Priyanka Chopra’s American TV show was recently trolled for showing a Hindu character as the perpetrator of a terror attempt in Manhattan.
As soon as this particular episode of Quantico aired, Twitterati, as usual, started trolling the makers and Priyanka Chopra.
Days after the merciless trolling, Priyanka finally took to Twitter to apologize. The show makers even issued a statement in defense of their lead actress.
I’m extremely saddened and sorry that some sentiments have been hurt by a recent episode of Quantico. That was not and would never be my intention. I sincerely apologise. I'm a proud Indian and that will never change.— PRIYANKA (@priyankachopra) June 9, 2018

Now, actor and filmmaker Pooja Bhatt has come to Priyanka's rescue and has slammed the social media trolls.
When Priyanka Chopra makes a mark for herself Internationally we claim her achievements as our own & then threaten to ban her films & make her apologise for a work of fiction that has been created by someone else. Can we please attempt to be larger than that?— Pooja Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) June 11, 2018
Pooja is one of the very few celebrities who has come out in support of Priyanka.
