    ABC Apologised For Using A Photo Of The Wrong Indian Actress While Promoting Priyanka Chopra



    ABC Nightline tweeted an apology:

    Our sincerest apologies @priyankachopra . Here is the corrected story:

    Priyanka Chopra is making waves all over the U.S. from dominating American publications to taking over Times Square.

    But while promoting her new FBI show Quantico, it seems the ABC network confused her with another former Miss World.

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

    ABC Nightline put up screenshots of actress Yukta Mookhey at Miss World 1999 while promoting Chopra's interview that will air on September 29.

    Ironically, Mookhey who was crowned in 1999, handed over the title of Miss World to Chopra who won in 2000.

    Chopra didn't think too much about it, and laughed the entire thing off.

    Hopefully, ABC gets it right the next time.
