Actress Priyanka Chopra-Jonas, who turned 37 on Thursday, spent her birthday with husband Nick Jonas, mum Madhu Chopra and cousin Parineeti in Miami. Parineeti took a break from the promotions of her upcoming film 'Jabariya Jodi' to spend time with the family, and posted pictures of the celebrations on Instagram.

While pictures from her vacation showed the actress having a good time, the 'Quantico' star has now received flak from a section of social media users over a photograph that showed her smoking. The 37-year-old has in the past spoken about suffering from asthma.

She had even taken to Twitter to raise awareness about saying no to crackers around Diwali, but later faced criticism for firecrackers used on her wedding.

However, now trolls seem to be upset over Chopra smoking a cigarette in the newly-surfaced picture, that also shows Jonas and Madhu Chopra smoking cigars.

While the trolls slammed the actress, a section of Twitter users defended her saying everyone can make their own choices.
