From slaying at the royal wedding in Windsor of ‘good friend’ Meghan Markle with Prince Harry to now meeting with Rohingya refugees in Dhaka, Bangladesh -- Priyanka Chopra is one of the busiest Bollywood celebrity.

As a global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights, Priyanka went on a field trip to visit refugee children. 

In pictures shared on her Instagram page, Priyanka is seen clad in UNICEF t-shirt and a modest scarf that covers her head as she is surrounded by teary-eyed children. In a long post, she wrote about the trauma that kids face when they don’t have a permanent house or an identity.
