After Quantico producers, lead actress Priyanka Chopra apologised for a recent episode of the show, which angered several Indian fans. In a tweet, Priyanka said that she is a "proud Indian" and it was never her intention to hurt anyone's sentiments. "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.
