Actress Priyanka Chopra's American TV show Quantico is facing a backlash from a number of fans for portraying Indian nationalists as terrorists who were trying to frame Pakistan in a terror plot, even though it is a series of fiction.

Following this, without taking names, Vir expressed his disappointment with a sarcastic solution on Twitter on 10 June.

He posted: "Idea: In the future, Indian content should have advance apologies from artistes. Apologise first, make the content you want. Like a prepaid phone plan for sensitive people."
