New Delhi: After ‘oh-so-colourful’ mehendi and vibrant sangeet ceremony pictures, as the world awaits to see Priyanka Chopra as a bride and American singing sensation Nick Jonas as a groom in a desi avatar, a video showing massive fireworks from the ceremony of December 1, sparked of major trolling. The couple exchanged wedding vows in a Christian ceremony in Udaipur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace and minutes after the Jodhpur sky was lit up with the synchronised firework that was displayed for hours.

Taking note of the bursting of firecrackers as part of her wedding celebrations, Twitterati reminded the actress of her own anti-pollution and asthma campaigns and labeling her as a ‘hypocrite’.
The Bollywood star and UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra just a month ago was actively campaigning for better air quality, pleading her fans to “Skip bursting crackers this Deepawali”, she even admitted being asthmatic and how bursting crackers can affect her and people suffering from asthma. Last month, through a video message, she went on to encourage people to be mindful of animals and people with respiratory problems and not burn crackers on Diwali. She said, “Celebrate with lights and laddoos instead.”
Here are some of the reactions:

Btw, @priyankachopra, could you share tips on how an asthmatic like you, survived the pollution caused by firecrackers at your own wedding? Do you know @ibreathefree? @Cipla_Global maybe had some magic pill? https://t.co/nIPOmJSndx

Not cool, @priyankachopra
You as an asthma patient should have known better than to shoot firecrackers after your wedding. We all need to be responsible even when it's not Diwali. https://t.co/Tu2qQqurMf

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swachh India campaign lends support to the Government of India’s Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM). Helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan, the campaign aims to spread awareness about hygiene and sanitation, the importance of building toilets and making India open defecation free (ODF) by October 2019, a target set by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, when he launched Swachh Bharat Abhiyan in 2014. Over the years, the campaign has widened its scope to cover issues like air pollution, waste management, plastic ban, manual scavenging and menstrual hygiene. The campaign has also focused extensively on marine pollution, clean Ganga Project and rejuvenation of Yamuna, two of India’s major river bodies.
