Congress Upsets With Priyanka Chopra’s ‘Frock’ On Assam Tourism Calendar

February 20, 2018

Priyanka Chopra has had a remarkable career graph. She was crowned Miss World at the age of 17 and went on giving stellar performances in many big Bollywood movies. Now the actress has established herself in the international platform and now she is known for her performance in The Quantico. From Miss World to The Quatico, she did so much that few Indian actresses have done. However, she has been clinging to the headlines.

Now the  actress and brand ambassador of Assam Tourism is again in the headlines, but not for her international projects, but to wear a short dress in Assam Tourism calendar launch. Few congress leaders want her to be removed as the brand ambassador of the state.  The Assam Tourism Development Corporation feels her photos on the New Year calendar printed by Assam Tourism shows her “inappropriately dressed”.

Priyanka Chopra has once again put in a big trouble over her attire after some members of the Congress party slammed the actor for wearing a “frock”.  The Congress MLAs Nandita Das and Rupjyoti Kurmi criticized Priyanka  Chopra for wearing a revealing outfit in the photos and said her pictures “were not sober at all”.

“The government should preserve the respect of the Assamese society. The Frock is not an  Assamese attire and the calendar pictures were not sober at all. The government should have known how to preserve the prestige of the Assamese society, instead, they could have used the traditional mekhela chador. This is the reason we have protested against the calendar. There are a lot of talented Assamese actors, the government should look into this and accordingly appoint one,” said Kurmi.

On the other hand, Chairman of Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC), Jayanta Malla Baruah, continual to support the calendar and told, “The calendar was made to promote Assam internationally. It has also been sent to prominent international tour operators and dignitaries.”

He further added that, “Priyanka Chopra is an international figure and her presentation in the calendar has not diminished Assam’s culture in any way.”
