- Tanmay Bhat joked about Priyanka Chopra's accent on Twitter
- Priyanka Chopra didn't seem to mind
- However, the actress' fans were not as pleased
After the AIB member complained...
PC fans, kyu mujhpe chadh rahe ho, it was meant to be a compliment what is wrong with some of you smh— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 27, 2016
...Priyanka bailed him out:
It began with this joke from Tanmay, despite Priyanka's chill response:
When I say @priyankachopra's name in my head I now automatically pronounce it like "Priyaaaanka Chopruh"— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 27, 2016
Priyanka's fans were neither chill nor amused.
Tanmay Bhat is, or should be, used to people not finding his jokes funny. The humour in AIB's 'Roast' of actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor last year escaped many. Months ago, Tanmay was virtually lynched on Twitter for a Snapchat video ridiculing Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar.
Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra has reverted to being a Videsi Girl and will be co-hosting the annual Global Citizen Festival with Usher, Hugh Jackman and Salma Hayek.
