Priyanka Chopra’s US series Quantico’s latest episode has faced severe backlash for portraying ‘Indian nationalists’ as terrorists, Hindustan Times reported.
Having said that, it was reported that the series will not be returning for a fourth season, which garnered various reactions from fans.
In the episode, which aired on June 1, an MIT professor acquires uranium with which he plans to make a nuclear bomb. An India-Pakistan summit to be held in New York City is his target.
The group apparently plans an attack in Manhattan with the intention of blaming it on Pakistan.
Meanwhile, this has angered several fans online.
Now Bhakts are helping supar flop show Quantico, hardly any viewership after 1season, producer are not likely go for next season but this “Indian terrorist” plot is giving them fuel which they wanted.

I can’t believe #Quantico brought up the Kashmir and relationship issues between India & Pakistan this way. Makes me laugh more than anything. Also they’re walking with a nuclear bomb in hand in the middle of Nyc and not scared it might blow up???

What the hell was this episode of #Quantico .. they tried to show ‘Indian nationalists’ (their term) trying to blow up Manhattan to frame Pakistan.. I don’t even know what sort of ridiculous narrative was this episode trying to set.. nonsensical stuff..

Sasti Malal Priyanaka Chopra starrer #Quantico tried to show Indians trying to blow up Manhattan to frame Pakistan..
Never ever make these bollywoodiyas as ur Icons.
They can stoop to any level just for sake of some money and fame.

All the things @priyankachopra has to do to establish herself in Hollywood…
Fake accent, fake mannerisms and the latest one : Portraying HINDUS (referred to as Indian Nationalists) as Terrorists that wear Rudraksha, try to blow up Manhattan & blame it on Pak! #Quantico

@priyankachopra shame on u…Describing Indians as terrorists in #Quantico You should oppose them as being an Indian.Sometimes I do not understand being proud of being an Indian or shy because Indians only insult Indian.

I work in Manhattan. Thousands of Indians work in Manhattan. Plotting a bomb blast in Manhattan is as good as plotting it in New Delhi.#Quantico writers mom dropped him/her on head or Pro-Pakistan/Islamic radical views have entered Hollywood.
And @priyankachopra how cud you?

#Quantico .. when have “Indian Nationalists” attacked/ terrorized anything around the world. What is this show trying to portray? Please know something about Indian Nationalism, Team Quantico before airing such content. This is highly disturbing. We expect some apologies

Now #Quantico will become the favorite show of all liberals and warriors of free speech. Whenever you think that bollytards can’t stoop down below a certain level, they’ll prove you wrong.They can sell anything for fame & money, literally anything!

Quantico, from ABC Studios and producer Mark Gordon, was a breakout when it debuted in 2015, setting delayed viewing lift records.
