Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are in Delhi for their first reception after an epic wedding ceremony in Umaid Bhawan Palace. But unfortunately, the fireworks for the wedding faced the wrath of social media trolls and now PETA is calling out the newlywed couple for the use of animals in their wedding.
PETA – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals India, has called out newlyweds Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas for using elephants and horses at their wedding procession.
PETA India took to Twitter to blast the couple who tied the knot as per Hindu traditions on Sunday in Jodhpur. It said, “Dear @priyankachopra and @nickjonas. Elephants for weddings live and chains and horses are controlled with whips, spiked bits. People are rejecting elephant rides and having horse-free weddings. Congrats, but we regret it was not a happy day for animals”
PETA also shared its video from four years ago, highlighting the woes of the animals, titled, Captive Elephants in Jaipur: PETA India’s 2014 Inspection.
Priyanka, who is a vocal asthmatic, was lambasted for hypocrisy after the sky was lit up with spectacular fireworks post the first nuptials. On Diwali, the actor had urged people not to burn firecrackers and celebrate a pollution-free festival of lights.
The official statement from the couple on both the issues is still awaited.
The couple will host their first reception in Delhi, which will be followed by second reception in Mumbai, for the entire Bollywood Fraternity.
Priyanka Chopra will soon return to post-production work of “The Sky is Pink” also starring Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim.
