'Quantico' team apologise for controversial 'Indian terrorist' episode


An episode of ABC’s 'Quantico' featuring a terror plot involving Indian nationalists has resulted in backlash against the drama series’ star Priyanka Chopra in India. The network today apologized to Indian fans of the show, which is wrapping up airing episodes for its third and final season.

In the recently-aired episode of 'Quantico', Priyanka, who plays FBI agent Alex Parrish, plots a nuclear attack in Manhattan to frame Pakistan for it, just days before an Indo-Pak summit is to be held. The episode had angered many Indian fans of Priyanka.

Apologising for the episode, which drew criticism from certain sections of Indians online, ABC said in a statement to Washington Post: “ABC Studios and the executive producers of Quantico would like to extend an apology to our audience who were offended by the most recent episode, The Blood of Romeo. 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. She has no involvement in the casting of the show or the storylines depicted in the series"
