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.

Former Samata Party president and textile revivalist Jaya Jaitly expressed her disappointment on Indian actor Priyanka Chopra's choice of outfit at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

"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.
