Default Priyanka Chopra is being criticized in India for a recent Quantico episode

https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/...o-12972222.php

The Indian actress was considered a groundbreaker with her leading role on the now-canceled ABC drama. But as Vidhi Doshi reports, "a recently aired episode of the show, Quantico, has angered many Indians. In it, her character, a young FBI agent called Alex Parrish, foils a plot by Indian nationalists to carry out a nuclear attack in Manhattan and frame Pakistanis for it days before a summit on Kashmir - a Himalayan territory that both India and Pakistan claim as their own and have fought three major wars over. Chopra's character thwarts the plot after noticing a Hindu symbol - the rudraksha - on a chain worn by one of the terrorists. To many in India, the plot twist - implicating Indians in a terrorist act, especially over the touchy issue of Kashmir - amounts to a betrayal by Chopra, who many here see as a quasi-ambassador for India in the West."

ABC apologizes for Quantico episode that caused controversy in India
Indians fumed over a recently aired episode of the ABC drama revolving around Indian terrorists plotting an attack in Manhattan with the goal of blaming Pakistan for it. “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 network said in a statement. "ABC added that “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.”

Priyanka Chopra joins ABC in apologizing for Quantico episode that was branded an "insult to India"
“I'm extremely saddened and sorry that some sentiments have been hurt by a recent episode of Quantico,“ Chopra tweeted of the recent episode that stirred controversy in India. ”That was not and would never be my intention. I sincerely apologize. I'm a proud Indian and that will never change.“
