Watch the video. To her credit, Deepika Padukone ignores the mistake and walks by impassively.
Deepika was previously mistaken for Priyanka during promotions of xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage. Priyanka Chopra, a familiar face in the West courtesy her starring role on the TV show Quantico, and Deepika Padukone are co-stars from the film Bajirao Mastani. They don't look alike. To help foreign media understand that these are two different Indian actresses, who look nothing like each other, here is a comparative image of Deepika and Priyanka at the Oscar after party.
Last March, Deepika Padukone was described by UK publication Daily Mail as a 'female companion' and a 'leggy brunette' after being photographed with tennis star Novak Djokovich in Los Angeles.
Priyanka Chopra has not escaped misidentification either. A photo of former beauty queen Yukta Mookhey was used in place of Priyanka's by Nightline, the late night bulletin that airs on ABC - embarrassingly, the same network that airs Quantico. Priyanka Chopta had just made her debut on the show as lead character Alex Parrish.
