Markle wed British Royal Prince Harry.

And while this isn't the first time someone has expressed discontent on social media at actress Priyanka Chopra's sartorial choice, but it surely is a first when the global icon, who attended her long-time friend Meghan Markle's wedding sporting a Vivienne Westwood lilac dress suit, was defended by netizens for not having picked a 'saree' for the royal ceremony.
In fact, social media users trolled Jaya Jaitly for having put out the 'wasteful' tweet and gave her lessons on what all Priyanka has been doing to put India on the world map.
she is not there to represent, she's attending her friend's wedding. make your daughter wear saari. actually don't. let her wear whatever she wants— ¯_(ツ)_/¯ (@Sense8Lady) May 20, 2018
Completely unfair criticism of a woman who has done enough and more to put India on the World Map. If she is creating an international image for herself, how is that sad? She isn’t doing anything dishonourable. Would you ask why Modi doesn’t go touring in Kurta pyjama?— Srinivas Ramamohan (@srini_ramamohan) May 20, 2018
@Jayajaitly What a shame that most of our male politicians wear a suit on all foreign travels where they represent our country. They should wear hand woven dhoti kurta or an angvastram instead. A shawl on top to ward off the cold would be perfect— Kanishka Chaudhry (@kchaudhry2010) May 22, 2018
How does wearing saree make you more of an Indian? What a wasteful argument.. Women like you makes it difficult for other women to flourish because the only weapon weapon is saree & sanskaar...— Poonam Dhiman (@_PD_____) May 20, 2018
intellect, independent, empowered is the new attire, not saree!!!
