  • The actress also got herself involved in the Twitter battle with comedian Tanmay Bhatt when he commented on her accent on social media and said, "When I say @priyankachopra’s name in my head I now automatically pronounce it like “Priyaaaanka Chopruh” ”To which the actress replied sarcastically, "I'm supposed to have the accent @thetanmay what happened to u? Lol!" and straightly banged the comedian off the hook.
  • As the actress was working for "Quantico", an international tv show where she is portrayed playing the role of an anti-terrorist officer, the later got herself involved in one more controversy when the actress was seen stopping a nuclear attack in Manhattan just a few days before an India-Pakistan summit and it was displayed in the episode as she finds a "Rudraksha" rosary in the neck of a suspect who was suspected of carrying out the attack to lead points towards Pakistan of the nuclear attack and the actress had to apologize for disrespecting her fans from India and hurting their feelings by downgrading the image of India globally.
