Mahika Sharma is upset with the Quantico actress – Mahika Sharma accuses Priyanka Chopra of not showing any emotion for Assam flood victims
Model and actress Mahika Sharma who has worked in projects in Assam and Hindi TV industry is upset with actress Priyanka Chopra. The Bollywood diva who has been appointed as Assam Tourism brand ambassador has shown no interest or posted anything on social media about the Assam flood crisis that has engulfed the state. The floods have affected Dhemaji and Majuli the most. So far, 44 people have lost their lives and around 17 lakh people are affected. In 2016, Priyanka was appointed as Assam Tourism’s brand ambassador. We know that the actress has been out of India due to her foreign commitments. She is presently shooting for ‘A Kid Like Jake’ and ‘Isn’t It Romantic’. Clearly, the Bollywood diva’s apathy towards Assam’s plight has not been taken lightly by some.
Mahika said in a statement told ABP Live, “Priyanka is my aspiration and inspiration. She is really a humble person. But I’m very upset with her. Because she owns some power to help the poor who are victims of Assam floods. She didn’t even show any emotions for the state even on the social networking site. This is what not only me but anyone from Assam would be upset. I don’t wish she takes my word personally but understand me and Assam people’s emotions and excitement from her being associated with the state.” We know that Priyanka who is also an UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador posted her travels and experiences in South Africa extensively on her social media handles.
The extent of the flood is huge. Around one lakh people are living in the relief camps spread across the state. The National Disaster Relief Force along with its state counterpart was rushed to the aid of the affected. The situation is quite grim. We feel that since Priyanka is now back, she might try to spread awareness on the same. Mahika Sharma has worked in a number of Assamese films and was seen in the hit TV series, FIR as well.
