Shahid Kapoor‘s wife Mira Rajput slammed US financial expert Peter Schiff over his tweet about Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s outfit during his recent address to the US Congress. While netizens appreciated the Ukrainian leader for his poignant speech, Schiff condemned him for wearing a casual green coloured t-shirt for the virtual meeting. Taking to her Instagram on Saturday, Mira shared a screenshot of Zelenskyy’s appearance and criticised Schiff for his narrow approach.
Peter Schiff had tweeted, ”I understand times are hard, but doesn’t the President of the #Ukraine own a suit? I don’t have much respect for current members of the U.S. Congress either, but I still wouldn’t address them wearing a t-shirt. I wouldn’t want to disrespect the institution or the United States.”
Defending Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Mira shared Schiff’s tweet and wrote, “You’d ask him to wear cufflinks if you could… Seriously!” She also added, “Are we getting so influenced by ‘looks’ and looking the part, that we forget reality? Expecting a Head of State to have his suit steamed in the middle of a crisis?”
Earlier, Priyanka had dubbed the Russian military attack on Ukraine as “terrifying” and said it was difficult to understand how the situation has escalated to a “catastrophic point”. The actress, who is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, took to Instagram and shared a news clipping of the Ukraine crisis. “The situation unfolding in Ukraine is terrifying. Innocent people living in fear for their lives and the lives of their loved ones, while trying to navigate the uncertainty of the immediate future,” she wrote.

“It’s difficult to comprehend how in the modern world this could escalate to such a catastrophic point, but this is a consequential moment that will reverberate around the world. There are innocent lives living in this war zone,” she added along with urging people to help Ukraine.
