Hollywood is suffering from an identity crisis, and we are not talking about its own. Yet again, a popular yet confused media channel has made a big goof up with Deepika Padukone’s name.
Deepik was in the USA few days ago to celebrate the success of her Hollywood debut, ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ and the actress had also attended pre and post-Oscars events.
The paparazzi addressed Deepika as Priyanka Chopra at the Los Angeles International Airport while asking her to pose for the camera.
In a video that captures the incident, we see the paparazzi repeatedly trying to gain Deepika’s attention by calling her ‘Priyanka’ and even saying ‘welcome back’ and posing other questions. The actress doesn’t react and eventually is seen getting into her car.
Check out the video here:
This is not the first time LA media mistook her for PeeCee. A few months back, when Deepika went to the US to attend the premier of xXx, she was addressed as Priyanka by the paparazzi. One of the media posted a video of hers on their YouTube page but with Priyanka’s name on the title and description.
This is really weird, isn’t it?
The goof-up is surprising considering Priyanka and Deepika are both the most popular Indian faces seen in Hollywood film.
‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ marked the debut of Deepika in Hollywood, whereas Priyanka Chopra will soon be seen in ‘Baywatch’ alongside Dwayne Johnson.
