Model-actress Mahika Sharma who has worked in Assam projects and Hindi TV industry is not happy with Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra. She claims that Priyanka the brand ambassador of Assam state's tourism is showing no interest towards Assam Flood.
Mahika said to a english daily, “Priyanka is my aspiration and inspiration. She is really a humble person. But I’m very upset from her. Because she owns some power to help the poors who are victim of Assam flood. She didn’t even showed any emotions for the state even in social networking site. This is what not only me but anyone from assam would be upset.”
“I dont wish she takes my word personally but understands my and Assam people’s emotions and excitement from her being associated with the state,” she concludes.
Currenty Baywatch actress is currently shooting in the US for her two Hollywood flicks, 'A Kid Like Jake' and 'Isn’t It Romantic?'.
