The show confused Chopra with Yukta Mookhey.

ABC's Nightline interviewed Priyanka Chopra, the lead actress in ABC's television show Quantico. However, when airing the introduction to Chopra's segment, they mistakenly showed pictures of Yukta Mookhey as part of the intro.

Mookhey is an Indian actress who won the Miss World title the year before Chopra did.

After Chopra's fans pointed out the mistake on Twitter and Chopra herself tweeted out the mistake, Nightline was quick to apologize and air a corrected version of the story. The video was titled "How 'Quantico' Star Priyanka Chopra Dealt With Race Issues.'"

Chopra thanked Nightline for their apology and correction.
