Imitation, at one point of time, used to be the sincerest form of flattery. That was, of course, before the Internet was invented. Today, thanks to social media, memes have replaced imitation.

Priyanka Chopra is living proof.

If PeeCee started charging royalty for every meme ever made on her sartorial choices, she’d be a billionaire. No jokes.

Just think about it — imagine her recent MET Gala outfit. 

Or the one before that.

But PeeCee is so cool that way and will just hair-flip it away.

Hottest on the meme list right now is Priyanka’s khaki shorts, which apparently — and I say it with a heavy heart because fashion just died reading this theory — look like the RSS uniform.

Umm... no, they don’t.

News flash for the uninitiated trollsters: the RSS doesn’t even wear khaki shorts anymore!

The Mohan Bhagwat-led Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh or the RSS have a specific uniform — white shirt, dark brown trousers, dark brown socks and a black cap. The new uniform was introduced back in 2016, and it came into effect on Dussehra that year, on the occasion of the RSS’s Foundation Day.

So, this meme is actually three years too late!

Back to the shorts — the fact is, whatever Priyanka Chopra wears, she rocks. And we’re not just saying that because her magnificent PR machinery has us dazzled. We’re saying this 'coz it’s true. The khaki shorts were no different either.

She teamed her khaki with navy blue — a long blazer jacket, a buttoned blouse, an oversized handbag and a pair of knee-length boots.


But, meme makers have their knickers in a knot ever since they spotted this picture of PeeCee and Nick Jonas. Amidst all their yowling, notice PeeCee’s casual stroll with that deadpan stare — and that’s how she’s walking all over this meme, casually destroying every memester's effort to laugh at her expense. She’s flipping her hair in slow motion, staring at you in the face and saying, “Ima wear khaki shorts and Ima look good, too.”

If you can hear some badass beats dropping in the background, well, you’re not alone. We do too.
