Priyanka Chopra, who turned a year older on July 18, continued her birthday celebrations on a yacht in Miami. Pictures of the ‘Desi Girl’ letting her hair down with husband Nick Jonas, mother Madhu Chopra and close friends are being widely shared by fan clubs on social media.
Last year Priyanka released a video, during Diwali, saying that bursting crackers made her asthmatic.
Fans also dug out an old tweet from her Twitter that said she hates smoking and it is ‘yuck’!
For the uninitiated, Priyanka had released a video last year, urging people to not burst crackers on Diwali. The actress, who is asthmatic, said in the clip, “Please meri saans ko berok rakhiye. Diwali pe patakho ko skip kijiye.” She added that the festival should be about “lights and laddoos and love, and not pollution”.
Earlier, Priyanka was slammed for the grand fireworks display after her Christian wedding with Nick. Netizens called her a hypocrite and asked what happened to her asthma and concern for the environment when she lit fireworks to celebrate her own special day.
Last year, Priyanka tweeted an ad campaign in which she revealed that she was diagnosed with asthma at the age of five. She wrote that it could not hold her back from making her dreams come true.
“Those who know me well know that I’m an asthmatic. I mean, what’s to hide? I knew that I had to control my asthma before it controlled me. As long as I’ve got my inhaler, asthma can’t stop me from achieving my goals and living a ‘Berok Zindagi’,” she tweeted.
