"'Quantico' is a work of fiction". As the outrage against Priyanka gained momentum, U.S. television network ABC reacted swiftly to apologies to Indian fans.
In a statement, ABC apologised for stepping into "a complex political issue" and defended Ms Chopra from the attacks online, clarifying she did not write, direct or cast the show, and nor does she have any input over plots. "She has no involvement in the casting of the show or the storylines depicted in the series", the ABC statement read.
The episode of spy thriller Quantico showed Chopra's character, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent named Alex Parrish, thwarting the plan and noticing one of the terrorists wearing a Hindu rosary. "I sincerely apologise. I'm a proud Indian and that will never change", Priyanka tweeted on Sunday. After the episode aired last week, a section of the Internet turned against Priyanka and accused her betraying their trust. It saw Chopra's Federal Bureau of Investigation agent character, Alex Parrish, uncover a plot by Indian nationalists to frame Pakistan for a planned nuclear attack on NY during a summit between the two countries. That was not and would never be my intention.
"I did a talk previous year on Hollywood and Propaganda, specifically how Muslims are treated in film", she stated.
The series about Federal Bureau of Investigation recruits and agents is now wrapping up its third and final season. Series star Priyanka Chopra, who is Indian, became the target of criticism, particularly from Indian viewers.
There were many who felt that the outrage was misplaced since portraying Hindu nationalists in negative light wasn't same as branding the Hindu religion as the instigator of terrorism. It was not our intention to offend anyone'.
Disappointment about this distasteful episode, fans of the actor took to micro-blogging platform twitter and slam her for showing Hindus and their religious symbol in "terrorists" plot.
