After father-in-law Paul Kevin Jonas, Sr., Cardi B took to Twitter to laud actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s new Netflix film, ‘The White Tiger.’ The rapper was moved to tears by the film released on January 22. Also starring actors Rajkummar Rao and Adarsh Gourav, the movie is directed by Ramin Bahrani.
The 28-year-old singer-songwriter shared in a tweet, “White Tiger is such a great movie. I was crying and angry while watching it.” A few hours later, Priyanka replied, “So happy you enjoyed it.” Cardi B, among the most influential female rappers of all time, shot to fame with the hit single Bodak Yellow.
The Grammy-winning musician is not the only one who has given a shout-out to the film; Priyanka’s father-in-law, Paul Kevin Jonas, Sr. also took to Instagram and encouraged the fans to “go see this powerful movie.” He also replied to one of Priyanka's Instagram posts, saying, "Amazing performance. Your portrayal of Pinky was heartbreaking and inspiring. Love you".
Among others who replied to the same post, by Priyanka on her character Pinky in the movie, was Mindy Kaling. In a reply to Priyanka's post, Mindy said, "Loved it! Such a great story and beautifully written".
