Priyanka Chopra accused of immodesty for showing legs in photo with Indian P.M.

Megastar actress Priyanka Chopra has been bombarded with accusations of immodesty after sharing a picture of herself meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi this week. In a post made to Instagram, the former Miss World competition winner and star of ABC’s Quantico could be seen sitting with Modi after the two took advantage of an opportunity to meet while in Berlin, where their paths crossed. Chopra was there promoting Baywatch, in which she stars.

 

Perhaps unsurprisingly, conservative users on social media took exception to the photo. Some complained that the 34-year-old’s dress showed too much of her legs, and accused her of forgetting her Indian heritage. Other users even complained about Chopra crossing her legs for the photo, claiming that in so doing she had shown the prime minister a lack of respect.

 

In India, many consider showing one’s legs to be immodest. Just last year, Indian Culture Minister Maneesh Sharma made headlines when he said that female tourists should avoid wearing short dresses or skirts “for their own safety.”

Chopra, however, wasn’t willing to be cowed by the criticism. Just a few hours after her initial photo with the Modi stirred up a social media storm, Chopra shared another photo of herself with her mom — both of them sitting with their legs exposed.

 

Fortunately for Chopra, it appears that being a bad-ass runs in the family.
