Tanmay Bhat’s dig at Priyanka Chopra’s accent is baseless, here’s why!

Hope you are reading this Tanmay Bhat…

Eversince Priyanka Chopra made her Hollywood ambitions public and became a rising star there, everybody suddenly developed a deep disdain for her accent. Kareena Kapoor Khan had bitchily asked on Koffee With Karan, “I wonder where Priyanka got her accent from?” Today Tanmay Bhat too mocked her accent. In both the cases, the actress showed them their rightful place. She replied on Kareena’s comment saying, “I want to tell Kareena that I got my accent from the same place where her boyfriend got his.” As for Bhat, she literally saved him from getting trolled once again by asking her fans to chill. First she replied with, “I’m supposed to have the accent @thetanmay what happened to u? Lol” and then she went on to save his a** saying, “Guys it was a joke!! From me and him!! Comedy is the smartest form of entertainment!and @thetanmay has it down!xoxo.” But what we don’t understand is why make such a fuss about her accent? Didn’t she go to a High School in US while growing up?

Priyanka knew her accent would be matter of grave concern for people here and so in her interviews she spoke about it. While speaking about it, she told Bollywoodlife EXCLUSIVELY, “I had dialect coaching to sound even more American and how much I have laughed! Because I told them in India anyway people think I have an accent, now with Quantico, that’s on some other level.” Remember PC talking about her High School days in the US where she was bullied for being a brown girl? Someone who stayed in Queens, Massachusetts and IOWA in her growing up years, she will definitely have an accent. In Quantico, she plays an American, so obviously the accent a bit more pronounced than before.

If you still think she suddenly acquired an ‘accent’, check out these videos. These should tell you that Priyanka’s American accent isn’t an overnight thing and she’s always had it even before Quantico happened. So we can imagine how annoyed Priyanka must be when she’s constantly asked about her accent and if she fakes it !
