You dense, ignorant imbecile: Priyanka Chopra’s ‘inaccurate’ Sikkim comments attract online backlash

Actor Priyanka Chopra landed herself in a controversy after saying in an interview at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) that Sikkim is a state “troubled by insurgency” and Pahuna, a film produced by her company, is the first to come out of the region. People were quick to point out that Sikkim remains “one of the most peaceful states” in India and also named some of the compelling films that came out of the region. Speaking in an interview after Pahuna received a standing ovation at TIFF, Priyanka told ET Canada, “Sikkim is a small state in the North-east of India which never had a film industry or anyone who made a film from the region. This is the first film ever that’s come out of that region, because it’s very troubled with insurgency and troubling situations.”
