Priyanka Chopra’s glorious launch in Hollywood ‘Quantico’ was thoughtfully planned by the actress and her team, because as she had put it in a proud way – This was no stereotypical role an Indian would be offered. There were shows after shows, that this actress attended and beamed with pride about representing our nation on an international platform with dignity. We all celebrated that but what happened now?
Twitter is now bursting out with anger and despise on the latest episode of Quantico where this very decorated agent Alex Parish, is working on Manhattan attacks and locates a rudraksh on the accused and deduces them to be of Indian origin (Indian Nationalists) out to defame Pakistan.
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 @priyankachopra .. sad

Guys disagree with @priyankachopra all you want, question her all you want, but please don’t use abusive language in replies .. keep the conversations civil.

Some of these replies from Indian Twitteratti were not only cynical but some of the went to the extent of trolling Priyanka’s choice of work and the complete failure of Quantico.
Oh another INTERNATIONAL attempt at HINDU terror? 🤔

26/11 Pak terrorists wore saffron band. A book came out blaming RSS. CONg invented “saffron terror” around same time
But never mind truth
Now @priyankachopra & #Quantico team put minority hindus lives at risk, what with trigger happy nutcases& radicals around
Class action worthy
