Once again, Priyanka Chopra graced the stage of the Emmy Awards as a presenter. However, the ceremony suffered an embarrassing mishap and ended up calling the actress “Priyanka Chopa”.
On 17th September 2017, the Bollywood star joined Anthony Anderson to present the Outstanding Variety Talk Series award. As they approached the stage, the announcer began to introduce them to the star-studded crowd.
While the announcer pronounced Anthony’s name flawlessly, she stumbled upon Priyanka’s. Instead, she introduced the starlet as “Priyanka Chopa”.
Despite the mishap, PeeCee herself appeared cool and confident on stage as she and Anthony presented talk show host John Oliver with his award.
However, her fans appeared shocked at the mispronunciation. As usual, it caused a stir on Twitter.
