Priyanka on Tuesday shared a video featuring a girl named Wafaa from a refugee camp in Jordan, where she has gone as Unicef Goodwill Ambassador. In the video, the fan is heard saying: "I love you Katrina". Later, the "Mary Kom" actress adds: "This is for you Katrina, a message for you from all the way from Za'atri." 

The actress, 35, captioned the video: "This is a special shout out to one of India's biggest movie stars. Katrina Kaif, this video is just for you, all the way from Za'atari refugee camp in Jordan. 

"This is Wafaa, one of your biggest fans and her message roughly translated is 'I love Katrina Kaif a lot and I am one of her fans. I have watched all her movies and never missed one, even if a movie is played more than once I watch it. I love you Katrina and love your beauty'." 

Priyanka says she was "especially" asked to give messages of love to these Indian film superstars, who are favourites at Za'atari. 

"Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor and Anushka Sharma... a big shoutout to you all and Hindi movies from these amazing kids who are huge fans... our movies give them much joy. This was something I honestly did not expect...but it made my day," she added on Instagram.

The "Jai Gangaajal" actress says their films "give people a sense of hope, relief and escape in such dire circumstances".

"This post is for all my colleagues in the entertainment business around the world... know what we do sometimes has such a deep impact on people's lives and goes beyond just the mere entertainment people look at us for," she wrote.

Priyanka is currently in Jordan to help children uprooted by the civil war in Syria. 

At Za'atari, I'm proud to have had the opportunity to visit the home of Seba and her whole family - Mohammed, 19; Seba, 17; Haya 14; Hiba, 12; Omar, 6; Hala, 4. In spite of their circumstances, their makeshift home, and very little to call their own, we were the recipients of the full Syrian hospitality and love. Her mother, Isdihaar, a dignified and happy spirit was so open about her earlier life, and all that they do now to survive. They had a full life in Syria, with a home and everything they could ask for, and now...sitting in their sparse living room, all I got was a resolve to hold on until they could return to their home and rebuild their life. Without her husband there, she's taking care of her 6 children by working at an innovation lab, finding innovative solutions for everyday problems...like the neo-natal air conditioner created by just using a fan, ice cubes and box with holes. As I was leaving, Seba removed her bracelet and gave it to me and said it was so I'd never forget her. I will never forget her and the amazing people I've met, and it is because of them that my resolve to keep working by bringing attention to their situation has just grown stronger. Hoping that somehow we, the citizens of the world, will find it in our hearts to contribute to ease the largest humanitarian crisis since the end of World War II.

A large number of Syrians died or were forced to leave their homes due to the conflict. Since then, a number of Syrians have taken shelter in neighbouring countries like Jordan.
