Priyanka Chopra's interview with Oprah Winfrey has been getting a lot of attention. Priyanka spoke about her memoir Unfinished, her relationship with Nick Jonas and also opened up about an incident wherein she quit a film because the director mistreated her and made her uncomfortable.

However, one remark by the actor hasn't gone down well with Twitter. While speaking about her 'understanding' of different religions, Priyanka said, "With the swirling number of religions that we have, that live within the country as well. I grew up in a convent school. 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".
