Chopra had been the subject of a furious street march in Delhi last weekend following the broadcast of the 'Quantico' episode.
Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra has issued an apology following a backlash regarding her participation in American TV series ‘Quantico’, which showed her character uncovering a terrorist plot concocted by Indian Hindu nationalists.
A recent episode of the homeland security thriller depicted Chopra’s character, a FBI agent named Alex Parrish, unveiling and foiling a terrorist plot. In the episode, Hindu terrorists had tried to frame Pakistanis for an attack planned ahead of a summit between India and Pakistan over Kashmir, a disputed Himalayan territory that the nuclear-armed neighbours both claim, and have fought two wars over it since the end of World War II.
The episode aired on June 1st, but many in India were incensed by it, calling the Indian-born former Miss World Chopra a traitor for taking part in it. She was the target of a street protest in Delhi on Saturday (June 9th), with a fringe Hindu group demanding she be exiled to Pakistan as punishment.
The pair were spotted together twice over Memorial Day weekend.
The latest stars to have got the wheels turning at the romance rumour mill are Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, who roused suspicion - not for the first time - that they are dating after being spotted practically joined at the hip over the Memorial Day weekend.

Clearly, it's a risky proposition adapting a cheesy vintage TV series for the big screen: this is the second one that's gone awry this year, after CHiPs. But it doesn't have to be like this. Lively movie versions of Charlie's Angels and 21 Jump Street proved that with inventive writing, snarky performances and deranged energy, the result can be thoroughly entertaining. Sadly, this movie falls back on cheap jokes that simply aren't that funny. Fans of Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will still have a good time - they're both unstoppably engaging - but the truth is that this simply isn't good enough.
We're back in Emerald Bay, where the beefy hotshot Mitch (Johnson) heads up the lifeguard crew with babes Stephanie and CJ (Ildenesh Hadera and Kelly Rohrbach). And now they're training up three new recruits: fallen Olympic swimming champ Matt (Efron), feisty hottie Summer (Alexandra Daddario) and pudgy geek Ronnie (Jon Bass). Meanwhile, as various crimes and calamities strike the beach, Mitch decides to investigate everything himself without the help of the local police. And as he becomes convinced that resort owner Victoria (Priyanka Chopra) is involved in bribery, extortion, drug running and murder, he sends his lifeguards undercover to catch her. Which of course is just a bit beyond what they were trained to do.

There is no better lifeguard team out there than that of Los Angeles' Baywatch. However, they are seriously losing money and in order to boost their brand, a PR executive encourages them to get some fresh blood on the team. Matt Brody may have landed two gold medals in the field, but that doesn't guarantee he'll be right for the squad. He's far from an impressive addition in the eyes of Mitch Buchanan; he may be prettier, but he hasn't got the brains or the brawn to match up to him. Matt thinks the job is just about educating people on sunburn and stopping them from drowning, but when it becomes clear that there's a drug ring in the area and a body subsequently washes up on the beach, their job gets a whole lot more complicated. Yeah, they should probably leave it to the police, but instead they decide on an unauthorised undercover sting operation instead. Maybe thrill-seeking Matt can teach Mitch and the team a thing or two about living life on the edge. Or maybe he'll just run like hell.

Dusty is a super swift cropduster whose horsepower would be a force to be reckoned with for many aircrafts were he to compete with them for speed. However, there's just one problem; Dusty is terrified of heights. Cropdusting allows him to skim the ground as he flies so he never has to face to fears. But his dreams of contending at the legendary aviation races means he is desperate to reach the clouds and, with the help of his best friend Skipper - a former Navy plane - he looks set to finally conquer his anxieties. Alongside his tank truck coach Chug, he prepares for the flight of his life as he tackles the likes of the Great White North star Rochelle, the legendary Bulldog and the egotistical Ripslinger for a place among the worldwide aviation champions.
