Priyanka Chopra was as calm as a cucumber at the Beautycon event in Los Angeles on Saturday night when a Pakistani woman yelled at her and claimed she was a hypocrite. The incident took place when Priyanka was chatting about various subjects from women empowerment to beauty to her love for the nation. The latter, however, came up when a Pakistani woman present in the audience called out the actress for her tweet where she hailed the Indian Army, back in March.

In a video, which has since gone viral, the woman can be heard speaking in a high pitch and accusing Priyanka of "encouraging war between India and Pakistan". An eyewitness told E! News that the woman questioned Priyanka on her role as a United Nations Goodwill ambassador and her controversial tweet in March, where she wrote, "Jai Hind (Long live India) #IndianArmedForces." 

An unfazed Priyanka responded calmly, "I have many, many friends from Pakistan and I am from India. War is not something I’m really fond of but I am patriotic, so I’m sorry if I hurt sentiments to people who do love me and have loved me.” She continued, "But I think that all of us have a, sort of, middle ground that we all have to walk. Just like you probably do as well. The way that you came at me right now... girl, don't yell.  We're all here for love." 

The video was shared on Twitter by user @itsnotkadi. Check it out below: 

At the event, Priyanka also encouraged women to empower each other. "I realised many, many years ago, the more I champion women in my own small way, maybe I’ll be able be able to create a world, around me at least, where women run the show. Because we kinda do it really well," the actress said.
