Since Priyanka Chopra made her debut on American television last week on ABC’s new show, Quantico (and on October 3 in India on Star World) – she plays Alex Parrish, a young FBI appoint implicated in a terror attack . The actor, who won Miss India in 2000, going on to become one of Hindi film’s most liberal of promises and well-paid actresses, is experiencing what it means to be newly famous all over again.
even though the show may have received mixed reviews, Chopra’s performance is the talk of town. Variety magazine called her an “arresting lead”; The New York Times said she was “the strongest human asset on the show” and ringtailsaid “Chopra’s a huge star overseas for a reason: She’s very compelling on screen”. And then, came a surprise.
On September 29, ABC made a blunder when it confused Chopra for another beauty queen from India in a promo advertising ‘Nightline’. Yukta Mookhey, who was Miss World in 1999 was passed off as Chopra. Social media users jumped at the faux pas, and ‘Nightline’ issued an Instant apology.
