The message reads:

"I can't help staying silent on this anymore.. It's too sad to see how films and actors become political pawns! Bans based on baseless propaganda.. Holding films ransom just before they release so that publicity can be garnered for certain agendas by forcing a producer to their knees.. How does no one speak up for what is right? How is this fair? People think films r just fun and games to make?! They r made with blood sweat and tears for entertainment!! Pls stand by the filmmakers who put in their life's money and hard work to make people laugh and smile. Don't let them be blackmailed and threatened by holding their films ransom just before release. Speak up before if there is an issue!! Everyone has a right to an opinion. The timing right before release just seems very suspect!! I know I may get into trouble for saying all this but I can't be a silent witness to character defamation based on opinions anymore.. That is not what, the India I grew up, taught me."

Recently the Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena had appealed to people to boycott Shah Rukh Khan's Dilwale, saying that the actor has ignored the plight of farmers afflicted by the devastating droughts in Maharashtra. The party chief said that they're not looking for a ban on the film, but just appealing to the audience to boycott it, as Shah Rukh Khan is 'taking Maharashtra lightly.'

This just makes Priyanka Chopra's Twitter rant seems more and more justified and relevant!
