Priyanka Chopra, who wrongly found herself at the receiving end for a Hindu terror plot in 'Quantico, has issued an apology for the same.
After being subjected to heavy criticism and labeled as an anti-nationalist, she took to Twitter to say that it was not her intention to hurt any sentiments.
"I'm a proud Indian and that will never change," she wrote.
I’m extremely saddened and sorry that some sentiments have been hurt by a recent episode of Quantico. That was not and would never be my intention. I sincerely apologise. I'm a proud Indian and that will never change.— PRIYANKA (@priyankachopra) June 9, 2018
The episode showcased that an MIT professor is planning to detonate a nuclear bomb in New York during an India-Pakistan peace summit.
While investigating about the same, Priyanka's character Alex Parrish finds a rudraksh on the neck of one of the terrorists, which implies that the attack is being planned by a Hindu nationalist to frame Pakistan in a terrorist plot.
After the fifth episode of the third season of 'Quantico' sparked an online outrage, the makers of the show, US television studio ABC, issued a clarification defending their lead star.
They said that the backlash has been unfairly aimed at Priyanka as she didn't create the show, nor does she write or direct it.
"Quantico has featured antagonists of many different ethnicities and backgrounds, but in this case, we inadvertently and regrettably stepped into a complex political issue. We didn't intend to offend anyone," said ABC.
