Priyanka Chopra accepts ABC’s apology over blunder

Los Angeles: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has accepted channel ABC’s apology for a faux pas it made during a TV show by featuring a photograph of another former Indian beauty queen rather than the ‘Quantico’ star.

Priyanka, a former Miss World, was on ABC’s ‘Nightline’ show when the channel aired a clip about her rise to fame. However, it ended up using Miss World 1999 Yukta Mookhey’s photograph instead.

While the show was trolled on social media, Priyanka took it on a lighter vein.

Priyanka tweeted: “Lol!”

ABC later issued an apology for the mistake and corrected the promo.

“Our sincerest apologies @priyankachopra. Here is the corrected story,” read a post on the Twitter handle of the network.

The 33-year-old actress, who plays an FBI agent in her international debut TV show ‘Quantico’, responded: “Thank you for the correction @Nightline.”

The twitterati, meanwhile, had their share of fun.

One pointed out the network’s mistake, and wrote: “Uh oh, @Nightline! That’s Yukta Mookhey when she was crowned Miss World. Not @priyankachopra”, while another tweeted: “Whoops, ABC promoted their new show with a photo of the wrong Indian woman.”
