ABC Promoted Priyanka Chopra’s ‘Quantico’ With Another Actress! Yikes!!!

Are Priyanka Chopra and Yukta Mookhey one and the same? No, I’ve not lost my marbles. Apparently, it’s hard to distinguish between the two former Miss World-s. At least that’s what ABC, the network which airs Priyanka’s new show, Quantico, thinks.

With Priyanka Chopra starring as the star of the new ABC show, it’s hard to miss the 33-year-old’s face when it’s plastered on billboards pretty much everywhere. But apparently, ABC, the network which actually airs the show, can’t distinguish between the two former beauty queens.

While it’s pretty normal for a network to promote the shows it airs, it’s NOT normal at all to use another actress’ screenshots while doing so. It’s pretty irresponsible on their part to confuse Priyanka Chopra with another actress and former Miss World, Yukta Mookhey. One Twitter user was quick to point out the faux pas that ABC ‘Nightline’ committed when it used Yukta Mookhey’s screenshots while talking about Priyanka Chopra.

If you see these pictures of the two women, you can clearly make out that they are NOT the same person.

ABC, on the other hand, has since realized its mistake and apologized to Priyanka Chopra and corrected their story.

We just hope ABC or any other network for that matter doesn’t make the same mistake twice.

Quantico premiered in the US on September 27th, 2015, to good reviews, and will air its pilot in India on Star World on October 3rd.

Are you excited for Priyanka’s American TV debut? Will you watch the show when it premieres in India? Tell us in the comments below.
