Chopra, who plays Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Alex Parrish on the show, has been at the centre of all the backlash, with people blaming her for agreeing to the role.

The particular episode of Quantico, aired on June 1, triggered severe furor in India with several Indian hardliners taking to social media to condemn the particular episode's story and their very own former Miss World Priyanka Chopra.

A Hindutva group in Delhi protested against Priyanka Chopra on Saturday over her American series Quantico's episode, which showed Indian nationalists in poor light. That was not and would never be my intention. "I'm a proud Indian and that will never change", Chopra tweeted after receiving criticism and backlash, which ABC says has been "unfairly aimed" at her.

They also stressed that "Quantico" is a work of fiction. "It was certainly not our intention to offend anyone", ABC said in a statement on Friday.

The Blood of Romeo synopsis read, "When a physics professor at a major US university steals weaponized uranium, the team scrambles to find the professor and the missing uranium before it can be used against an important global summit meeting in New York City".


Bollywood global icon Priyanka Chopra was recently mired in a controversy when a recent episode of her popular US TV show Quantico was premiered.

Since the vast majority of Pakistan is Muslim, Parrish discovers the trick after finding a religious Hindu symbol around one of the assailant's necks, leading to the Indian connection.

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

"I did a talk previous year on Hollywood and Propaganda, specifically how Muslims are treated in film", she stated. ABC, however, said in its statement the actress shouldn't be blamed.

A lot of fans who tuned in to watch the drama were offended by the way Quantico portrayed Indian terrorists.
