The incident unfolded recently in the beach city of Malibu, California when Priyanka Chopra and her husband, singer Nick Jonas, came across comedian Rosie O'Donnell, her son and his girlfriend.

Actor and entrepreneur Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Thursday responded to  American comedian Rosie O’Donnell's apology after the latter mistakenly called her the daughter of wellness expert Deepak Chopra and for failing to refer to her by her name and instead, calling her “someone Chopra”.

In an Instagram story, without naming O'Donnell, Chopra said: "Hi everyone. Some thoughts. I have never taken myself so seriously to think everyone would know who I am, or my work for that matter. But if you wanted to make a public apology for a very awkward private encounter, I think probably best to take the time to google my name before doing it or even try to reach out directly."

"We ALL deserve to be respected for our unique individuality and not be referred to as ‘someone’ or ‘wife’ especially in a sincere apology. If we can learn to respect our differences in an authentic way, the world we raise our children in will be amazing."

Also referring to the awkward conversation with O'Donnell where Chopra had to correct her and explain that "Chopra" was a common surname in India, the actor added a postscript: "As I’ve said before, not all Chopras are related to the great Deepak, just as not all Smith’s are related to the legendary Will Smith."
