Priyanka Chopra sorry for ‘Quantico’ Hindu plotline
    2018-06-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

INDIAN actress Priyanka Chopra has apologized after outrage over a plotline on her U.S. TV series “Quantico.”

A recent episode of the spy thriller showed the main character, played by 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.

Chopra declared herself a “proud Indian” in a tweet and “extremely saddened” by any hurt caused by the show.

The episode, “The Blood of Romeo,” aired June 1 and showed the main character, Alex Parrish, stopping an attempted terrorist attack.

Though ostensibly planned by Pakistanis ahead of a summit about Kashmir, the disputed territory in the Himalayas claimed by India and Pakistan, 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 the partition in 1947.

Fans reacted with fury online after the episode aired, with some declaring Chopra “an insult to India” and the episode an attack on Hindus.

In a statement, ABC apologized for stepping into “a complex political issue” and defended Chopra from the attacks online, clarifying she did not write, direct or cast the show, nor does she have any input over plots.

Chopra has faced anger from fans before. She drew ire after she wore a dress that showed her legs in a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year.

And her recent visits to Rohinyga refugees in Bangladesh also caused some anger online.
