Priyanka Chopra is being schooled on social media for her claims of having knowledge about Islam.

The Bollywood turned Hollywood actress will be the next guest at the Oprah Winfrey’s interview.

The show once again managed to make headlines after the bombshell interview of Megan and Prince Harry.

However, the Quantico star who tried to pull a global citizen image portraying having knowledge about religions has backfired!

Though the interview is to premiere on March 20 on discovery+, as part of ‘Super Soul,’ hosted by Oprah Winfrey and produced by OWN, the promo of the show features, Oprah talking to Priyanka about India’s ‘spiritual energy’ and asks if she had a ‘spiritual foundation’.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas can be seen speaking about her secular upbringing in secular India that she claims and talks about how she has had Christian, Islamic and Hindu influences in her life.

“I think I did. In India, it is hard not to. You’re right. With the swirling number of religions that we have, that live within the country as well. I grew up in a convent school,” Priyanka says.

I was aware of Christianity. My dad used to sing in a mosque, I was aware of Islam. I grew up in a Hindu family, I was aware of that. Spirituality is such a large part of India that you really cannot ignore it,” Priyanka added.

“I am a Hindu. I pray I have a temple at my home, I do it as often as I can. But true to me, I am a believer that a higher power does exist and I like to have faith in that,” she added.

Wait…what?

“My dad used to sing in a mosque, I was aware of Islam,” she says!

Sorry, that’s not the correct awareness of Islam. No one is allowed to sing in a mosque!

Here watch the clip:

 

Netizens were quick to point out the wrong perception about Islam on social media:

 

The sit-down interview will give audiences a closer look into Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ journey of self-discovery, her marriage to Nick Jonas, and her New York Times best-selling memoir, ‘Unfinished’.
