Despite airing on the same network as Quantico star Priyanka Chopra, the team behind ABC’s Nightline mistakenly included a photo of another actress in a promo for an interview with her, soon after issuing a public apology for the error.

As noted on Twitter, images of fellow Indian actress Yukta Mookhey appeared in the Nightline promo for Chopra’s segment. They featured Mookhey when she was crowned Miss World in 1999. Chopra won the Miss World title in 2000.

Nightline apologized for the images being included and for misidentifying Chopra by issuing the corrected version of the story. Chopra’s interview focused on, among several topics, how she has dealt with racial issues in her career.

Chopra initially responded to the fan-finding of the gaffe, and then later thanked Nightline for issuing a correction.

Quantico airs Sundays on ABC. For more on the show, read EW’s recap of the series premiere.
