Los Angeles sources reported that ABC Studios, the executive producers of Priyanka Chopras show “Quantico”, has extended an apology to fans who were offended by an episode of the show which portrayed Indian nationalists as terrorists who were trying to frame Pakistan in a terror plot. As per report they said that they regret stepping into “a complex political issue”, and they didn’t intend to offend anyone.
Meanwhile the episode, entitled The Blood of Romeo, aired on June 1. In it, Priyanka’s character, FBI agent Alex Parrish, thwarts a terror plot just days before a summit between India and Pakistan is to be held, reports Hollywoodreporter.com. Furthermore during her investigations, Parrish finds a religious Hindu symbol a Rudraksh chain on the neck of one of the suspects leading her to conclude that the plot was devised by Indian nationalists to frame Pakistan in a nuclear terror attack.
Moreover the statement read “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 not 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. They also stressed that “Quantico” is a work of fiction.
