Priyanka Chopra slammed for portraying negative image of Hindus in her show Quantico

The episode features a group of Indian nationalists who plot a bomb blast in Manhattan, New York, with the ultimate intention of framing Pakistan for the incident.

The latest episode of Priyanka Chopra-starrer Quantico, which portrayed some Indian nationalists as terrorists, has not been received well by Indian viewers and fans of the show.

Priyanka Chopra’s American television drama series Quantico has landed itself in a soup after one of its episodes recently struck a wrong chord with the audience. The episode shows ‘Indian nationalists’ plotting an attack in Manhattan with the ulterior motive of blaming it on Pakistan. The scenario left many high and dry on social media with many criticising the makers’ decision to use a risque plot as such. The episode, aired on June 1, shows an MIT professor, who is in possession of uranium, planning to attack an India-Pakistan summit in New York.

Subsequently, fans and followers of Chopra and the series called the narrative “stupid, ridiculous and nonsensical”. “What the hell was this episode of #Quantico .. they tried to show ‘Indian nationalists’ (their term) trying to blow up Manhattan to frame Pakistan.. I don’t even know what sort of ridiculous narrative was this episode trying to set.. nonsensical stuff..,” and “They try to wade into the India-Pakistan issue and come up miserably short.. the storyline is not just implausible, the narrative is faulty feels like them trying to create a false equivalence where none exists.. all this on a show with an Indian actress,” were some responses the episode garnered on social media.
Many twitter users slammed her and started a campaign against her , her show quantico and also against Samsung because she is brand ambassador of Samsung.

And the reactions…….
