Priyanka Chopra’s American drama show Quantico has landed itself into trouble after one of their episodes showed Indian nationalists plotting an attack on Manhattan with the motive of blaming Pakistan for the attack. This episode struck a wrong chord with Indian audiences and they took to social media to express their anger and disappointment on the makers of the series who chose to use such a plot. The episode was aired on June 1 and it shows MIT professor is in the possession of uranium and is planning to attack an India-Pakistan summit in New York.
The fans and followers of Priyanka Chopra and Quantico called the narrative stupid and criticised for using such sensitive topic and showcasing it all wrong. One of the Twitter users said, “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..” while the other said, “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.”
