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.”
