New York: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, the star of American TV series Quantico, has slammed Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's call to ban Muslim immigrants from the US.

Priyanka shared her views about the battle against extremism, which has come up repeatedly in the 2016 presidential race, at the TIME 100 gala on Tuesday night here, reports

Priyanka's name has been featured in Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the world alongside Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, singer Nicki Minaj and Trump.

“I just think you can’t put a ban on anyone. Generalising a type of people is really primitive,” Priyanka said.
