Priyanka Chopra's tweet celebrating Indian army's attack on Pakistan may have been criticised by her fans in Pakistan, but she has found support in Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut. 

Priyanka has faced much flak for her tweet since the actor is also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador with a Pakistani minister even asking UN to remove her from her post. 

Kangana though has spoken in favour of her 'Fashion' co-actor. "It`s not an easy choice to make... when you are stuck between your duty and your emotions, being a UNICEF goodwill ambassador sure you can`t limit your identity to one nation, but how many of us choose heart over mind every day," the actress said in a recent interaction. 

Pakistan`s Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari penned has urges UNICEF to remove the Priyanka for her alleged "hypocrisy".

The letter states that it “undermines the credibility of the UN position to which she has been elevated.”
