Priyanka Chopra was once again at the receiving end of online trolls when she donned a tricolour scarf to mark the country’s 70th Independence Day.

The 35-year-old actor had posted a boomerang video on her social media accounts. She is seen sporting a stole resembling the national flag and swaying it in the air.

“Independence Day #Vibes #MyHeartBelongsToIndia #HappyIndependenceDayIndia #JaiHind,” Chopra posted.

But the Internet trolls started tearing into the actor’s choice of clothes, calling the move “shameful” and “insulting” for the country.

“What’s is going on here Priyanka have some respect for national flag of India,” a user wrote.

“She can wear whatever she wants but must choose some decent outfit according to occasion,” another user said.

A troll wrote, “You can’t defend this shameful lady who is destroying our country’s name globally.”

Many, however, came forward in Chopra’s defence.

“What’s up with people… There is nothing wrong in showing love to your country in any way u feel like…,” one wrote.

One of the actor’s fans wrote, “Love you PC… The look suits you! And stop being hypocrites guys… It’s her life, let her decide.”

Chopra was recently slammed for wearing a dress during her meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin.
