A representative of the actress didn’t confirm the head injury, but said, “…There was a minor incident last night (Thursday) on set. Priyanka was immediately taken to the hospital, examined by a doctor and released. She is resting comfortably at home on doctor’s orders, and will return to work after the weekend."

Priyanka was noticeably absent during a press event for ‘Quantico 2 on Friday. Meanwhile, the production of the ABC show, which shifted filming to New York for the second season, will not be halted while Priyanka recovers.

She will feature as the antagonist Victoria Leeds in the action comedy starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, among others.
