    New Delhi (Sputnik): Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat triggered an avalanche of memes and jokes on social media soon after she took to Twitter to share her picture with American singer Nick Jonas as the two met unexpectedly at the US Open Men's Semi-Finals in New York.

    Mehwish, an A-list actress in Pakistan, had been vocal in condemning Priyanka Chopra for her spat with a Pakistani girl at Beautycon Los Angeles and conveyed her disagreements in an op-ed for CNN, calling Priyanka as “jingoist”. Chopra, a Bollywood and Hollywood actress, is married to Nick Jonas of Jonas Brothers fame.

    The picture shared by Mehwish showed her posing with Priyanka’s spouse, amusing Indians and Pakistanis alike, given the fact that her take on Priyanka had garnered worldwide attention. A verbal scuffle ensued between Indian and Pakistani social media users, with Team Priyanka and Team Mehwish exchanging barbs.

    Several Pakistani twitterati trolled Priyanka Chopra while drawing comparisons between the two actresses.

    Others went a notch up and photoshopped Priyanka Chopra alongside Nick in place of Mehwish in a bid to troll Priyanka who earlier photoshopped herself in a picture of Nick Jonas at VMA awards.

    However, a section of both Indian and Pakistani twitterati called Mehwish “attention seeker” and slammed her for her post criticizing Priyanka.

    Earlier, Priyanka came under fire after various Pakistani leaders asked UNICEF to drop her as UN goodwill ambassador after she got involved in a verbal spat with a Pakistani woman at Beautycon Los Angeles for supporting the Indian Army. However, the UN snubbed Islamabad, saying Priyanka Chopra retains the right to express her personal views.
