Indian actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas has issued an apology over her participation in the show after it got embroiled in a controversy and social media backlash. She says she is sorry that her participation in it disappointed many.
The actress, who is married to American pop star Nick Jonas, said she has been “moved” by the criticism.
She shared the apology letter on her Instagram. It read: “I have been moved by the power of your voices over the past week. At the core, Activism is fuelled by cause and effect, and when the people come together to raise their voice about something, there is always an effect. You were heard.”
The statement further read: “The show got it wrong, and I am sorry that my participation in it disappointed many of you.“
The 39-year-old actress said that the intention was always to “bring attention to the people behind the ideas and highlight the actions and impact of the causes they support tirelessly.“
“I’m happy to know that in this new format, their stories will be the highlight, and I’m proud to collaborate with the partners who have their ear to the ground and know when it’s time to hit pause and re-evaluate,” she said.
The actress added: “There is a global community of activists who fight the fight every single day and put their blood, sweat and tears into creating change, but more often than not, they are rarely heard or acknowledged.“
“Their work is so important and they too deserve to be recognized and celebrated. Thank you to each and every one of you all for all that you do.“
