ABC’s ‘Nightline’ mistakes Priyanka Chopra with Yukta Mookhey, furnishes apology on Twitter

ABC's late night news bulletin 'Nightline' used footage of Miss World Yukta Mookhey, while mentioning Priyanka Chopra as they reviewed the first episode of 'Quantico'.

Hollywood TV show ‘Quantico’, which premiered in USA on Sunday night (September 27), has been garnering a lot of attention across the world and with this, one can assume that Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who stars in the show as the lead, would be a household name now.

But contrary to this, ABC’s late night news bulletin ‘Nightline’ used footage of Miss World Yukta Mookhey, while mentioning Priyanka as they reviewed the first episode of ‘Quantico’.

The goof-up was brought to notice on Twitter.

The tweet was even retweeted by one of Priyanka’s fanpages on Twitter and that’s how it came to the actress’ notice too.

Having pointed to on the microblogging site, ‘Nightline’ instantly changed the image and republished the story. The Twitter handle posted:

Priyanka was gracious enough to accept the apology.

For the uninitiated, Yukta Mookhey was crowned Miss World in 1999 and Priyanka the next year.
