    Amused social media users had a good laugh when they came across a video of slogans chanting the name of Indian-American actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas during a political rally in the national capital New Delhi.

    In an embarrassing goof-up during a political rally by Indian opposition party Congress in New Delhi, a legislator apparently confused the name of Priyanka Chopra with Congress politician Priyanka Gandhi.

    In the video clip going viral on social media, Congress legislator Surender Kumar can be seen gesturing to the crowd to repeat after him and shouting into the mic: “Sonia Gandhi zindabad (long-live),...Priyanka Chopra zindabad (long-live)".

    Realising his mistake, the person presiding over the mic immediately apologised for the error, but it was too late as the tickled crowd had already realised what had happened and fits of laughter took over the rally.

    The video clip soon triggered an avalanche of responses on Twitter as social media users poked fun at the Congress Party.

    The 37-year-old mega star Priyanka is currently in America with her husband Nick Jonas. The couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary on 1 December. While Priyanka shared some throwback pictures from her grand wedding and an adorable video clip, Nick shared a snap from from their Christian wedding ceremony as the two held hands, exchanging wedding vows.
