Priyanka Chopra Apologises Over ‘Quantico’ Hindu Terrorists Plotline | TV News

 

Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra has wholeheartedly apologised after a recent episode of the spy thriller series Quantico she stars in triggered outrage in India, with many fans feeling insulted by the storyline and calling the Indian-born actress a traitor.

 

The US drama episode, which aired on June 1, showed Indian nationalists framing Pakistan as Chopra’s character Alex Parrish managed to thwart the Hindus’ terrorist attack planned ahead of a summit on Kashmir — a Himalayan territory which is source of historical tension between India and Pakistan.

 

The 35-year-old former Miss World declared she was “a proud Indian and that will never change”.

 

“I’m extremely saddened and sorry that some sentiments have been hurt by a recent episode of Quantico”, she wrote on Twitter, “That was not and would never be my intention. I sincerely apologise.”

 

The producers of the crime drama, ABC Studios, also defended Chopra: “The episode has stirred a lot of emotion, much of which is unfairly aimed at Priyanka Chopra, who didn’t create the show, nor does she write or direct it” the studio’s spokespersons said in a statement.

 

“The show has featured antagonists of many different ethnicities and backgrounds, but in this case we inadvertently and regrettably stepped into a complex political issue. It was certainly not our intention to offend anyone.”

Just your typical French girl cliché : a fashionista with a child-like sense of wonder and a great passion for art, whose definition of fun involves reading literature in parks, writing old movie reviews, making sketches of strangers and debating with friends at sidewalk cafés. I am a 22-year-old business school student walking around with a head full of existential questions, driven by an insatiable curiosity and thirst for knowledge which constantly prompt me to see or do something new. As part of this discovery process, I am currently living in London for a few months before heading back to Paris and enrolling in a master in marketing.
