WEB DESK: “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra has criticised Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s call for banning Muslim immigrants, saying generalising a type of people is “really primitive”.
Priyanka was named by Time among 100 most influential people thanks to her blossoming career in Hollywood.
Trump is also on the list and both attended a gala on Wednesday night.
“I just think you can’t put a ban on anyone. Generalizing a type of people is really primitive,” she said.
The 33-year-old star said the fight against domestic terrorism has grown so complex that “you can’t put a face on it anymore,” she added.
Chopra has previously been vocal about how her role in Quantico (where she plays an FBI agent) has been a breakthrough for non-mainstream artists.
In a video interview with Time, she says of Quantico: “When was the last time you saw an FBI agent with a hijab, you know? When was the last time you saw an Indian girl who is the headline of a show and the same time so unapologetic and bold and brazen, and not a doctor or a nerd or a computer scientist?”
Trump has been already criticised by celebrities like George Clooney and wife Amal for his controversial comments.
