Priyanka Chopra’s received rave reviews for her portrayal of an FBI agent in the new ABC Network’s spy drama ‘Quantico’, so it must have come as a mild surprise for her when a news programme on the same network mistook her for fellow actress and beauty queen Yukta Mookhey.
The blunder was made this weekend on ‘Nightline’ as it promoted an interview with Chopra. ABC quick apologized for the mistake.
The story deals with the racial bullying Chopra suffered during her school days in the United States. Chopra had moved to New York aged 13 to study.
To her immense credit, Chopra took ABC’s oversight in her stride, simply tweeting “LOL”.
Mistaken identities apart, Chopra can be utterly thrilled after ‘Quantico’ received critical acclaim pretty much across the board. Even on the occasions the show itself was criticized – one reviewer called it a “silly spy drama” – Chopra won praise for her portrayal of FBI agent Alex Parrish.
The role’s a major coup for Chopra, 33, and critics agreed.
“Naturally Gorgeous and Charismatic”, one reviewer described Chopra whilst another said Chopra "has a poise and sexual spark that suggests a formidable potential FBI agent whose mind and beauty are equally stunning".
The former Miss World’s character Agent Parrish is among a group of young FBI recruits, all with specific reasons for joining the Bureau, who battle their way through training at the FBI’s Quantico base in Virginia.
One of those recruits goes on to launch a devastating terror attack – “the worst on American soil since 9/11” – and Agent Parrish is framed for the attack.
Parrish, of course, has nothing to do with it and embarks on a mission to clear her name and protect the country she loves.
Producers have described ‘Quantico’ as ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ meets ‘Homeland’: two of the finest shows to come out of America in recent years and, ABC’s nightlight producer apart, everyone appears to agree.Read More »
