Bollywood actors have been called out for 'glorifying war' and supporting the Indian army's breach of Pakistani territory.

A tweet by Priyanka Chopra, supporting Indian Armed Forces fighting Pakistan, received fierce backlash for supposedly advocating violations of an international peace boundary.

The actress, who is friends with Meghan Markle, was criticised by Pakistani actress Armeena Rana Khan for the post which read 'Jai Hind (Long live India) #IndianArmedForces'.

Khan said that the Bollywood star was a hypocrite because of her role as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and that she could not be taken seriously any longer.

Responding to the tweet, Khan wrote: 'What?!!! But aren't you supposed to be Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF? Screenshot this everyone and next time she speaks for peace and goodwill. Let's remind her of this hypocrisy.' 

Khan also called on other Bollywood actors to be stopped from 'preaching to the world' if they continued to 'call for war' between the two nations.
