LOS ANGELES (AP) - ABC’s “Nightline” is apologizing for confusing new network star Priyanka Chopra with another Indian actress.

The news magazine aired a feature earlier this week about Chopra, the star of ABC’s new drama “Quantico.” A video shot supposedly showing Chopra in the Miss World pageant was included.

But the video was of Yukta Mookhey, who won the crown in 1999. Chopra was the 2000 Miss World winner.

The error was noted online by viewers, and ABC responded with an apology and posted a corrected version of the “Nightline” story online.

Chopra, a Bollywood star who plays an FBI recruit in “Quantico,” responded to the mix-up on Twitter by posting “LOL” and linking to another post that read, “Uh oh, @Nightline!”
