ABC apologizes for mixing Priyanka Chopra with Yukta Mookhey


Priyanka Chopra’s first Hollywood venture ‘Quantico’ was premiered on Sunday and received accolades from ever quarter but along with appreciation came embracement when ABC mistook Yukta Mookhey as Priyanka Chopra and show her Miss World victory footage on Nightline, ABC's late night news bulletin.

When they realize the mistake, they soon made the correction but social media already

#Uh oh, @Nightline! That's Yukta Mookhey when she was crowned Miss World. Not @priyankachopra!

#Uh @Nightline… you used the WRONG Bollywood star in your segment! WATCH the awkwardness HERE! http://goo.gl/KmcTk7 

Nightline apologizes Priyanka for the mistake and after they tweeted the correction:

#Our sincerest apologies @priyankachopra . Here is the corrected story: http://abcn.ws/1NZSRZP

Priyanka Chopra reciprocates

#Thank you for the correction @Nightline .. #Quantico http://twitter.com/Nightline/status/648908847193661440 …

Yukta Mookhey was crowned Miss World in 1999 and Priyanka crowned Miss World in 2000. ABC might have find quite resemblance between Priyanka and Yukta.  

Priyanka was highly applauded for her role in ‘Quantico’. International media and viewers hail Priyanka and her debut Hollywood series ‘Quantico’. She appeared on the American famous talk show ‘Jimmy Kimmel’s show and looked stylish in black knee length attire teamed with red lip-lick.

In ‘Quantico’, Priyanka plays the lead character of Alex Parrish, who becomes the FBI's prime suspect following a terrorist attack. The show revolves around a group of young Federal Bureau of Investigation recruits, who are training at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
