California: It’s not the first time that Westerners have confused Indian actress Priyanka Chopra with another Asian actress. A recent mess, which left the internet in splits, saw a Twitter user inquiring British actress Jameela Jamil, who comes from Indian and Pakistani heritage, about her separation with singer Nick Jonas who is married to our desi girl, PeeCee.
‘The White Tiger’ actor Priyanka Chopra and ‘The Good Place’ actor Jameela Jamil, who gave the user a hard time telling them apart, surely enjoyed every bit of this madness and just laughed it out.
The post that tickled everyone’s attention, had actor Jameela Jamil tagged, where the user wrote, “wait so did @nickjonas and @jameelajamil get divorced?” Nick is married to Chopra since 2018.

To which, the 35-year-old British actress replied, “A different Indian woman who doesn’t look anything like me. @priyankachopra I believe they are very happy together still.” Priyanka posted a “Lol!” to this confused yet funny comment.
A similar incident had happened in 2019 when a British journalist wrote Jameela’s name as he was talking about Priyanka and named her as ‘The Good Place star’.
On the professional front, Priyanka was recently seen in Ramin Bahrani’s ‘The White Tiger’ and in Robert Rodriguez’s ‘We Can Be Heroes’. She also released her memoir ‘Unfinished’ which is now available on bookstores. Her upcoming projects which await their release are ‘Text For You’, ‘Matrix 4’ and her Prime Video web series ‘Citadel’.
