Priyanka Chopra chooses a decidedly demure look to meet PM Narendra Modi this time

Once bitten, twice shy?

Remember when Priyanka Chopra's meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin last year sparked off a huge debate on the Internet about her inappropriate choice of outfit? Though it was a dainty knee-length floral ruffled dress that the Quantico star was wearing, she was slammed by extremists for showing off her legs.

The actor retorted by posting a picture with her mum, Madhu Chopra, with the caption, "Legs for days... #itsthegenes." Apparently, her mother claimed that since the meeting was so sudden and coincidental, Priyanka didn't have time to change.

This time, however, the global sensation made sure her sartorial choice left absolutely no room for error — in a meeting last night with the PM, the actor chose to wear a white handwoven sherwani from Rohit Bal. Priyanka's drastic change in style is a direct jab at all the Internet trolls she encountered. Just how we'd do it. More power to you, Priyanka. 

"Very grateful to the honorable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi to meet me, Shri J.P. Nadda (Indian Health Minister) and Mrs. Michelle Bachelet, (former President of Chile, incoming #PMNCH Chair) in regards to being a patron for the Partners' Forum which is being held in New Delhi in December this year. The aim is very important - the improvement and transformation of access to quality healthcare at at every life stage for women, children and adolescents, in an effort to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in 2030," she wrote in her Instagram post.

"This year, India will play host to the largest ever Partners' Forum, with more than 1,200 delegates from more than 92 countries. It was an insightful, positive conversation which was very heartening and inspiring because of the personal commitment of everyone at the meeting. We covered a lot of ground from the various efforts being taken by individual countries & partners to building a collective environment that could help propel the change we seek for a better world. We started something important today and I am looking forward to what is being set in motion," the post said.
