  • Priyanka Chopra plays the character of FBI agent Alex Parrish in ABC’s Quantico

After the recent Quantico episode, Chopra has faced online attacks at home, and even some calls to boycott her work and the brands that she endorses, including South Korean giant Samsung Electronics Co. "It was certainly not our intention to offend anyone".

On June 8, the showrunners and ABC studios, the American TV network that aires the show issued an apology statement for hurting sentiments of Indians and stated that it was a work of fiction and nothing else. But Parrish discovers that one of the terrorists wears a rudraksh chain, which leads her to infer that Hindu terrorists were behind the plan.

"What the hell was this episode of #Quantico. they tried to show "Indian nationalists" (their term) trying to blow up Manhattan to frame Pakistan". When asked by Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live" if there were any "flirtatious vibes" between the good-looking stars, Chopra coyly replied, "We didn't have time yet, maybe next time we meet".

The producers at U.S. network ABC that airs Quantico has also asserted that the Indian actor has been targeted "unfairly".

"Just saw the Quantico clip".

As part of the apology, they wrote: 'The episode has stirred up 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.

However, there were those who maintained that it was, after all, merely a fictional show.

Ahmed says she supports creative licence and imaginative storytelling but "living in a socio-political environment that's highly charged", writers who have a mainstream platform need to stay informed. Nick wore a casual tee and jeans with a distressed denim jacket, Priyanka on the other hand wore a baby pink separates which she paired with a ivory jacket draped on her shoulders. "But we should do it understanding what the implications can be".
