Netizens point out Preity Zinta’s changed accent

While Preity looked stunning in the saree from the shelves of Seema Gujral, what caught netizens' attention was her accent. A segment of the people on the internet pointed out her changed accent. Others defended their favourite actress. One user said, “What happened to her accent? For once why can’t they define the place from which they come from? Wearing a saree symbolising Indian authenticity but the accent!” Another wrote, “I am perplexed as to why Indians modify their accents when in foreign lands, engaging with natives. It comes across as disingenuous. Why cannot they retain their genuine selves?” Meanwhile, a third netizen mentioned, “Stop being judgmental folks.”
