Chopra, a former Miss World, said she was "a proud Indian and that will never change". It led to the network and the series producers apologizing to Indian fans who took exception to the characterizations. She comes to the conclusion that they flew from India to the USA and meant to carry out this disastrous nuclear terror plot and put the blame on Pakistan.

While ABC recently apologised for the misconstrued plot, Chopra was yet to address the issue.

" Malta takes in nobody". "This could compromise all the work and cooperation between us over the past few years". It added that the Aquarius "is still waiting for definitive instructions regarding the port of safety".

ABC issued an apology for the episode, saying in a statement, "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". "Would any Pakistani actress betray Pakistan or Islam the way she betrays India and Hinduism?" he asked his Twitter followers in a post subsequently retweeted over 3,000 times. In a tweet, Priyanka said that she is a "proud Indian" and it was never her intention to hurt anyone's sentiments.

The subject matter sparked backlash online with some viewers calling it a "nonsensical" and "stupid" episode, while many wondered how Chopra, an Indian actress, could have gone along with the storyline.

Now into its third season, the "baywatch" star made her US television debut in "Quantico", which first premiered in 2015. "It was certainly not our intention to offend anyone", the statement further read.
