Fans react to Priyanka Chopra and Tanmay Bhatt Banter on Twitter

Priyanka Chopra has made it big in Hollywood, so much so she's doing more shooting for foreign shows and movies that she’s hardly ever home working with B-town folks. There is no news in that, of course.

The other thing that happened over the recent years since Piggy Chops headed to Hollywood is that she got herself a brand new accent. Good for her, too, Quantico is doing pretty well; it is the second most popular show in Germany and she's receiving offers for Hollywood movies and American shows. She even stole the show at the Oscars this year.

Given her Hollywood success and transformation, Tanmay Bhat had posted a joke of Twitter saying that every time he thinks of Priyanka Chopra he pronounces her name with an American accent.

PC was quick to reply to Tanmay and shut him down well. Her witty response only got Tanmay to say “Slay”. It was clearly a perky exchange of comments.

However, Priyanka Chopra fans didn't take this seemingly friendly cross-talk too well. Some of the tweeters were just confused as to what had happened and did not know how to react. PC fans were offended and they made no efforts to restrain their emotions.

When the matter got too much for Tanmay to keep his lips sealed, he spoke up and told her fans that he meant it as a compliment.

Being the smart woman that Priyanka Chopra is, she had Tanmya's back and made sure to tell her fans that he was only joking and meant no harm. PC also went ahead to convey that for her "comedy is the smartest form of entertainment"

It's not the first time comments made by AIB members have backfired. A few months back, Tanmay had got himself in trouble for making fun of Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar in a Snapchat video.
