The comparisons between Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone multiplied when both travelled West and kickstarted their Hollywood careers. Recently they attended the Met Gala and it was the battle of who wore their attire better. While Deepika was seen in a Tommy Hilfiger slip dress while Priyanka wore the longest trench coat styled-gown by Ralph Lauren. 
 
On two occasions, the American paparazzi mistook Deepika for PeeCee at the LA airport. 
 
When Deepika was asked about this at an event, Deepika said, "Absolutely. It's not just me being offended. Everyone should be offended. It is not just ignorance, it is racist. Two people of the same colour aren't the same. You should educate them and not encourage them."
 
When Priyanka was asked about the same thing, she mirrored Deepika's comments and said, "That was unfair and a serious case of ignorance. It's not right, every brown girl does not look the same. Indians constitute one-fifth of the world's population and the representation of our prolific film industry in world cinema is our responsibility. We have to put ourselves out there."
 
She does, however, add that the American media has been very encouraging and accepting of them. She said, "Just because I am a big star in India, doesn't mean I should be treated like one in every country. I haven't seen the American media as accepting of many Indian actors as they are with me. They are wonderful with me!"
 
Meanwhile, Priyanka will next be seen in Baywatch which is slated to release on June 2, 2017, in India.

Priyanka said this before Deepika's statement. Plus how many times will pinkvilla post this article just to get Priyanka bashed? not that there's anything wrong in what she said but haters are obsessed with bashing her.

I like PC but she needs to act more modest . Let others praise you for a change.

i really think its a case of ignorance and doesnt have anthing to do with race (deepika and priyanka are both bollywood actresses who crossed over into hollywood tv/ films..and both their names end with ka?) because they dont confuse freida pinto or mindy lahiri or hannah simone or even lilly singh with priyanka or deepika. they are all brown girls too but they dont live in india. otherwise priyanka would have been called freida when she first started working in the US.

Again blowing her own trumpet.

Love you Priyanka

Good answer pc well said unlike dp

this is what we expect from a genuinely human being who exists in this nature and I was never ever pc fan but this is the reason it is very hard to dislike/hate/opposed her statements,pc said it everything about us media and indian actor recognition in us...pc is smart and intellectual at the same time.

and nobody from bollywood so far did as much hard work as pc is doing in us,pc u deserve every bit of success...

Irfaan Khan, Om Puri did much better work in Hollywood.

you are absolutely correct! so did shabana......but priyanka (after aishwariya) is the first to occupy the glamour star space which garners more eyeballs and fame! if priyanka were to choose script with substance in hollywood(if some came her way), there would be no stopping her. she is extremely popular already.

Priyanka gave the statement before Deepika. Also, next time provide the video of Priyanka. It brings things more in context. It's not really racism, its more ignorance like Priyanka said. Americans have been very accepting of both Deepika and Priyanka. Even in India Raveena and Twinkle would be confused, that wasn't racism. Anyway, Deepika has only done XxX anyway, she shouldn't expect to be massive in the USA anyway.

Why do you hate DP so much?

PC had said this before dp's statement..but the media has to mix things

Pc throwing shade at Deepika. Deepika is pretty and acts well in movies but pc is hot!
