Is Mrs. Jonas going to chime in at any point? I’m just curious. This is very much giving me shakira during the Beirut devastation vibes. Silence.

“Before trying to get your “activism” points maybe do some research,” wrote one user, while one shared: “She already did way before while you were still sleeping on the matter. Are u picking up on every other Indian celebrity like this???”

“Priyanka Chopra has already shown support for farmers back in december, and is one of the few mainstream actors to speak up . Odd that you would single out someone who was one of the first to raise attention to this,” shared a user.

Last week, Mia came out in support of the farmers, tweeting: “What in the human rights violations is going on?! They cut the internet around New Delhi?! #FarmersProtest.”

On allegations that foreign celebrities were being paid to tweet in favour of the farmers, she retorted: “Paid actors, huh? Quite the casting director, I hope they’re not overlooked during awards season. I stand with the farmers. #FarmersProtest.”

Mia’s tweet came after posts by international pop sensation Rihanna and Greta Thunberg expressing concern for the protesting farmers.

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Disha Vakani aka Daya ben was a part of THIS Priyanka Chopra movie

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is the favourite of many and is undoubtedly the best comedy show. It has also been doing quite well on the TRP charts. The show began in 2008 and people still love watching all the repeat episodes of the show while having their breakfast. It has been more than 10 years but the show has maintained its charm. This the longest-running show on television and fans have been loving the show since its first episode. All the characters from the show are loved by the fans and have become a household name. Disha Vakani has been the most loved and has a huge fan following. She was the soul of the show. However, she had been on a maternity break and has not returned back for so many years. Fans have been missing hearing, ‘Hey maa, Mataji’ from her and also her world-famous Garba in the Gokuldham society. We had recently reported that Dayaben had been a part of many Bollywood films like Jodha Akbar and Devdas.

The film released just a few days before Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah began. The film released on July 4, 2008 but was a flop. It did not receive great response from the audience as well as the critics. Also Read – Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah: Did you know Dilip Joshi was initially not supposed to play Jethalal?
