Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat shared a picture with Priyanka Chopra's husband Nick Jonas, which went viral
Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat last month wrote an opinion piece criticising Priyanka Chopra after the Indian actress was called a 'hypocrite' by a Pakistani woman, who was present at a public event in Los Angeles.
The woman also accused the actress of "encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan" while she spoke from the audience at the Beautycon event in the US. Priyanka on February 26 had taken to Twitter to congratulate the Indian Air Force after Indian fighter jets attacked the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM)'s terrorist camp at Balakot in Pakistan. "Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces," Priyanka's tweet read.
In the piece, Mehwish said Priyanka should not be using her voice to legitimise a regime opposed to the values she claims to represent. She had accused Priyanka Chopra of encouraging war despite being goodwill brand ambassador of the UN.
Now cut to present, Mehwish Hayat recently posted a picture where she is standing next to Priyanka Chopra's husband Nick Jonas at the US Open's Men's Semi-Final match, which has now gone viral.
This picture was clicked when they went to watch the match between Rafael Nadal and Matteo Berrettini at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.
Mehwish wrote, "Guess who I ran into at the US Open Men's Semi Finals in New York! One thing we both agreed on was that we were both rooting for @rafaelnadal !✌@nickjonas @usopen @emirates."

Mehwish Hayat has been in the news for urging and slamming Bollywood and Hollywood films to stop stereotyping her country (Pakistan) and creating a negative image of them through movies.
A few weeks ago, she even pointed out that the Alia Bhatt's song Prada by The Doorbeen was a copy of an old Pakistani song.
