Hollywood is considered to be ‘tough crowd’ to impress. We have all seen struggles of popular Bollywood actors and actresses that managed to build a position in the West, such as Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.
Padma Lakshmi, a supermodel, had her own ups and downs creating a place in the international fashion industry and recently faced a silly incident by NY Magazine which she handled very softly!
Do foreign people seem to find differentiating between two Indian faces, really difficult? We cannot forget the time when a paparazzi referred Deepika Padukone as Priyanka Chopra! Deepika found it really ignorant as well as racist on the media’s part. SMH!
Another similar incident has taken place where NY Magazine has tagged supermodel Padma Lakshmi as Priyanka Chopra on Instagram. The black and white photo of Lakshmi has been tagged in the name of Priyanka Chopra instead of her own! But Padma Lakshmi seemed to have handled it really well!
A lot of people commented and shared their views on this little incident. Most of them were shocking and offended. Priyanka and Lakshmi share a heartily bond and they share the same stylist, too. They never fail to applaud each others’ successes every time they get a chance.
Anyway, another independent and successful woman has proved that there are so many amazing ways to answer back to such unacceptable situations. Sarcasm helps!
