Priyanka Chopra and ABC Apologize for Controversial ‘Quantico’ Episode About Indian Terrorists


QUANTICO- ABC's"Quantico stars Priyanka Chopra as Alex Parrish

The recent episode has angered numerous Indians which led the producers of Quantico to issue an apology.

Quantico actor Priyanka Chopra has issued an apology post the controversy around the recent episode from the American series that showed Indians planning a terrorist attack.

The episode which aired on June 1 caused a storm on social media, with fans questioning how Priyanka Chopra, an Indian, could even agree to be a part of the controversial plot. The terrorists had tried to frame Pakistanis for the attack planned ahead of a summit on Kashmir, a disputed Himalayan territory that arch-rivals India and Pakistan claim as their own.

Tweeting her response, Chopra said she was "extremely saddened and sorry that some sentiments have been hurt by a recent episode of Quantico". Furthermore, blaming Priyanka Chopra did not make sense, since she was only an actor and it wasn't her story to write or decision to make.

Quantico star Priyanka Chopra is apologizing after backlash over the show's recent storyline involving India, Pakistan and terrorism.
