Priyanka Chopra rips into Mallika Sherawat for calling India ‘regressive’
Mallika Sherawat’s statement that India is a “regressive nation for women” has certainly not gone down well with Priyanka Chopra, who calls Mallika’s view extreme misrepresentation.

Former Miss World Priyanka Chopra condemned her fellow actress Mallika Sherawat for calling India a "regressive nation for women" on an international platform.

Priyanka is "highly offended" by the Murder girl's statement at the recently concluded 66th Cannes International Film Festival.

"I think we are a progressive nation. I disagree that we are a regressive nation. We are all sitting here and talking about educating the girl child, taking our country forward. I think it's a misrepresentation of what our great nation is on the world platform," said the actress Monday at the launch of a mobile application by Unicef, of which she is an ambassador.

"It was something of which I felt extremely offended by," she added.

Calling Mallika Sherawat's statement an "extreme misrepresentation" of India and "unfair", Priyanka Chopra said: "When it comes to Mallika's statements, I think they were very callous and I don't agree with her. It was upsetting for me as a woman. It was upsetting for me as a girl who comes from India. I think it was extreme misrepresentation of our nation. I don't think it's fair."

Hailing from a Jat family in Haryana, 36-year-old Mallika Sherawat made her debut in Bollywood in 2003 with "Khwahish". Later, she went on to do international projects like Jackie Chan-starrer 2005 film "The Myth", followed by "Hisss" and "Politics of Love".
