A Congress leader mixed up the names of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra at a rally, causing huge embarrassment to his party as the video went viral on social media and inspired memes and jokes.
Priyanka Chopra trended as thousands of tweets poured in after the video was shared online.
In the video, the Congress leader, Surender Kumar, can be heard shouting and gesturing to the crowd, urging it to repeat after him: "Sonia Gandhi zindabad, Congress party zindabad, Rahul Gandhi zindabad, Priyanka Chopra zindabad."
Immediately, the Congress's Delhi unit chief Subhash Chopra, who was standing next to the leader, is seen turning to him in apparent surprise over the error.

The Congress was trolled on Twitter soon after the video was shared.
"Thank God!! Rahul G either didn't attend or skipped that rally or was not invited for that rally. Surely, they would have shouted #RahulBajaj zindabad," a Twitter user posted, referring to industrialist Rahul Bajaj, whose name was also trending over a comment he made to BJP chief Amit Shah.
"Since when has Priyanka Chopra joined the Congress?" another Twitter user posted.
