Priyanka Chopra speaks at a BeautyCon in Los Angeles on August 11/ TwitterA woman confronted Priyanka Chopra at a beauty event in Los Angeles, criticizing the Indian actress for a tweet she posted in February during a serious escalation of the conflict between India and Pakistan, reports CNN.

As Chopra was taking questions Saturday at BeautyCon, Ayesha Malik went up to the microphone and called the Bollywood star a hypocrite for "encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan" while serving as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

"So it was kind of hard hearing you talk about humanity, because as your neighbor, a Pakistani, I know you're a bit of a hypocrite," Malik can be heard saying in a video of the incident posted on Twitter. "You tweeted on February 26, 'Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces.'"

"You are a UNICEF ambassador for peace and you're encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan. There's no winner in this," Malik said. "As a Pakistani, millions of people like me have supported you in your business of Bollywood and you wanted nuclear war."

The microphone was taken away from Malik toward the end of her statement, the US media outlet reported.
