Padma Lakshmi calls out outlet for confusing her with Priyanka Chopra

New York, Dec 31 (PTI) Host Padma Lakshmi was apparently confused with actor Priyanka Chopra by a news outlet and she has called out the publication for the gaffe.

The goof-up took place over the weekend, when The New Yorker tagged a photo of Lakshmi as Chopra in an Instagram post featuring celebrities' favourite cartoons illustrations from the magazine.

The 'Top Chef' judge shared a screenshot of the error, with a caption intentionally tagging The New Yorker as The New York Daily News.

'Thank you to the illustrious '@nydailynews' for the shoutout. I know to some we all look alike, but... #desilife #justindianthings,' Lakshmi wrote in the caption.

The post by The New Yorker was later deleted.

The publication is yet to respond to the mix-up. PTI RDS BK BK
