Chopra then took to her Instagram and posted brief note about Malala. “I could write a novel about how smart, incredible, inspiring, encouraging and funny this young woman is…but I will keep it brief. Malala, you are an undeniable force to be reckoned with. The world knows that. You are a role model to all the girls and boys that want to make this world a better place for the future. Spending a few hours with you and your incredible father Mr. Yousafzai ( who reminds me so much of my father) , I realized you’re also just a young girl with young dreams. Your jokes, Your love for Hindi Films, your infectious laughter will always remind me of what a huge responsibility you have taken on at such a tender age.. I’m so proud to know you my friend. You inspire women like me all over the world. Can’t wait to speak to u in our secret Hindi/Urdu again. ❤️” she wrote.
