Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas get The Simpsons treatment as artist recreates wedding photos

The Simpsons has been a cult series of sorts in many ways. The series has stood the test of time with its often lazy yet acerbic take on the world. Recently, the character Apu came under severe scrutiny owing to the stereotypical way the character behaved and spoke. Actress Priyanka Chopra, who could be considered a spokesperson for Indians in the west (to say the least), also opened up about the issue in the past, stating that Apu had become the bane of her life as most questioned her as to why she did not sound or speak in a similar manner.

Chopra has now shared pictures of The Simpsons renditions of her marriage with Nick Jonas. The animation captures the duo aptly, in their signature dresses that made headlines. One image shows Nick and Priyanka in their traditional ensemble that they sported during their Indian wedding while the other captures the Christian wedding.

Following Priyanka's comments, the already controversy-ridden show, tried making amends through a scene between Marge and Lisa where the two talk about political correctness in 2018. However, the move was further criticised by audiences who said that the tone was rather dismissive.

The character of Apu has been portrayed by non-Indian actor Hank Azaria and came under the spotlight following the November release of comedian Hari Kondabolu’s documentary, The Problem With Apu.
