Sam Pitroda, Chairman of the Indian Overseas Congress, has sparked controversy with his recent comments in an interview with The Statesman. Talking about India's diverse nature, he said, 'east look like the Chinese, people in the west look like the Arabs, people in the north look like, maybe, white and people in the south look like Africans.'

Sam's racist comment drew sharp criticism from netizens, including actress Pranitha Subhash, known for her roles in Kannada films. She responded on her X account to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's tweet addressing Pitroda's remarks, stating, "I am a South Indian! And I look Indian #SamPitroda."

Check it out:

Nirmala Sitharaman, who hails from Tamil Nadu, said, "I am from South India. I look Indian! My team has enthusiastic members from northeast India. They look Indian! My colleagues from west India look Indian! But, for the racist who is the mentor of Rahul Gandhi, we all look African, Chinese, Arab and white! Thanks for revealing your mindset and your attitude."

Meanwhile, Pranitha made her Bollywood debut with Hungama 2. Her last Hindi film was Bhuj: The Pride of India, with Ajay Devgn.

On the work front, Pranitha was last seen in Malayalam film, Thankamani which was released in March 2024.
