Kangana Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra are the two Bollywood actress' who don't shy away from expressing their opinion. Given the fact, that Priyanka found herself in the hot waters after Pak government issued a petition demanding she be removed as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Kangana has backed Priyanka Chopra stating that it is not an 'easy choice', when one is stuck between 'duty and emotions' and that being a UNICEF Goodwill ambassador cannot limit one's identity to a certain nation, and that many choose 'heart over mind' every day.
Citing Priyanka Chopra's “jingoism and support for violations by the Modi government of international conventions and UNSC resolutions on Kashmir,” Pak Federal Minister, Shireen M. Mazari urged UNICEF to immediately remove the actor from her position as UN Goodwill Ambassador for Peace. The human rights minister also shared a copy of the letter on Twitter on Wednesday.

Whenever you’re done venting. Got it? Done? OK, cool,” Chopra had replied, going on to add, "Girl, don't yell, we're all here for love. You're embarrassing yourself.”
