I’m A Proud Indian! Priyanka Chopra Sorry For Quantico Storyline After Being Branded  insult To India

Famed Indian actress Priyanka Chopra has taken to social media to  apologise after outrage over a storyline on her US TV series Quantico.A recent episode of the spy thriller showed the main character, played by Ms Chopra, thwarting a plot hatched by Hindus ahead of a summit on Kashmir. Many Indian fans were outraged by the show’s story and attacked her online. Taking to social media Chopra said “I’m extremely saddened and sorry that some sentiments have been hurt by a recent episode of Quantico,“ Chopra said on Twitter. ”That was not and would never be my intention. I sincerely apologise. I’m a proud Indian and that will never change.“The episode, The Blood of Romeo, aired on 1 June and showed the main character, Alex Parrish, stopping an attempted terror attack. Though ostensibly planned by Pakistanis ahead of a summit about Kashmir, the disputed territory in the Himalayas claimed by India and Pakistan, Ms Chopra’s character discovers it is in fact Hindu nationalists trying to frame the Pakistanis.Nuclear-armed Pakistan and India have fought two wars over the Kashmir region since partition in 1947. Fans reacted with fury online after the episode aired, with some declaring Ms Chopra “an insult to India” and the episode an attack on Hindus. 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.Photo Credit: Getty
