The ultimate desi girl, Priyanka Chopra is all about uplifting those around her, especially her fellow South Asians. It is no surprise she invited all the fabulous South Asian actresses that were currently in attendance to her Chopard party at Cannes. Diana Penty, Huma Qureshi, and Hina Khan snapped an epic picture together with Chopra-Jonas and husband, Nick Jonas.
Hina Khan was so touched by her first meeting with Chopra-Jonas she posted a selfie with a heartfelt message that honored Chopra-Jonas for her kindness. She states that she was so overwhelmed by the love Chopra-Jonas showered on her from introducing her around to people she would have never met to taking the time to learn about Khan’s career
The level of #girllove in this post is too high and we are loving it!

An unexpected invitation by a world star.. personally, after I gained consciousness and prepared my self to finally make it, I was still an outsider but only until you arrived. You didn’t need to, but still never left my hand for a second, introduced me to the people I probably wouldn’t have met and I felt as if all the achievements of my little career happening in fast forward as you present me as a star to each one of them. You somehow know everything ..as you mentioned my debut film and praised me for my hard work and appreciated me for the risks I have taken in my choices. Yes I have taken risks and I am still taking them, whr I almost have everything in my television career ..position,power,money everything.. But someone has to start somewhere I believe.. I always wanted to break the stereotypes and prove it to the world that television actors have it all.. Give us the opportunity our fare share and we will kill it..Not easy at all I know.. But ya I will keep trying keep working hard and make it possible.. I REPEAT TELEVISION HAS IT ALL.. Talent, Glamour, Elegance, Beauty, Grace, Right attitude , and Professionalism.. I am taking baby steps, And I will keep doing that no matter how much criticism one has to face and I will make my own place I promise.. we will face it and win over it as long as we are together.. Hearfelt Gratitude to each one of you for standing by me🙏 WE HAVE IT ALL GUYS.. With my first debut film called LINES, I am trying hard very hard to erase the lines created between talents and mediums 🙏And coming back to @priyankachopra your inclusiveness surpasses my ability of comprehension. Your deliberate attempt to lift up people around you not for their backgrounds but their talent is one of a kind. You are a walking inspiration! When a human being is a personification of an idea of self belief, Grace , humility, substance and greatness, that person can only be you priyanka Chopra You are already the best version of my dream self in the future I want and I believe thousands others like me do too. This is the Priyanka Chopra who believes in lifting others and growing together🙏 you are a sweetheart @nickjonas #AnOutsider #FromTelevisonToCannes
Chopra-Jonas, of course, showed the same love back on social media by commenting on the picture about how proud she is of Khan.
Chopra wrote, “Thank you for the kind words Hina. Was so good to meet you and spend time with you. Proud of what you have achieved and it was my pleasure to highlight the talent the Indian industry possesses in any way that I could. Wishing you all the luck in the world, onward and upwards! Xoxo #GirlsForGirls.”
Khan has been breaking barriers and surprised all with her Cannes debut. She has been taking these new steps in her career so gracefully it is stunning to watch. In her caption, she took a dig at her critics by stating that “Television has it all” as in India, television actors are not always given the same respect as film actors. Thus it was even more meaningful for Khan that Chopra-Jonas, being a film actress, was so humble and loving.
Though Khan called Chopra-Jonas a “walking inspiration,” we believe both these women definitely deserve that label!
