Priyanka Chopra Jonas has been a vocal supporter of SS Rajamouli’s film RRR, even attending a screening of the film in the US and hosting Ram Charan and his wife Upasana at her residence in Los Angeles. However, during a recent interview with the podcast channel Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard, Priyanka mistakenly referred to the Telugu film as a ‘Tamil film’.
Priyanka was correcting the interviewer who had referred to RRR as a Bollywood movie. When Dax Shepard compared Bollywood to the 50s of Hollywood, Priyanka agreed, saying that it was once controlled by a few big studios and actors, but has now evolved with streaming giving access to more content creators. She then went on to mention RRR as an example of a blockbuster Tamil film, comparing it to the Avengers.
Given that Priyanka’s first film as an actor was in Tamil, titled Tamizhan, starring Vijay in the lead role, it is unlikely that she does not know the difference between the different industries down South. Fans have given her the benefit of the doubt and chalked up her mistake to a slip of the tongue.
